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 157 recordings in 32 countries. With recording studios in seven different African countries, we intend to record an additional 54 audio bibles in Africa in 2023.
