The Bible Society of Nigeria has remained committed to making the Word of God available in different Nigerian Languages and for different categories of people, including the prisoners, the blind, the deaf and other less privileged Nigerians. It costs a minimum of ₦120 million to complete a Bible translation project if achieved in eight years.
We have translated the Bible into 27 out of the over 500 languages in Nigeria and we are currently working on 10 different translation projects. This has made the Word of God available to over 13 million people in those languages and their lives are being transformed.
We desire to build a Bible House between Onipanu and Ojota in Lagos. Our corporate office in Apapa, built in 1919 by The Canadian Bible Society for The British & Foreign Bible Society which we inherited in 1966 is no longer able to accommodate our increasing staff and operations.
To achieve this, we designed project WABFOG ( Write and Build for Our God) where the entire Bible verses are to be handwritten by individuals, churches and corporate organisations who desire to support the building project. To write a Bible verse as an individual, you donate ₦10,000 to belong to
the bronze category; ₦25,000 for the silver category; ₦50,000 for the gold
category and ₦150,000 for the platinum category. Under the corporate class, the
bronze is ₦100,000, silver ₦250,000, gold ₦500,000 and ₦1,000,000 for platinum.
Your donation will help to execute the project and the verse you will write
will be included in the handwritten Bible to be published. Your name, church or
organization will appear in the compendium of donors to be kept in the
