Remedial Classes Offer Second Chance at Literacy

In some parts of Egypt, as many as 50 to 80 percent of students who graduate from high school are unable to read. Many students are simply pushed through grades rather than taught to understand concepts. Students from Christian homes are especially prone to neglect from teachers because of the stigma associated with their identity. This often results in many Christians living in poverty and never learning to read the Word of God.

The Egypt-Sponsor-A-Child program enables Christian workers to hold remedial classes for children, mostly from Coptic Christian homes. Many students are the first in their families to learn to read and write. Most importantly, they are learning from the Word of God and can now read it for themselves!
