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?
