On 8 September 2021, on the occasion of International Literacy Day, Women’s Fellowship teams in Believers Eastern Church Diocese of Delhi took the initiative to start new adult literacy centers at three places.
Altogether, 18 illiterate women have enrolled for the adult literacy classes. The women’s fellowship teams provided the women with literacy books, writing slates and notebooks.
Puspika, one of the students of newly started adult literacy center, said, “At a very young age, I stopped going to school. My parents urged me many times to study but I did not pay heed to their advice. Only after I got married and had children of my own, I realized the importance of education. I am thankful to the sisters for starting a free literacy class for us. I enrolled in the class right away because I want to read and write.”
Literacy awareness programs also were organized at four different places by women’s fellowship teams. They taught the participants about the importance of education and how education can bring about a change in the lives of people. More than 60 women attended the programs held in these places.
