As many as 115 million children of primary school age around the world will watch their friends heading off to school, but will never experience that joy for themselves. Two-thirds of these children are girls.

ARAB World

Arab World Evangelical Ministers' Association (AWEMA),
Tirzah International's Partner in the Arab World

This partner has two education programs. One program is an educational, social, and psychological development program for children, from six to ten years of age, in needy areas. The program aims at developing education, morals, and skills of children from poor families in order to help them have a better future. This program is available in six areas in Egypt and also includes talent “fun” day festivals, and tutoring classes for primary and preparatory stage students. AWEMA staff conduct field visits to the children’s families to measure progress levels. AWEMA and Tirzah also provide some financial assistance for school fees, school supplies, clothing and medical care.  

AWEMA's second education program is a community literacy program aimed at improving the education and skills of young women and women from poor families. The program includes literacy classes for women and their daughters in four areas in Cairo and Alexandria. 

After going through this program, women happily report to AWEMA staff that they are now able to do their family’s marketing as they know how to count expenses.
