Alok and the Education Development Project
There’s a three-fold thrust to this project:
30 young men each day take bags of Bibles, New Testaments and Bible selections, DVDs, and general health booklets to sell in the bazaars, bus stands and train stations. The prices are low but the books not free - people choose to buy what they want and learn from what they read.
Each year approximately 600,000 items are sold!
Secondly, regular team seminars provide rest and teaching and spiritual growth. Each one is also enabled to pursue their general education through to degree level.
Thirdly, by selling these books, the young men support their families. Most of the books come from the Bangladesh Bible Society.
