NIGERIA SIGN LANGUAGE BIBLE
2016 Budget: ₦100064.00 | Project Number: 000012
This project is focused on reaching out to the Deaf in Nigeria who have no access to the Word of God with the Scriptures. According to a report in www.peoplegroups.org , it was stated that the progress of the Gospel among the deaf people in Nigeria is less than 2% Evangelical. The primary religion of the people is Ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people’s ethnic identity and conversion essentially equate to cultural assimilation. As a result of the above statement, the Bible Society of Nigeria has taken it up to get involved in the production of Nigeria Sign Language Bible for the Spiritual Growth of the Deaf. This project will also sensitise Nigerians and many other West African Countries through churches, schools, and other related agencies in the country to educate their Deaf children, wards or relatives. The society must develop a positive attitudes toward them because they need proper training, gainful employment in order to be self-independent and self-reliant to be able to contribute their quota to the development of the Church of God and the nation at large.
