About two-thirds of people in our world don’t read – instead, they learn by listening. In the Third World, the percentage is even higher – if you hand people a Bible or a piece of paper with basic health and hygiene information on it, they are unable to
benefit from that gift.
T4’s GoTeam is a critical element of T4 Global’s mission to reach these oral learners.The GoTeam is a group of volunteers of all ages who will participate in endurance events to raise awareness and funds to help T4 Global meet the needs of these unreached people.
In oral cultures, people learn not from reading but from methods used via their oral tradition throughout the generations. The people of T4 Global are passionate about helping people in these cultures learn information regardless of their ability to read, via recordings in their own language on MP3 players. This information can be from the Bible, but also encompasses community development information about HIV/AIDS prevention/treatment, clean water/sanitation, basic health and hygiene, etc.
