More than half of all Pakistani women are illiterate – 80 per cent in rural areas. The gift of literacy is incredibly valuable because it provides a stronger financial and spiritual foundation for families, and can transform lives. That’s why Bible Society Australia is helping illiterate women by supporting Bible-based literacy classes in rural communities.
This year, the aim is to set up 350 extra classes and teach 8,000 more women. Because mothers are responsible for teaching their children, this could impact over 50,000 people. Will you help us turn on the light of literacy for another 8,000 women this year?
