Literacy

OLBTO offers various trainings to all the resource persons that are under the organization. We have many primers and some literature materials for teaching literacy in the mother tongue. This training comprises normally refresher Courses [RC] for teachers, scripture promotion training called “Ifufuk Ikpa Mbuban” for church Pastors, leaders and workers.

The programmes aim at training native speakers on how to read and write their heart language in a formal way. It is in order to help enhance the use of translated Scriptures here after the training so that there will be more impact in the language area.

On one of the church leaders training, participants were helped to identify the books of the Bible in their heart language.

Below are some of the pictures taken:

In this picture each participant identified the book of the Bible in his/her hands.
