Chewa is the most widely known language of Malawi, spoken mostly in the Central and Southern Regions of that country. "It is also one of the seven official African languages of Zambia, where it is spoken mostly in the Eastern Province. It is also spoken in Mozambique, especially in the provinces of Tete and Niassa, as well as in Zimbabwe where, according to some estimates, it ranks as the third-most widely used local language, after Shona and Northern Ndebele."

Chewa, also known as Nyanja, is a language of the Bantu language family. The language is also called Chichewa and Chinyanja (spelled 'Cinyanja' in Zambia, and 'Cinianja' in Mozambique). In Malawi, the name was officially changed from Chinyanja to Chichewa in 1968 at the insistence of President Hastings Kamuzu Banda (himself of the Chewa tribe), and this is still the name most commonly used in Malawi today. In Zambia, Chewa is spoken by other people like the Ngoni and the Kunda, so a more neutral name, Chinyanja '(language) of the lake' (referring to Lake Malawi), is used instead of Chichewa.

Chewa belongs to the same language group (Guthrie Zone N) as Tumbuka and Sena. It is spoken by 12 million native speakers.

Your help is needed to translate these phrases.

Can you help? It will take an estimated six hours to layout the Who Is Jesus tract in Chichewa.

Printing cost for the first 5,000 copies will be approximately $300. From that point the reprinting should be self-sustaining. As orders are received we will use the funds to reprint as needed.

So far, we have received 1 hour of donated time and $0.00 in funds for the Chichewa language project.
