Changing Lives Through Literacy!

“And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, ‘Read this,’
he says, ‘I cannot read.”
Isaiah 29:12 (ESV)

The verse above is the key Scripture for the Woman Urdu Literacy program that operates in the bastees (slums) of Islamabad, Pakistan. We introduced you to this program last November, and asked for your financial help in launch the first training, set to begin this past February.

Thanks to your generosity, 72 students successfully completed the six-month training in July, and another training will begin in October!

The classes teach basic literacy and math, and Biblical literature is integrated in the coursework. Because of these courses, graduates now have the opportunity to continue their education through correspondence courses or seek employment outside the slums… and those who have never been presented with the Gospel have now heard it.

The leaders of the Woman Urdu Literacy program are planning to expand into all of the slums in Islamabad (15-20 in all). Click here to help!
