Linked to the IF Campaign, these resources are designed to inspire learners to create their wishes for a world without hunger, and to make a kite which they will decorate with their wish.



In this way learners will have the opportunity to share their message of hope simply by flying their own handcrafted kite.





You may even be able to tie this into one of the many national kite flying events that happen all across the UK. Send jwitcombe@oxfam.org.uk your kite images and we'll add them to an online gallery.



Learning outcomes: Investigating and making art craft and design using materials and processes, colour, pattern shape and form, thinking critically about issues, persuasive writing, communicating complex issues.

Oxfam Youth Ambassadors

This resource is suitable for curriculum-based classroom learning but it has been written primarily for Oxfam's Youth Ambassador Groups. Youth Ambassadors meet in their own time (with the support of a teacher) to learn together about global issues, whilst developing the skills and the confidence to make their voices heard. If you are using this resource in an extra-curricular setting then we suggest you register as a Youth Ambassador Group. Registered groups gain access to our structured award scheme, badges and certificates, newsletters, all the latest resources and one-to-one support by phone and email.
