Literacy efforts in the midst of closed schools

Though Egypt continues to keep schools closed (since January–with offering classes via television and the internet), our program has continued to keep literacy and education support classes going for the kids that need it. We have reduced the groups to smaller sizes, with safety in mind, but have been able to help many of these kids not fall behind, but move forward.

In 2020, with all of the challenges, we still were able to keep 67 children enrolled in literacy classes with our tutors. Of these 67, we had 30 of them “graduate” and become officially literate! With the illiteracy rate of our villages typically being 30-50%, this is great news.

Though our desire is for 100% of the children in our program to become literate, we continue to need prayers for this. Also, we are looking into expanding our literacy program for siblings, so pray for wisdom and guidance on this.
