Shania-Lee, a 13-year from KZN, South Africa, has been passionate for the Lord since a young age. Young children's access to the Bible and a relationship with Jesus lay close to her heart.
CLF (Christian Literature Fund) read about her project to collect Bibles in order to bless children and orphans and seeing that it fully aligned with CLF's "One million Bibles for one million children" project, Shania-Lee was officially appointed as CLF's Bible project ambassador in September 2018.
Shania-Lee and their community have been raising funds for the Bible project, in order to bless children with their very own Storybook Bible, in their own language. Through CLF donors and the KZN community and churches, CLF has been able to send Shania-Lee children's Bibles to hand out at schools, orphanages, farm schools and many others.
The need is however ongoing and every day more requests from Children's Homes, Orphanages, community schools and many others are received for children's Bibles.
Help Shania-Lee and the CLF Bible project give hope to children, sharing the love of Jesus with a Bible of their own!
CLF's Bible project was born from the dream to teach children about the love of Jesus in their own language. CLF believes it is important to not only teach children the contents of the Bible, but help them to appropriate it to their lives and their interactions with other children. They envisage children that will know how to live their faith practically, in whose lives biblical values will be established and who will be morally equipped as the leaders of tomorrow. Apart from this, children are encouraged to read in their own language with that establishing a reading culture from a young age. Since the start of the Bible project in August 2010 more than 91 000 Bibles have been distributed in 7 languages at the end of December 2018.
