Basnami Translation – Cameroon
WYCLIFFE FIELD PROJECTS
74.3% of $7,350 at 05-Jun-2023
Speakers of the Basnami* language of northern Cameroon may get by with their limited French in school and Fulfude in the marketplace, but Basnami is the language that speaks to their hearts. This ongoing project supports translation and literacy efforts.
Funds for this project will go towards purchasing literacy materials, covering office expenses, and paying part of the salaries of four local translators and one literacy worker, so that more life-giving Scripture will be made available to the Basnami people.

Latest Updates from Basnami Translation – Cameroon
31 January 2016
Since its publication in March 2015, the Gospel of Luke in Basnami* has been used in almost all the local churches and many home Bible study groups. And the impact of having Scripture in their mother tongue is very clear, as people begin to understand the meaning of God’s Word for themselves.
The team’s aim for 2016 is to finish Acts, draft Matthew, and expand their 11 literacy classes currently operating in the community.
30 January 2017
Both the local community and churches are supportive of the translation and literacy efforts. The publishing of Luke in March 2015 has been well received.
