Tribal groups are crying out for the Scriptures
There are 840 indigenous languages spoken in Papua New Guinea – that’s 12% of the world’s languages in just one country. Many of these tribal groups are desperate for God’s Word to be translated into a language that they will understand.

Local groups have approached the Bible Society for assistance and guidance to carry out translation work.

With your help, we are funding translation projects for eight languages and providing support to all those who are involved in different aspects of the process through training, finance and provision of equipment.
