NSW Bike for Bibles 2021

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 at least 230km over 3 days. The funds I raise will support Bible Society's Bible-based Literacy project in Pakistan.

More than half of all Pakistani women are illiterate – 80 per cent in rural areas. The gift of literacy is incredibly valuable because it provides a stronger financial and spiritual foundation for families, and can transform lives. That’s why Bible Society Australia is helping illiterate women by supporting Bible-based literacy classes in rural communities.

For a woman, learning to read means being able to read the Bible for the very first time. Each student will receive her own copy of the New Testament in Urdu.

I (Annette) having worked for 2 yrs amongst illiterate women and men in Cambodia and Vietnam, I saw what a disadvantage it was for them to gain new knowledge and learn from historic writings like the Bible or professional writings in our field of health. I experienced those who did have opportunity learn to read, as able to progress so much quicker and gain new insights! 

Will you make a tax-deductible donation today and help us turn on the light of literacy for another 8,000 women this year?

Thank you to my Sponsors
