Education for Liberation (E4L) works in the slums of New Delhi to meet two urgent needs: the recognised need for education and the unrecognised need for the gospel.
By reaching out to the community through education, E4L serves in a way that local people can immediately understand, whilst also sharing the good news of Christ with them. They offer literacy and numeracy classes for children and literacy and sewing classes for women. The women and children hear from God’s word every time they attend the programme.
Across the four slums they work in, 137 children and 16 women attend E4L, 80% of which are from Hindu or Muslim backgrounds. Since this project began in 2008, many women and children have begun attending church and several have turned to Christ.
All E4L leaders and teachers are from the local church family and receive ongoing training in teaching the Bible. E4L also runs regular evangelistic events, weekly bible clubs and ladies’ prayer meetings.
Dear prayer partners and supporters,
We would like to thank you for your prayers and support for the E4L ministries.
From March 2020 until the end of the year we were not able to meet with the E4L children. In the initial months of lockdown we thought it would all be over within few months and we were not ready to run it online. But in May our teachers started contacting children through phone calls and discovered that many families had left Delhi because they don’t have jobs in Delhi. Those who stayed here were struggling for food. We started providing them with groceries and medicines.
