SIL is honoured, as a leader in the global community of language development organisations, by the support of many in Uganda who value its contributions to their people.



"Let's keep going...

"I am grateful to God for the Lugungu language development journey of Bible translation, dictionary making, and other work. Thank you to SIL and all partners. This partnership is setting a foundation for future efforts and achievements. It is also giving others momentum, encouragement, and vision. Let's keep going..."

— Charles Batambuze
Chairman, Uganda Multilingual Education Network


"I challenge our leaders...

“Those who don’t want people to speak their dialects — they kill our heritage. I congratulate the Gwere people on the launch of the New Testament in their language, and also the Gwere dictionary. I challenge our community leaders... and cultural institutions to encourage children to learn to read and write in their languages."

— Yoweri Museveni
President of Uganda
(from his speech given in Budaka on the occasion of the Gwere New Testament launch, 29 July, 2017)
