Share has established a total of 30 AL classes in remote villages across Turkanaland, with a total of 917 students attending functional classes on a weekly basis. Sessions are provided Monday through Friday – at least 3 hours each day – primarily to shepherd boys and girls. Many students receive Christ as Savior through reading of the Bible with the help of their teachers. Pronounced spiritual growth and maturity continues to be evidenced among Share-planted churches as a result. Those that have benefited from the program since its inception in 2001 are now taking leadership roles in their churches. They are reading and teaching the Bible in their own language to their own people!
