Day 19 – Education
He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. - Deuteronomy 10:18
In 2019, due to a change in Government policy, children who do not have proper legal documentation to attend school in South Africa will no longer be permitted. The vulnerability of children increases, not only due to the lack of education, but in the routine of day-to-day living. Hands at Work sees Life Centres as opportunities to facilitate growth and development. Ask God to give Hands at Work wisdom and discernment. Pray for each child to enjoy learning at the Life Centre and that they will feel safe, even though it may look different than being in school. Pray for each child, that despite not being permitted to attend school, they will belong and will be accepted.
