FREEDOM TO READ
As we celebrate the many freedoms we have in America, let us remember those around the globe who are stripped of simple freedoms, like reading and writing…
1 in 5 adults worldwide cannot read or write. Not being able to read and write can truly make a person feel imprisoned in many ways. They experience isolation, low self-esteem, unemployment, low income, and many dangers related to the inability to read essential information. In addition, the higher number of illiterate individuals in a society, the slower the overall long-term GDP growth rate is.
Let’s join hands to break the shackles of illiteracy around the globe!
How we do it?
One Mission Society’s ministry, Bridge to Reading Literacy, teaches adults to read the language they speak, in areas where OMS-related partners are planting churches. The volunteer tutors are trained to teach reading, writing, and basic math in their local churches in the Central African Republic, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (Africa), and in Colombia (South America) . This ministry is a powerful evangelism tool that is helping believers learn to read the Bible. Funding will assist OMS partner churches in need of chalkboards and simple school supplies.
