Sponsor a College
By providing a college with at least 50 books a year, your church will support a college to reduce poverty, increase health awareness and improve literacy levels.
Churches in the Global South play a central role in supporting development but many seminaries and Christian colleges struggle to obtain relevant theological texts to train future leaders. Our Overseas Book Service (OBS) provides high quality, relevant books to colleges and churches that need them. This enables church leaders to lead communities in worship and combat issues such as famine, conflict, HIV and Aids. OBS has been running for more than 20 years but, every year, we receive more requests than we have books. We are looking to extend our reach, so that more communities can reach their full potential.
Can you and your church help?
Your church can make a difference by sponsoring a college in the Global South. In Uganda, it costs around 140,000 Ugandan shillings (£29) for 1 book. This can buy a week’s worth of groceries for a family.
By donating £290 a year, your church will support a whole college with 50 books a year to train future church leaders and support the wider community.
