Overview

SIL Peru

Members of SIL, motivated by a love for God and man, seek to serve the minority language communities of Peru. In coordination with the Peruvian government SIL requests permission from the native communities to live among them and learn the local language. SIL then works together with members of the community to preserve and promote respect for the local language and culture by offering training in literature production, pedagogy, and translation principles, as well as partnering in other linguistic and community development projects. SIL goals include:

Who do we work with?

SIL Peru partners with the language groups, local authorities, the Peruvian government, other NGOs, and Christian churches on matters of common interest that benefit the native communities.
