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 1,300 kms over 16 days across in southern Western Australia. (Originally, I signed up to ride in Tasmania in late January – early February. However, Covid uncertainty, border lockdowns and training injuries forced a change of plans. So sadly, and reluctantly, I had to abandon the Tasmania venture, and will instead ride a the same distance as the Tasmanian team, but in WA). Note that the Tasmanian riders eventually chose to ride 1300 km not 1600. The funds I raise will support Bible Society's tax-deductible project in Cambodia to provide reading and writing materials for literacy classes this year. I am highly motivated by the wonderful cause we will be riding for and will be doing my utmost to ensure my sponsors get a good return on their investment.

Read on to learn more about it….Illiteracy exposes Cambodian people to shame and exploitation and keeps people in poverty. Many of the youth and adult populations of rural Cambodia have not had the opportunity to receive a quality education due to the nation’s history of devastating war and genocide. Teachers are paid very low salaries, particularly in rural areas, where many only teach their students for two hours a day so they can earn additional income elsewhere.

The Learning through Listening literacy program was launched in Cambodia, partnering with local churches, to teach people how to read, by reading the Bible. Each year the program aims to provide literacy skills to a total of 5000- 6000 students, empowering illiterate people, so that they can read the Scriptures for their own personal growth and contribute more effectively to their communities.

This project has been running in Cambodia for over ten years, and in that time, it is estimated that approximately 46,000 previously illiterate people have learned to read.

Will you help us provide more literacy classes to Cambodia’s illiterate this year?

Thank you, I would value your support and encourage you to get behind this important cause!
