COPTIC CONTENT PROVIDERS
From day one, we realized that Coptic content is the most important component of this project. Most Coptic content providers work independently to enrich and update our Coptic heritage.
Great effort was done and is being done by a number of elite groups who serve tirelessly to glorify the name of GOD and spread the word to new generations, young generation that requires a new medium, a generation that has a completely different mindset.
We took it upon ourselves to work with the most recognized Coptic content providers to include their content and make it available to servants and kids and realize the highest possible value.
Below are some of the providers who kindly accepted to be included.
Southern United States Curriculum
Under the supervision of H.G. Bishop Youssef. A group of faithful servants from St. Mark Coptic Orthodox church in Houston felt the need for major modification of Sunday School Curriculum to better suite Coptic children in North America. Five years later, a revamped curriculum is published and now serving English speakers across the globe.
With the blessing of H.G. Bishop Youssef, Sons of Light app has the SUS Curriculum as an option for its English users all over the globe.

Youth Bishopric Cartoon Center
Youth Bishopric Cartoon Center is responsible for creating cartoon content for kids. It has a mission to simplify Coptic content and present it to kids in a visual and attractive format that kids are used to nowadays - as in other non-religious content they consume online.
The center created a wide range of cartoons in the form of Bible stories, Saints stories, Hymns for Kids and others.
The content is also available now through Sons of Light app.
Our ambition is even more than reaching out, we aspire to create our own original content, using state of the art technology, speaking the same language that our kids speak today, be it Augmented Reality, VIrtual Reality and Interactive Gamification of Bible study. We are on the lookout for the latest technology to bring a better Christian education to our kids. Our biggest challenge, besides finding the creative talents, is to secure funds to build such amazing content and tools.
