Why are we riding?
Each year, the Ceylon Bible Society aims to run literacy classes for children through the network of churches and Christian organisations in Sri Lanka, especially in rural, slum and undeveloped areas. These classes increase access to the Scriptures for underprivileged children growing up in areas where they do not have their basic needs met or access to proper education. The classes will be run in the Sinhala and Tamil languages and include reading Scripture through simple Bible stories (both printed and digital), explaining stories from the Bible and Christian books, and covering simple teachings of Jesus, Gospel parables, songs and other audio material.
Will you help us turn on the light of literacy for disadvantaged families today?
