Regional 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 200 recordings in 36 countries. With recording studios in seven different African countries, Davar is committed to continuing to provide for oral learners in Africa for many years.
