This year we have been able to publish the very first publication in the Mbugwe language.

Our two Mbugwe translators have been busy drafting and checking a calendar for 2014. It is intentionally very simple, using a key letter, a key word and a related culturally appropriate illustration. The aim is to raise awareness of the project, and to encourage people to talk about their language and in this way to increase their understanding of how their language works and how it can be written.
