Gwama of Ethiopia

Introduction / History
The Kwama are a mostly rural group of people living in the highlands on both sides of the border between Sudan and Ethiopia. They are predominantly farmers. The majority are Muslim, but there are also followers of the traditional religion and these two may also be integrated in some ways. No missions, foreign or national, are working among this people group, and there is a great need for evangelism. Literacy rates are low, although many have expressed interest for learning to read in their mother tongues, as well as learning other languages for wider communication. It seems that there are two Kwama languages, both still used as first languages for all speakers in their respective groups. A need for Bible translation is likely. Many men have some proficiency in a second language, but the women are more likely not to and materials are needed and desired in their mother tongues.
