HELP BRING THE BIBLE TO

women

THE CAUSE

Globally, women and girls make up half the world’s population. Yet, around the world women and girls are over-represented in statistics relating to poverty, lack of access to education, gender-based violence, and inequality in the workforce.

The Bible Societies of India, Pakistan, and northern Israel are working to change the lives of women by bringing them fresh Hope from the Bible, empowering them with new skills, and lifting them up out of oppression.

They are working to address Bible Poverty, and to encourage Bible Engagement and Bible Literacy among oppressed women.

THE IMPACT

By making a gift today, here is the impact you will be having:

  • INDIA: you will provide Bible engagement workshops to widows and suffering women.
  • PAKISTAN: you will help to deliver literacy programmes to illiterate Christian women.
  • NORTHERN ISRAEL: you will be establishing audio Bible listening groups and helping to show the Jesus film.

Through its ‘Magdalena: Empowering Women and Families through Scripture Engagement’ project, the Arab Israeli Bible Society is providing Scripture resources and organising annual community events for women. 

The workshops cover a range of issues, including communication, anger, forgiveness, reconciliation, family unity, and a parent’s responsibility to pass their faith on to their children. Bible Society aims to reach 4,000 women this year.

“The Arab Israeli Bible Society is dealing with important issues in our daily lives and faith that we, as women, need to deal with. We would like you to help us and to use your programmes to benefit all the women who are coming to the club,” said the Director of the Em Nizar club for women from the Greek Orthodox Church in Nazareth.
