In the Dominican Republic, the Bible is one of the assigned textbooks in schools. Because of this, pupils want to have their own Bible, but for many this is not possible due to the levels of poverty.
Within the school environment, young people can often lose their values or develop bad attitudes or behaviour. Many can end up in trouble. The Society believes that these children and teenagers will have the opportunity of a better future if they can read the life-changing Word of God for themselves.
