Project Details

The Malawi team continues to partner with contacts from key organisations and local Yawo people to revise a Bible translation for the Yawo of Malawi. The aim is to ensure there is a Ciyawo translation of the Bible that holds firm to the Word of God and is written using language and terminology the rural Yawo of Malawi can understand. The team is reviewing Bible passages and have so far completed 50 books, meaning they have finished phase three of the project! In May 2019 they commence phase four of the project and are looking to revise the final 16 books.

This project is a long-term one with a dedicated team. It is scheduled to run until mid-2020 to ensure the whole translation has been reviewed and updated so that the Word of God is accessible to the Yawo of Malawi. It is a significant and incredibly exciting task. We thank you so much for your partnership so far. Please note, costs may change due to exchange rate fluctuations.

Gifts to this project are NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Your ongoing partnership with this project assists the team in translating the Bible into vernacular that is understandable to the majority of Yawo people in Malawi. This an important part of Yawo communities being able to hear and read the Word of God in their heart language.
