Africa has a wide range of climate zones, ethnicity, and topography. Home to about 15% of the world's population, it's estimated there are over 1,000 languages spoken in Africa making it the most multilingual continent on earth. Due to a variety of factors, including corruption and military conflict, Africa remains the world's poorest and most underdeveloped continent. The need for the Gospel is great, but so are the challenges presented by the geographical, linguistic, social, and technological realities of Africa.
TWR Canada, in partnership with TWR Africa, supports ministry work in Africa including sending skilled missionaries, building and maintaining transmitters and stations that broadcast hope throughout Africa, and providing leadership training resources. TWR Canada's focus is on the following ministries:
East, Central, and South Africa - English
The Christian church in Africa is growing, and young pastors and lay church
leaders need a sound understanding of biblical leadership principles in order to be effective. Without training, these young leaders are negatively influenced by unbiblical tribal and cultural
values. As congregations grow and attract the educated and professional classes, pastors need formal biblical
training but most lack the opportunity and finances to do so. Tools For Wise Leadership answers this need by teaching the leadership principles of Christ.
Burundi - KiRundi languageGood News for All & Jesus is the Answer
Burundi continues to struggle after 40 years of civil war resulted in more than 200,000 deaths. There is a deep need and yearning for healing and restoration. The people need to see the value of life outside of the conflict. They need to hear of the peace and hope that can only come through Jesus Christ. Each program meets specific spiritual and social needs of listeners across Burundi.
MozambiqueWords of Hope - Lomwe language
It's been impossible for missionaries to bring the Gospel to many people groups in Mozambique due to a 20-year civil war resulting in over 900,000 deaths and another 5 million displaced peoples. But radio recognizes no political or social barriers, and often can reach remote geographic locations missionaries can't. The Makhuwa people need to hear of hope, renewal and restoration that only comes through Jesus Christ. The Lomwe people live in remote regions missionaries have been unable to reach.
