Adult Literacy (SIAL):
Share Int. continues to work toward reducing illiteracy in Turkanaland through the Adult Literacy (SIAL) program, whose primary purpose is to have all Turkana people read the Bible for themselves. The joy of seeing Turkana adults in remote villages read and write is almost unspeakable!
Literacy classes have been provided Monday through Friday, at least two hours each day, in many villages since 2001. SIAL teachers report that many students have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior through reading of Scriptures. As a result, pronounced spiritual growth and maturity continues to be evidenced among the Share Int.-planted churches. Those that have benefited from the program the past several years are now taking leadership roles in discipleship groups during the week.
These leaders are reading and teaching the Bible in their own language, in their own villages! Many have since been mainstreamed into government-sanctioned schools; some have graduated and obtained leadership roles in their communities, including school management committees and small businesses. Others have been appointed to church-planting teams to help pastors and missionaries with surveying and identifying the unreached villages 20-30km from their mother churches. Others are engaging in survival skills by learning how to do small businesses such as selling groceries and charcoal in the villages.
Share International Adult Literacy (SIAL) is impacting growth of the indigenous Church in Turkanaland. There were 550 students in the SIAL Program by end of 2015! Well over 100 have graduated from various K-12 SIAL levels in the villages where SIAL classes are provided.
