UBS: Equip a Literacy Advisor


This capacity building project for Bible Society literacy workers will impact about 30 literacy staff of Bible Societies in the Asia Pacific, thereby benefiting their literacy projects and thousands of learners in the coming years.

Many Bible Societies in the Asia Pacific region are running literacy projects in their respective countries, seeking to meet the need for literacy in their countries and empower people with reading and writing skills.

In the competency survey conducted in 2023, a need was highlighted: training staff in how to develop literacy material, which is a component of the literacy lifecycle.


  • There are 58.8 million non-literate adults in Pakistan
  • There are 41.25 million non-literate adults in Bangladesh
  • 18 Bible Societies work in 52 countries in the Asia Pacific Region
