In an effort to address the illiteracy issue among Turkana women, Bible Society of Kenya will hold a golf tournament on August 31st 2018 at the Royal Nairobi Golf Club from 12:00 noon.

Turkana is the second largest county by land mass in Kenya and is considered one of the poorest with 88% of the people living below the poverty line compared with 45% nationally. Illiteracy levels are high with only half of the school going children being enrolled nationally below the national average of 95% report, 2018 by Charity Save the Children. The adult literacy rate in the county is at 20%.

We welcome all our members, partners, friends and well wishers to join us in this noble course of availing literacy skills to our Turkana sisters.
