Tanzania is home to several well-known natural landmarks, including Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater, and Lake Victoria. The government prioritizes nature conservation and tourism is a crucial part of the economy. It is also one of the most linguistically diverse countries in Africa, with over 100 known spoken languages.

The Word for the World has seen great success in the translation projects in Tanzania, with 10 completed New Testaments and several projects a quarter of the way through the Old Testament!
