The Bible Women program, an initiative of United Methodist Women, draws on the historical design and concept of bringing leadership training and development to today’s marginalized in remote and urban areas.
Through a participatory methodology, indigenous and other women work with today’s Bible Women trainers to set a course of study in areas that focus on:
- Bible Study
- Economic Development
- Human/Women’s Rights
All courses are very basic in design and provide the beginning steps in moving away from marginalization.
In connection with Laubach Literacy International, manuals are designed for the non-Biblical training pieces and translated into local languages. Someone from the region with a clear understanding of culture and customs assists with the design of illustrations that play a key role in each manual used for training.
