This project aims to strengthen the capacity of Bible Societies in the Asia Pacific for Bible based literacy work. The project funds the position of the UBS Literacy Advisor for the Asia Pacific region, who works with the Global Literacy Coordinator of UBS to establish a global framework for literacy (including project prioritisation, quality assurance and development) and will serve as professional advisors to Bible Societies in their planning and implementation of literacy programs.
Without help from literacy experts, Bible Society literacy projects can lack quality in design and implementation. Literacy experts are required to ensure that projects are the very best in both of these areas. Literacy work is a central part of Bible Societies mission around the world. The United Bible Societies are committed to focus on the 750 million non-literate adults around the world.
