October 2021

We appreciate your prayers for Education 4 Liberation: an education project for underprivileged children in Delhi’s slums. E4L vision’s is to meet two needs: the visible need for education and the invisible need for salvation. 

Teachers getting ready for re-opening in November.

We have four E4L centres in four different locations. During lockdown, all centres were closed but our teachers related to children through WhatsApp video and messages. After some time, teachers started giving them written materials to work on at home and submit to the teachers. 

Teacher training workshop.

The pandemic situation is now getting better in India and Delhi so we can meet in-person again – with limited numbers and putting into practise instructions given by the government. We are going to open all four centres in the first week of November. The children will attend in different shifts so we can meet the requirement of limited numbers. On 4 and 5 October we had two days’ of teacher workshops, in preparation for our centres re-opening. 

Prayer points

  • Pray for our two Christmas events – one for the children who come to E4L and one for our church (Delhi Bible Fellowship). Pray that these can go ahead.
  • Pray for us as we re-start our E4L centres (they briefly opened from January to March 2021 but have mostly been closed since March 2020). Pray for safety for the children and staff.
  • Pray that the children will get back into the habit and system of learning as they come after a long gap of two years. 
  • Pray for the children’s parents as many are still going through financial struggles. Jobs have not been available in Delhi since the lockdown.
  • Pray for the COVID-19 vaccine. India is going to allow Indian covaxin at the end of November. 

Thank you so much,

Sangeeta Verma (Project Manager)
