Egypt: The Light of Literacy


The Children and Adult Post Literacy project aims to build on literary skills in students of all ages and prevent a relapse into illiteracy. This project makes Scriptures available, accessible and affordable to adults and children. Additionally, the project facilitates personal and spiritual development as individuals accept responsibility and take initiative for their ongoing learning.

The quality of education in Egypt is low on the world scale. Teaching styles can sometimes be rigid; pupil participation is not encouraged enough. Many schools have poor infrastructure. Children often fail to properly learn literacy skills and a lack of practice can cause them to fall back into illiteracy. Those who are non-literate, often have poor communication skills and difficulties in focusing, listening, and understanding. Without this life skill, opportunities are limited, and personal confidence is also reduced.

This need is greater than ever, as children have missed out on school and church activities during the COVID-19 Pandemic.


  • 25% of people in Egypt are non-literate / 16 million people
  • 10-15% of the population are Christians
  • 80% of children leave Sunday school when they reach secondary school
