Bible Society of Zimbabwe

Bible Society of Zimbabwe

The Bible Society of Rhodesia was formed in 1965 after Rhodesia declared Unilateral Independence.

Its mission is “To afford every Zimbabwean the opportunity to access the word of God in their preferred language through translation, production and distribution.” Over the years, the society has published bibles in a number of native languages including Ndau, Ndebele (Ibhayibhili Eligcwele), Tonga and Shona (Bhaibheri).

In 1980 the name was changed to the Bible Society of Zimbabwe. In 1995, the Bible Society of Zimbabwe became a fully-fledged member of the United Bible Societies.
