The Word for the World do amazing work to translate the Bible into mother tongue languages across the globe.TWFTW in the UK is led by Barry Funnell my friend for more than 20 years who I met originally in Malawi when he was leading a team to provide the Sena people their first ever Bible in their mother tongue. Since then he's gone onto provide support to Bible translation teams across Africa and Asia. He recently launched an appeal for funds to support adult literacy in Malawi.There's a Triathlon taking place in Lusaka, Zambia on 23rd April and I'm taking part to get in shape and raise funds for the amazing work of TWFTW. My daughters Davina and Damaris are also taking part in the Triathlon.

Literacy fund

Over 64% of the population of Sub Saharan Africa is illiterate. This is far higher in the marginalised people groups that The Word for the World is translating Bibles for.
Your donation will go a long way. Each centre needs a black board, which costs on average £11. The students need a primer as well at a cost of approx £1.30.
