Did you ever stop to think: Lent and reflection
Theme: Lent
Country: Egypt

Lent is a time to reflect, pray and be thankful for the blessings that we have received. Help your pupils stop and think about what they have to be thankful for and explore the meaning of Lent.

Lent can also be a time to think about how we can help make life better for others. Meet 11-year-old Ahmad from Egypt who, like many other children, works tirelessly in a quarry in the El Minia region of Egypt.

Find out how Christian Aid partner Wadi el Nil supports families like Ahmad's and helps children find the room to stop and think, and return to school.
