Africa Ministry - Trans World Radio Canada

Africa is such a vast continent, with over 50 countries and so many cultures. How do you reach a region this diverse? It is impossible unless we use every form of media available to us. Families may have no furniture, they may live in a mud hut and have little or no formal education, but they have a radio! Since 1974, TWR has been broadcasting the Good News of Jesus Christ across Africa. We also work with national workers and indigenous leadership to provide the Church with the resources they need. We have also been involved with some infrastructure projects in Africa, and distribute programming on portable media devices. The projects we are involved within Africa are vast. See for yourself: 

  • Bible Distribution - we have been involved in distributing print and audio Bibles across Africa
  • Burundi Radio Broadcasts - we broadcast two programs in Burundi: Good News for All and Jesus is the Answer
  • Bible Stories for Children - in Kenya, we translate, produce and broadcast the stories in Swahili. In Ethiopia, we translate and produce the stories in Somali for those living in refugee camps
  • Discipleship Essentials - a resource for discipleship used in discipleship training sessions in several countries across Africa, as well as a new radio program
  • The Way of Righteousness - we are translating and distributing (by radio and portable media devices) this program across Africa in three languages: Arabic, Nubi and French
  • TWR Women of Hope - addresses women's despair and feelings of hopelessness by encouraging, equipping and engaging through radio programs and prayer groups
  • West Africa Transmitter - the second transmitter at the West Africa transmitter site, directed primarily towards Nigeria, is now broadcasting
  • Men Alive - a weekly program for men aired in South Africa, teaching men to be fathers, sons, friends, husbands and employees who conform to the image of Christ
  • Burundi Office - a new office has been purchased for TWR Burundi and renovations will begin soon
  • Kakuma Refugee Camp Radio Station - we are in the process of setting up a radio station in the heart languages of those living in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya

Your gift to projects in Africa will support the continuation of these projects.
