Challenge yourself to mountain bike ride 120km and raise funds to support adults and children in Egypt.
Let's transform lives through literacy in Egypt!
When? 4th - 6th November 2023
Where? Devonport to Bracknell TAS
Costs? $10 registration and $175 on road costs.
Why are we riding?
The quality of education in Egypt is low on the world scale. Teaching styles can sometimes be rigid; pupil participation is not encouraged enough. Many schools have poor infrastructure. Children often fail to properly learn literacy skills and a lack of practice can cause them to fall back into illiteracy. This need is greater than ever, as children have missed out on school and church activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Children and Adult Post Literacy project aims to build on newly learnt literary skills in students of all ages and prevent a relapse into illiteracy. This project makes Scriptures available, accessible and affordable to adults and children. Additionally, the project facilitates personal and spiritual development as individuals accept responsibility and take initiative for their ongoing learning.
Will you help us turn on the light of literacy for another 10,000 students this year?
