UBS: Global Literacy


This project includes funding for two part-time Literacy Officers to assist the United Bible Societies Global Literacy Coordinator based in Bangalore, India. Through this project, the United Bible Societies (UBS) will continue to provide support to Bible Societies worldwide in their literacy work, as well as expanding that support for French and Spanish-speaking Bible Societies.

With 39 Bible Society literacy projects in progress around the world, and 20 proposed literacy projects for 2024, there is an urgent need to extend dedicated services to support literacy work within the UBS Fellowship.

Moreover, different working groups will be formed in 2024 as advisory groups to help plan literacy activities in the Asia Pacific, Anglophone Africa, Francophone Africa and Latin America which will need the dedicated assistance of the Literacy Officers, especially in the action plans for 2024-2026.


  • 39 Bible Society literacy projects are in progress around the world, seeking to improve literacy outcomes for local people with support from UBS.
  • 20 proposed Bible Society literacy projects for 2024 in local areas where literacy is low
