“My pastor always shares from the Word of God. Most of the believers are able to take up their Bibles and read along with the pastor, but I couldn’t. I was embarrassed. … I wanted to experience God’s Word by reading the Scriptures myself.”
You can bring these poor women the hope found only in Jesus by teaching them to read.
Your gift to the GFA World Women’s Literacy Fund will enable women to read and study God's Word on their own, protect their families and learn some of life's most basic lessons.
The literacy book is full of Scripture and moral lessons that women will embrace as they learn to read for the first time.
Basic math skills are taught as women go through this course, so now they will get fair prices in the market places.
These women are able to provide for their families in ways they couldn’t before: tutoring their children, protecting from harm, and teaching them God’s Word.
Her family trapped in poverty, Asha grew up without her most basic needs. Yet still she faithfully went to school —until her teacher beat her for not having enough paper to complete her assignment. She never went back. It wasn't until she attended GFA-supported literacy training classes that she was able finish learning to read and write. See the difference being made in the lives of other women like Asha.
