Beginning 2018, Share will have established a total of 24 AL classes in remote villages across Turkanaland. 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!
Since 1997, Share has reached and planted churches among 400,000 Turkana people within a geographical region encompassing a population of 700,000. We hope to reach the total 1M Turkana population in the shortest time possible. It will cost $30,496 to fund Adult Literacy in 2018.
