WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need to raise R93,000 to translate primary school Bible Stories into African languages!
In South Africa, very few books are developed for children in their mother-tongue language, and even fewer books are guided by Biblical principles of truth, justice, and forgiveness. Bible stories written for South African children will improve literacy and will assist with the discipleship of children.
Each book also contains a practical story rooted in the local South African context, which is directly related to the principles taught in the selected Bible story.
We have already raised R612,000 to develop a series of 20 stories in Sepedi and English. We seek further funding to translate these books into other South African languages (including Afrikaans!)
If 930 of our followers donate R100 each, we can translate these books into isiXhosa, isiZulu, Venda or any of the other SA languages. Please help our children learn how to read, and to learn about how to live wholesome lives!
