SIL partner launches new website

SIL LEAD was created to help communities bridge the gap between the languages they speak and opportunities to improve their quality of life. We believe that the language a community speaks is a valuable asset for their future as well as an integral part of their identity and intangible cultural heritage.

-Paul Frank, Executive Director of SIL LEAD
