MissionAssist produces a wide range of adult literacy booklets in four widely used languages: English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. They cover a range of subjects from health and hygiene to crafts, farming and practical issues like simple construction techniques. 

Books in English can be downloaded directly from this website, using the links on the pictures below; most books are available in the other languages and MissionAssist is currently revising the titles which are not yet translated into the other languages and uploading them as they become available.

If desired, MissionAssist can also supply them, free of charge, as MS Word files or in other ways (such as the use of CDs, DVDs or USB sticks). MissionAssist also accepts requests for producing specific booklets if nothing in the existing range meets your needs.

These are Shell Book titles in English relating to agriculture and farming.
