The Africa eBook Project…

In Cameroon, Africa, books are scarce–especially the good ones. Which means few Catholics have access to quality spiritual reading. Fr. Linus, who is studying at one of the Cameroon seminaries, explains:

“One of the key problems the Church in Cameroon is facing, as in many parts of Africa, is that Christians do not read. And if they do, it’s very thin. Most know very little about the Catholic faith and the situation is worst among the young people.”

But what if we could change that, patricularly in the seminaries? What if we could provide good Catholic books to every future-priest in the country? Working with the seminarians themselves, we’ve decided the best solution is to go digital. So we’re providing one CD for each seminarian in Cameroon, loaded with Catholic content that is accessible wherever he goes, regardless of the computer he’s using or whether it has Internet.

For as little as $2 a CD you can help a seminarian in his Catholic education. Click to contribute and find out more.

    I really, really hope that the books this project gives them are in French – it is a former French colony, I don’t think there are many English-speakers there.

       There are, there is an English-speaking part and a French-speaking part.

      James, I asked Brandon personally about this since it was a very good question. He said these seminarians are English speaking and quite a few know Latin as well.

    Hi Kat.
