laughingLaughter is in the heart of a child.
(Gwere 'Jonah' dedication, Uganda)
Over 99% of the Gwere people (Bagwere) live in small villages on their traditional tribal lands in eastern Uganda. The Bagwere have been disadvantaged throughout much of their recent history, leaving the group with a poor economy, a weak educational system, and a weak church filled with nominal Christians. Providing them with a writing system will improve their education, and thereby their economic opportunities. Providing them with a New Testament in their own language will enable them to correctly understand God’s truth, build themselves up in the faith and evangelise their own people.
