Challenge yourself to ride 1360km and raise funds to support women in Bangladesh.
Let's celebrate over 200 years of Bible Society in Tasmania and help women in Bangladesh learn to read!
When? February 8th – 22nd 2019
Where? Marrawah- Smithton – Burnie-Launceston- St Helens- Swansea-Hobart-Brontie Park-Strahan-Cradle Mountain-Launceston.
Why are we riding?
With your help, Bangladesh Bible Society will be able to provide reading and writing skills to at least 1000 women through 50 rural churches. Through literacy classes women will be able to read, write about and interact with the word of God, greatly influencing their lives and those around them.
Being able to read and write is a major challenge in Bangladesh. If you are a woman living in a rural area, your chances of being literate plummet. The ripple effects of no formal education are long-lasting, affecting everything from supporting children well, to work and social opportunities.
Will you help women in Bangladesh receive the life-changing love, freedom and redemption that come from reading God’s word?
