Tasmania Bike for Bibles

I'm raising funds for the Bible Society and I'd love your support.

I'm fundraising for the Bible Society by taking part in the first three days of the 2019 Bike for Bibles ride around Tasmania. The funds I raise will support the work of Bible Society in Bangladesh 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. Of the 165 million people in the densely populated nation next to India, 65 per cent are semi-literate at best. 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 support me to help women in Bangladesh receive the life-changing love, freedom and redemption that comes from reading God’s word?

Thank you to my Sponsors
