Newsletter 2021

The year has almost come to an end. As an organization we have much to be grateful for. Although the COVID Pandemic is still affecting the whole world, God has graciously kept and sustained us. At the end of this year, we want to share with you how your partnership with LDP has made a great impact in the lives of children in Dagbon, Ghana.

Your kindness and generosity have been able to reach over 3,000 children. These children have learned to read and gotten access to many new books through the Library Boxes Project. Almost half of them have been introduced to the Word of God through the Bible Literacy Classes and received their own copy of the newly published Children’s Bible. Without your help, these children would never have had the opportunity to learn to read, have access to books, or read the Bible in the language of their hearts.

“This is a marvellous programme. This is the solution to the very challenge we have in our schools, which is the inability of children to read.” (Director Ghana Education Service)

Through your partnership, over 100 professional teachers and volunteers have received training in reading instruction. They have been taken through all what it takes to become good teachers. Most of them feel encouraged and motivated to make sure that the children entrusted to them become good readers.

Summary Activities 2021: 

  • Participation: 3,000 children
  • Trained: 90 teachers and volunteers & 20 community advocacy groups
  • Worked in 48 churches and 40 schools
  • Produced 31 new book titles
  • Distributed 40 Library Boxes and 1,200 Children’s Bibles 

Through your partnership small village churches have been blessed by children who can read from the Bible during church service and Bible studies.

Children have become sharers of the Good News by reading the Bible stories and showing the beautiful pictures to their friends and family members. 

“I was in tears when I realised what this workshop is meant for. If it was not for this initiative, who would have made us to write our precious stories down for the future generation to read” (local writer)

Through your partnership, LDP together with a group of local writers and illustrators were able to produce 31 new children’s books. Over 10,000 copies of these books have been distributed to 40 schools through library boxes. In most schools there are no books at all. The library boxes have been received with great excitement and joy by both the children and their teachers.

The project encouraged the learning of Dagbani and resulted in Improved reading of English. It is helpful for both teachers and pupils” (Headmaster Basic School)

On behalf of the children, their parents, the schools, the teachers, the churches and LDP staff, we want to express our profound gratitude for your support over the past year.

We pray that this Christmas Season your hearts may be filled with happiness and joy because of the birth of Emmanuel.

Mr. Elihu Wumbee
