Lantern Projects was established to raise funds for small projects around the world. The projects request small amounts of funding for specific items. This enables adults and children an opportunity to contribute small amounts and see that they can make a difference in someone's life. The name Lantern Projects was based on a project for a school in rural Kenya where the students needed lanterns to be able to study at night. Some teachers, students and administrators got together and raised funds. The lantern symbol led to the motto of "Bringing the Light of Hope to Others".
