It is believed that cranes symbolize happiness, eternal youth and good fortune. This year, we are inviting every BAP student to fold an origami paper crane, and include a message of encouragement. Paper cranes from every region will be collected and distributed to younger students during the BAP International Day of Literacy at the 2020 Annual Meeting.
