With so many language groups in the Central African basin now engaged in translation and language development, there is a need for more advanced, formal training of staff in the region. This would enable project workers to deepen their knowledge, and acquire new skills in their fields of specialisation.
The i-DELTA Francophone program provides academic courses at Bachelors level in various streams, such as: Media, Bible Translation, Literacy Training, and Community Scripture Engagement.
One strength of the i-DELTA program (Institut pour le Développement des Langues et de la Traduction en Afrique) is that participants are trained within a two-month cycle, which repeats over three years. This means that workers are not separated from their language program long-term, but remain largely within their assignment area, to put the skills they are learning into practice.
This project aims to raise funds for tuition for one (or more) workers from the Jam Ma group of languages (Gavar, Buwal, Mbudum) to attend i-DELTA, which begins its first year cycle in May 2021. This is an opportunity to develop the capacity and skills of local Bible translators and literacy workers in a region where there are few with formal qualifications.
