March 2022

During lockdown, we had difficulties connecting with the project children. Almost all come from economically poor communities and they can not afford to have digital devices to have lessons online. Our teachers tried different creative ways to connect with the children. They called them on the phone one by one to teach them lessons. Sometimes the children were in groups of two or three, other times on their own.

Lockdown is relaxed now and the children are allowed to come back to the E4L centres. However, they have lost the habit of concentrating and sitting for four hours of study. Our teachers have had workshops on how to develop the habit of learning in small children. From February onwards, children have been returning to the centres.

We have four E4L centres in four different locations. Each location has 40 – 50 children. The sewing classes and adult literacy classes have also resumed, so many of our children's mothers are benefiting too. 

Prayer points

  • Pray for the teachers and volunteers as they prepare their lessons in new ways.
  • Pray for them as they show the gospel through their lives.
  • Pray for the children's parents as many do not have jobs.
  • Pray for their safety and their health.
  • Pray for the women who come for sewing and adult literacy classes.

Thank you so much for praying for us.

Devender and Sangeeta
