On August 13, 2019, we celebrate International Youth Day. According to the United Nations, there are 1.8 billion youths between the ages of 10 and 24 globally. Statistics show that 1 in 10 children live in conflict zones and 24 million are not in school. Pray for the next generation – for protection and safety, and for opportunities that will lead to better lives. Please pray for CBM’s programs in countries like the Dominican Republic, Rwanda, Kenya, Lebanon, Bolivia, India and the Philippines, where we work with local partners to provide access to education for the youth. Education and additional skills training are examples of good solutions that will help combat issues such as poverty and oppression.
