Women's Literacy Program

There are over 250 million women in Asia who are illiterate.

These women face many difficulties, such as failing to keep their children safe because they can’t read warning labels, debt piling up because they can’t understand the bad contracts they sign and being cheated in the market place because they can’t do basic math. Worst of all – they can’t read the life giving messages found in the Bible.

Even if they want to read, there is no way to learn . . . until now. With your help, women in Asia can learn to read and will be equipped to tackle life’s hurdles.
