In line with digital trends, the Ceylon Bible Society (CBS) are producing an E-Bible for children. This will assist children in Sri Lanka to learn God’s word, via digital platforms. This project will reach children in Sri Lanka who spend a lot of time online and will encourage people of faith.
Children are used to reading on tablets, laptops and desktop computers for their hobbies, entertainment and education. There is a growing demand for tools and formats — electronic access — to the Scriptures on the most common platforms (mobile, the web). Online users have a need for interaction with other similar minded people, which can in turn grow into real (‘offline’) community building.
With this project, CBS is integrating digital technology into their mission, helping children engage with the Scriptures using electronic media.
- Sri Lanka’s internet penetration rate stood at 52.6 percent of the total population at the start of 2022.
- Internet users in Sri Lanka increased by 528,000 (+4.9 percent) between 2021 and 2022
If the appeal is oversubscribed or the project changes due to unforeseen reasons, we will reallocate remaining funds to similar projects.
