In celebration of International Literacy Day, Believers Eastern Church Diocese of Lucknow organized literacy awareness programs and distributed literacy books and educational aids to women in rural areas.
Women’s Fellowship teams from the Diocese went out into different communities and taught people about the importance of women’s education and how educating girls can bring about a change in their lives, and help in building stronger families, communities and economies.
The women’s fellowship teams also distributed around 90 literacy books and over 110 notebooks among women who have enrolled in adult literacy classes.
Arti, 25 years old, “I was so happy to attend today’s literacy day program. I had been longing for someone to teach me how to read and write. Now, through the literacy center I will be able to fulfill my dream. I am thankful to the church for this opportunity.
Mrs. Rabi Masih, 50 years old, is an illiterate woman. As a child she always wanted to go to school, but since the school was very far from her home, she couldn’t get an education. Even after her marriage, she tried different ways to study, but her efforts were in vain. She said, “I am thankful for today’s literacy day program and I’m glad that very soon I will be able to learn how to read and write”.
Through literacy classes, Believers Eastern Church offers illiterate women in rural communities a second chance at literacy which in turn opens new doors of opportunity and freedom for them.
