Rwandan Sign Language

Producing chronological Bible stories

Rwandan Sign Language

Project Description

“The Deaf will no longer need to wait for others to explain or interpret Scripture for them,” a project adviser said. “They’ll be able to watch it often.” 

We’re working in partnership with a local team to make Scripture available for the first time in Rwandan Sign Language!

The Deaf church in Rwanda is confident that Scripture in Rwandan Sign Language will help Deaf people better understand the Bible. It will also provide a defense for those vulnerable to false teaching. 

In this three-year project, the team will translate 32 chronological Bible stories — spanning Old and New Testament content from Creation to Pentecost.

Produced in video format, the sign language narratives will be available through the Deaf Bible App, on SD cards and DVDs, and via the website of the Rwandan Sign Language Bible Translation Society.

Your prayers and gifts will help make the first Scripture available for the Deaf in Rwanda — in a language and form they clearly understand!


Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
