Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. (Matthew 24.35)

Literacy is a basic human right. For Christians, reading the Bible is vital to grow in faith and discipleship. 

In sub-Saharan Africa, it’s thought that around 182 million adults are unable to read and write – and around two-thirds of these are women. 

Our unique literacy programme uses the Bible to help women across Africa learn to read and write. Becoming literate gives women access to God’s word, and opens up new opportunities. Many women see their value in society for the first time. 

You can set women on a new path as they gain literacy skills and self-worth through God’s word.

Joy Adam, a 34-year-old single parent to six children, never went to school because her parents were poor. Today, she earns a living farming other people’s fields, around her village in Malawi. 

But Bible Society’s literacy class has been life-changing. ‘The hardest part is learning to hold a pencil and write, but it’s getting easier,’ said Joy. ‘When I was illiterate, I felt myself a bad person. Literate people despised me, looked down on me. I feel their attitude has changed now that I study. Now, I can read how many times to take medicine, and I understand road signs. For my children, I hope they will finish school.’
