Proverbs 22:6 says “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Raising the next generation of leaders and contributors to society is not a task that must be taken lightly. Children are sponges who absorb everything that’s happening around them, and this is what shapes who they will grow up to be. It’s easy to write them off because of their size and naivety, but it’s in their adolescence that they can learn the most. 

Reading Corners is a Y-Malawi program that aims to educate the young minds of Malawi in the rural areas. In addition to teaching them how to read and write the basics, Reading Corners also shares the Word of God with these children. Every week, many children gather to hear Bible stories from Y-Malawi volunteers. This program is a safe space for these children to learn more about Jesus. A student from the program, Joyce, said “I am so happy that we can read these stories about Jesus from the Bible.” It’s clear that these weekly meetings are a source of joy for the children. 

The school supplies and Bible donations are what make this program possible for these children. In Luke 18:16, Jesus said “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Children are just as important as anybody else in the kingdom of God and it’s important for us to provide them a way to learn about Him so that as they grow, they’re equipped with His Word.
