More than 2,100 languages are spoken in Africa. Biblica has completed 25 major Bible translations in Africa with the potential to reach 200 million people.
Biblica provides the Bible in local African languages to new Christians, church leaders, children, and those who have yet to encounter Jesus Christ.

Bible & Church Engagement
The Church is growing rapidly in Africa. Pastors are often self-taught blending superstition and traditional religions. Biblica's Equipping Leaders program provides a solid grounding through basic biblical training for impoverished African church leaders.
Churches in Africa are excited about the opportunity to study God’s Word together through Community Bible Experience.
African prisons are severely overcrowded, dirty, brutal and lacking in adequate food and health care, they resemble death camps. Partnering with local churches and ministries, Biblica is reaching these people with the hope of the Bible. Biblica also reaches prisoners in Zimbabwe with Hope for Prisoners booklets.
Biblica is driven to reach this region with the Bible. From teenagers choosing abstinence through encountering God's Word in the Reach4Life program, to pastors trained to preach Scripture with authority, Biblica's work in Africa is transforming a continent.
