Invest in the Eastern Apurimac Quechua!

Wycliffe Canada Featured Project

You can help advance Bible translation and Scripture use in Peru through the work of AIDIA, a local organization, serving the Eastern Apurímac Quechua people (featured in this issue of Word Alive). Here are the details of this specific project which Wycliffe Canada is sponsoring with other partners. 

Project Name: Eastern Apurímac Quechua (AIDIA)

Location: South-central Peru, South America

Language Group: Eastern Apurímac Quechua

Project Overview: Wycliffe Canada partners with a local Peruvian organization, the “Interdenominational Association for the Holistic Development of Apurímac” (whose Spanish name is shortened using the acronym AIDIA), to translate the entire Bible into Eastern Apurímac Quechua. At the same time, AIDIA promotes its use in Quechua-speaking churches and communities by advancing literacy, developing church leadership, producing audio/video Scriptural materials, and encouraging children’s Sunday school and camps. These activities, carried out while the translation of the Bible is completed, ensure that churches and communities will be well-prepared to receive and use the Bible when it is ready.

Timeline: 2012-2022

Project Funding Needed Annually: $120,000
