Literacy school

Interesting Fact

Before we came, the literacy rate in our village was very low. The local school for kids is located about 1.5 hours straight up the mountain from us, so many children would not make the hike each day to attend school. Several years ago, we started a literacy program, teaching people to read and write in their own language. Now we have possibly 85% of the people in our village who can read and write. The entire literacy program has been in the hands of the people in our village for several years now, as they continue to teach their own people. One mom of 8 kids decided to learn to read in order that she could read God’s Word for herself! So exciting.
