GENERAL OVERVIEW

According to Globalization Partners International, Africa is home to one-third of the world’s languages with more than 2,000 distinct languages spoken on the continent consisting of 54 countries. Considering the rates of poverty and illiteracy, having audio bibles is crucial to reaching the people of Africa. Davar has recorded more audio bibles in Africa than any other place, with over 100 recordings in 22 countries. With recording studios in seven different African countries, Davar intends to record 55 additional audio bibles in 2022.
