Welcome to OneBook
Of the 6,900 languages spoken in the world, one-third have NO WRITTEN ALPHABET. Spoken by 340 million people—they are the poorest of the poor. Ignored and in the cracks.
We help provide the ABC’s – Alphabets, Bible translation and literacy, leading to Community development. We partner with national organizations in 13 countries, doing literacy and Bible translation in 73 languages, impacting over 25 million people. The Bible in the mother tongue, hand in hand with literacy, is the key to personal and cultural transformation. We believe they’ve waited long enough to hear God speak in their own language!
ToussianA new door of possibility is opening for the remote Toussian community. A committed team is working hard to translate God’s Word into their mother tongue.
Jola FelupeApproximately 26,000 people speak Jola-Felupe, but few of them can read or write in any language. With your support, the team will provide the means and skills urgently needed to improve lives.
AringaAfter three decades of upheaval, suffering and war, the Aringa people of Uganda are finding healing. And you can give them the priceless gift of literacy that brings knowledge, dignity, and the opportunity to improve their lives.
