Christian Literature Fund (CLF) was founded in 1957 by Dr Abraham Dekker and a group of faithful missionaries to develop and distribute free Christian material amongst the different language and culture groups of South Africa. What started from humble beginnings and a handful of free Christian pamphlets (then known as tracts) CLF has grown, and over the years, many testimonies have proven that peoples' lives have been changed by this.
It has remained CLF's mission to develop and distribute Christian material that is easy to read and addresses life’s most important social issues. Our colourful pamphlets address relevant, topical themes based on scripture and are available free of charge.
Apart from the variety of Christian pamphlets, there is also a wide selection of Christian books with a missionary focus, books to equip churches and others to help people find their faith and grow spiritually.
In 2010 CLF launched the "One million Bibles for one million children-project". This 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. We 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 and with that establishing a reading culture from a young age. Since inception until 31 December 2018, CLF has blessed 91 549 children with a children's Bible in their own language.
