Barnabas builds kindergartens for Christian children in Bangladesh

Project(s): 00-514

Country/Region: Bangladesh, Pakistan, South and East Asia, Middle East and North Africa

Three new kindergartens built in rural Bangladesh by Barnabas Aid are providing scores of Christian children with an education in a loving, Christian environment.

The day begins with prayer at the Bangladeshi kindergartens

They are among 37 Christian schools and education programmes that Barnabas Aid supports in eleven countries, through which 6,584 Christian children are being educated.

The kindergartens were built last year next to three Barnabas-supported primary schools, which 371 Christian pupils attend. In January, 95 youngsters started their school career at the kindergartens. Almost all of them come from families who experience much discrimination from the majority Bengali population.

Among the pupils are disabled sisters Asha (5) and Liza (6), whose parents felt a burden being lifted off them when their daughters were admitted to the school. Another pupil, five-year-old Shuili, who comes from an ethnic minority tribe, could not speak properly when she started attending but has now risen to the top of her class.

Each day begins with prayers, songs and stories from the Bible. The children are learning the Bengali language and English alphabet, and are memorising numbers.

Impoverished in Pakistan

On the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan, local Christians last year set up a primary school in two tents for 110 homeless Christians. Barnabas Aid is paying the salaries of three teachers and a watchman.

Before the school started the children, aged 4-11, were just running around the camp where their impoverished families live, without anything to do.

A local Christian leader said:

This school is a symbol of hope and light for our future generations.

    • Heavenly Father, we lift up to You today the heartbroken family of Mary Sameh George, a young Christian woman who was killed in an Islamist attack on a church in Egypt. We pray that You will comfort them and give them Your peace. We thank You that Mary was not ashamed to make her allegiance to You known, even taking the risk of provoking murderous anger against herself. We pray also for the families of three others who were killed in this attack at a church in Ain Shams, a suburb of Cairo, on 28 March. Lord God, may the hostility of Muslim Brotherhood supporters towards Christians in Egypt be restrained. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed 16 hours ago

    • Give thanks that as believers in some areas of Egypt continue to be at risk of violence from Islamists, Barnabas Aid is able to provide various kinds of practical help for needy Christians there, especially those most affected by the political turmoil. We are supporting Christian families in Upper Egypt with housing costs, medicines, food and schooling for their children, and 30 Christian students who were on the verge of dropping out of education because of lack of money have received funding to complete their education. Pray for all those receiving this help, that they will also be encouraged spiritually. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Wed, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Give thanks that the authorities in Egypt are pursuing justice for the Christian community following widespread violence against them by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood last summer. Christians were scapegoated by the Islamists for the downfall of President Mohammed Morsi. On 14 August, mobs torched scores of churches, Christian institutions and private property in what was described as the worst single day of violence against the Egyptian Church since the 14th century. Over 100 Muslims have been charged in connection with the attacks; at the time of writing they were due to stand trial for rioting, attacking citizens and targeting the churches and homes of Christians. Pray that justice will be done and restitution made to churches and individuals who suffered material losses. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Tue, Jul 2014 00:00

    • “I was so happy and treasure this Word of God. It brings me so much peace and hope.” Uu Dee KoMang, an elderly woman in Burma (Myanmar), was one of many Christians who recently received a Kachin Bible through Barnabas Aid. Two years ago the Burmese army entered her village and ordered everyone to leave within the hour. Uu Dee took some clothes and food and ran, but her Bible was too heavy to carry. Now living in a relocation camp, she regretted not taking it, until the Bibles from Barnabas arrived. Pray that God’s Word will comfort and strengthen these believers who have lost so much and will give them encouragement for the future. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Mon, Jul 2014 00:00

    • Pray for three Christian prisoners of conscience in Vietnam who are being denied access to Bibles and other sources of spiritual support. Prison guards in Hanoi and Thanh Hoa province have refused to allow Le Quoc Quan, a lawyer and activist, and bloggers Maria To Phong Tan and Paul Tran Minh Nhat to receive visits from their church leaders and have prevented them from receiving Communion. Maria is serving a ten-year prison sentence in a harsh labour camp; she has been beaten by other inmates. Pray that the Lord will sustain and build up the faith of our brothers and sister as they cry out to Him in their need (Psalm 142:6). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Jul 2014 00:00
