Lent 6: Education

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's Sake

In Southern Asia, nearly 3 out of 5 women cannot read or write. A third of Indian girls do not finish primary school. An estimated half of all women in Africa and in the Arab region are still illiterate.

Wondering what this is all about? Read my post explaining why and how I’m commemorating Lent this year.

  1. wow, that’s a really neat goal for Lent. It’s also a really terrifying statistic. Working in a preschool where kids are reading at three and four, it astounds me that adults all over the world are not getting the time and resources to pick up such a vital skill. Ugh. :O/

What do you think? I'd love to know.
