Prayer Focus: Education Programs
Our education programs provide the opportunity for our Team to build deep and lasting relationships with the families we serve.
Education with Heart for Lebanon ranges from literacy programs with adults to non-formal education centers for children to Missional Leadership Development for 116 adults who are being discipled and eduated to lead in their camps and become disciple makers. These programs allow us to reach people ages 5 to 60+ with access to quality biblical based education. Two H.O.P.E. (Helping Overcome Poverty through Education) Centers are providing opportunities for teachers reach 300 students from grades 1 to 5 with Christian character traits, English, math, and science. Another 50 students are receiving scholarships and attend higher grades at one of the local Christian schools in the area.
Here is a story you helped make possible:
Hassan is in 5th grade and is hardworking and serious when it comes to his education. Throughout the year fear became a struggle for Hassan. However, listening to his teachers’ voice messages, that always encouraged Hassan, was eye opening for his mother.
She said, “When I heard how you were so patiently correcting his mistakes but encouraging him and pointing out the good in his work, I was amazed because we never thought or knew that this is how it should be. My husband is a Sheikh, he is strict and wants everything perfect, in which he pressures our children to work hard, but it has led to fear.”
The teachers had a chance to talk to the father and understand his way of dealing with his children’s education. By the end of this call, both teachers and parents agreed to help Hassan by supporting and encouraging him. The father also mentioned that there are many international organizations that visit their camp and offer help, but Heart for Lebanon has done it differently and he appreciates that.
