SHARE International Adult Literacy classes began in 2001 with 2 classes. At the end of that year, 23 students graduated. Today there are 30 Adult Literacy classes across Turkanaland taught by SHARE’s Adult Literacy teachers. To date 780 students have graduated from the program, and nearly 2,000 students are enrolled. No students graduated in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. Attendance fluctuates as students migrate with their flocks to find food and water. Listen to Vivian’s testimony below. She is an Adult Literacy Champion through whom God is working to bring others to Christ.

The SHARE staff is in the process of finalizing a comprehensive curriculum to be used at the Sending Centers and registration of children and youth. They are also obtaining all the necessary paperwork from the Turkana Government to secure the land donated to SHARE by village elders in Lopusiki and Kangipusia villages where the first two Sending Centers will be built. SHARE will monitor and evaluate operation of the first two centers for a period of 4 months to ensure all is running as planned before proceeding with construction of the other 12 centers.

TURKANALAND, TOPOSALAND, & NEXT-GEN INITIATIVE
We at SHARE thank you for allowing the Lord to use you through your prayers and/or financial support for this ministry in 2021. Together, let’s eagerly anticipate witnessing God do even greater things in 2022 in Turkanaland, Toposaland, and through the Next-Gen Initiative. We are confident He will as we continue to stay focused on the very purpose for which He sent His Son – “to save sinners” (1 Tim. 1:15). With our unwavering commitment to see that happen all-the-more, we invite you to join with us in raising the remaining budget of KShs.4,425,000/$44,250 for the 1st Quarter of 2022.
We also request you to consider sponsoring one or more of our Motivators that are in need of support at $2,400/KShs.240,000 per year (or $200/KShs.20,000 per month). You can sign up to support one here.
Thank you SO MUCH for your prayers and support!
