THE NEED IS GREAT


In Australia, we are blessed with access to free education; however, millions of people in other countries don't have the same opportunity for education.

Non-dominant ethnicities in places like Laos, Myanmar and Bangladesh, to this day, still struggle to have access to basic education, resulting in low literacy rates

SRI LANKA

1.6 Million

people without proper access to education.

LAOS

45%

are of ethnic minorities, mostly living in remote areas with limited access to education.

PAKISTAN

Only 50%

of women and girls aged 10 or older in Pakistan have ever attended school.

OUR WORK IN LAOS

Our Bible Society team in Laos runs a program to provide Bible-based literacy classes to those who have missed out on the opportunity for education.

There is a long waiting list of church members eager to be part of the program, and the goal is to start over 150 classes with up to 2,500 students.

Your donation provides a multi-faceted gift to non-literate people.

The gift of literacy helps end poverty, improves health and well-being, promotes gender equality, and allows one to read God's word for oneself.




Every $40

Could help a non-literate attend literacy classes in Laos for a year.



Every $70

Could help provide books and Scripture portions in the heart languages of people in Myanmar.



Every $120

Could help women in Bangladesh participate in a three-year literacy program.
