More Than 100 Million Youth Were Illiterate As Of 2019 Data!

Worldwide, an estimated 260 million children, adolescents, and youths weren’t in school in 2020. And more than 100 million youths were illiterate as of 2019 data. Despite progress over recent decades, many children in school do not achieve functional literacy and numeracy skills due to overcrowded classes, lack of supplies, teachers who need more training, or disruption due to disasters and prolonged crises like the coronavirus pandemic.

COVID-19 exaggerated already difficult situations. An estimated 1.8 trillion hours of in-person learning have been lost since the pandemic began, with the number increasing daily. The resulting effects have contributed to an increased learning poverty rate, which measures the ability of children under ten to read and comprehend simple text. It’s estimated that 7 out of 10 children from middle- to low-income countries now fall under the category of learning poverty.

Ask yourself... How can I be a solution to this problem?

This is precisely why Tzion's Haven House was established; to create a safe environment for children, adolescents, and youth that fall into this category. We are here as a NFP to help those children in need with free tutoring, mentoring, life skills, and so much more. To read more on this article, please click the link below.

Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.—Jesus (Matthew 25:40, NIV)
