I'm raising funds for the Bible Society and I'd love your support.
I'm fundraising for the Bible Society by challenging myself to ride 1,200 kms over 13 days across Tasmania. The funds I raise will support Bible Society's tax-deductible project in Bangladesh to provide reading and writing materials for literacy classes this year.
The Bangladesh Bible Society is seeking to reach children with the word of God through a literacy course designed especially for preschool-aged children in the rural and remote areas of Bangladesh. These children are prevented in beginning their education by poverty and distance. When they are older and able to travel, their lack of familiarity with the national Bengali language means attaining literacy is challenging.
In Bangladesh, tribal children (including those in the Garo, Santali, Chakma, Marma, and Tripura tribes) all start school in the Bengali language even though they speak in their mother tongue. Some of these tribes do not even have their language in written form, so learning literacy in Bengali is the only option.
Will you help us provide more literacy classes to children in Bangladesh today?
Thank you to my Sponsors
