In Togo la Bibbia è disponibile in due nuove lingue

Togo, officially the Togolese Republic, is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. Togo is a tiny slip of land (a width of less than 115 km from east to west), with a population of approximately 8 million. Thirty-nine distinct languages are spoken in Togo, although its official language is French. The two most widely spoken indigenous languages — Ewe and Kabiye — are ‘national languages’ and are used in formal education and in the media. Bible Society is working in Togo to help non-literate people – predominately women – in poor rural areas of Togo to learn to read and write, using the Scriptures, teaching in four indigenous languages. Recently father Jean Prosper Agbagnon SVD presented to Mgr Moise Messan TOUHO, Bishop of Atakpame, two new translations of the Bible into local languages: the Old and New Testaments in Ewe with the Deuterocanonical books, and the New Testament in Ikposo
