"Your Language is the most precious element in life that still includes all major values of your ancestors. What does that mean for your children, and your grandchildren and their future?"
The Iyasa language spoken on the coast near Equatorial Guinea, around Campo subdivision, has recently launched its alphabet chart during a ceremony aimed at inaugurating their Literacy and Bible Translation Centre.
The language development and Bible translation work that is going on in the Iyasa community is a partnership effort between SIL and the local community. While SIL has been providing training opportunities in various aspects of language development and translation, the Iyasa community has been involved in mobilising and providing overall leadership for the work.
