Teaching a Pakistani woman to read impacts not only her but her whole family and community as many women transfer their skills to those around them. This is why the Bible Society is working on providing literacy skills to Christian women in Pakistan, especially those living in rural areas.
Through providing literacy skills, we give these women the opportunity to read the Scriptures for their own personal growth, and also contribute to the building and development of their families. With your help, the Bible Society can provide Scripture portions for new readers while also making them available following the completion of the literacy courses.
“Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.” (Isaiah 58.10, NLT)
