Off to School – Weekly Inspiring Image

Isn’t he beautiful? Off to school in the morning sun along the busy city streets, school books a-ready. It’s Monday morning and in a few hours Bangladeshi children will walk themselves to school, just like this young boy. Bangladesh is home to 49 different language communities, but public education is only given in the national language – Bangla. As a result, literacy rates across the country are a low 40 percent. Wycliffe’s partners are working with the government and local agencies to empower Bangladeshis committed to language development and literacy opportunities for their nation. If you have time read this inspiring story about a small church in Bangladesh. Blessings for your week ahead.
