Literature for New Readers in Bangladesh

This project seeks to raise $2,200 in the next two years to purchase and produce appropriate literature for new readers in Bangladesh.

Goal: $2,200

About this Mission Project

Bangladesh has 3000 people per square mile but only 50% of them can read and write. Rural villagers are facing new challenges, and they need to be literate in order to understand and meet those challenges. They need information that is both practical and interesting so that they’ll want to continue reading and grow stronger in their literacy skills and in their faith.

Using old “Dick and Jane” materials in Bangladesh just doesn’t cut it. This project provides booklets on growing vegetables, raising chickens, making compost, clean water, nutrition, latrines, women’s legal rights, and other practical information necessary to improve the quality of village life.

Mission Project Specifics

This project seeks to raise $2,200 in the next two years to purchase and produce appropriate literature for new readers in Bangladesh. The purpose is to provide practical information to 7,000 families on village life skills by creating community libraries, and giving a greater knowledge of the Bible and its application. This project will be managed by Walt White, Global Consultant for IM in partnership with Symbiosis International in Bangladesh.

It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall health of village families, with an impact on children’s education in the some of the poorest districts of Bangladesh.
