50-70% of the population of Mozambique are illiterate or oral learners.

Over One Billion Need To Hear

Officially, there are about 776 million people in the world who lack basic reading and writing skills, according to UNESCO, the international organization tasked with measuring global literacy. CCO has worked for decades with non-literates, and often overlooked minority groups who are isolated by language and culture. Imagine if you could not read a Bible. By our estimation, there are over 1 billion people in the world who cannot read the Bible in their heart language. These are the men, women, parents, grandparents and children who need the spoken Word.

The answer to this problem is the audio Bible-- A solar powered Mp3 player containing audio recordings in the languages of illiterate people groups. Through audio Bibles listener's lives have been changed. The Words of Christ continue to change lives! Families have been reconciled, forgiveness encouraged, alcoholics have been made sober and the sick healed and delivered by the hearing of Christ's words.

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
— Romans 10:17

Come on a trip to Mozambique and be a part of delivering God's Word

to those in need through the audio Bible.


Illiteracy and Non-Literacy

You will hear non-readers placed into two categories, the illiterate and the non-literate. The illiterate are non-reading individuals who live in literate societies. These are the people affected by circumstances such as learning disorders and dyslexia, lack of access to education, and visual impairments.  Most of Mozambique's population falls into this category.

In the second category, the non-literate are people who live in societies without any readers at all. There are countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and East Asia where the literacy rate is far below the global average. Many people living in these regions have not learned to ready due to poor access to school, decades of civil war, and little to no written resources in there language. These non-readers whom are also found in Mozambique need to hear the spoken Word rather than be expected to read it.
