Rahab Balangawi started the adult literacy project in 2020 when she noticed that some of the people attending her local church didn’t participate in Bible reading and study.
The program has had a great impact in the community, teaching participants how to read, write, count, multiply and divide.
The program is designed for people who missed out on crucial skills in childhood required to bridge the gap from informal to formal education.
A baptism is being celebrated in a Solomon Islands village where there was previously just one Seventh-day Adventist.
Adventist schools in Sydney have achieved another year of above-average improvements in literacy and numeracy.
A total of 54 participants completed the Level 1 adult literacy training course, with one young family walking four days to attend.
More than 350 children who previously could not read or write are attending the schools daily.
