Train students, teachers and parents

Make sure that everyone involved in the project understands how it will work.

Explain how the system will work to the lantern group leaders. For example, students should not use the lanterns in the kitchen or let their parents use them for cooking, because the heat from the fire can damage the lanterns. Lanterns should also be kept away from water. Group members should be gathered every evening to study for a few hours. Parents and community members should also be informed of how the lantern group works and be encouraged to support the children.
