A Senegal ministry sees a tribal alphabet confirmed.

By September 22, 2004

Senegal (MNN)–Literacy officials in Senegal wanted to streamline the alphabets used by the Budik people group.

The government wanted to introduce new characters into one alphabet. New Tribes teams were concerned that meant tribe members would have to re-learn how to read, impeding further Bible study.

The proposed changes also meant revisions in nearly all of the New Tribes’ Bible teaching material. In the end, the government decided to make minor changes that allowed Budiks who speak a different dialect to use the same material.
