Since 2012 our Bible Society is engaged in trauma healing work. This is done in association with the TRAUMA HEALING NETWORK, a registered welfare organization in Namibia.
The aim is to bring the Bible’s message of hope and healing to traumatized people in Namibia, and to teach them resilience skills in order to deal with their trauma more effectively. By utilizing both psychological and spiritual principles, participants are empowered so that they do not give up in the face of difficulties.
The Trauma Healing Network reaches out to both adults and children, all over Namibia, by conducting Healing Retreats and offering training to facilitators.

BIBLE STORY TELLING
We live in a world of growing Bible illiteracy and Bible poverty. There are various reasons for this, but among other is that children are not growing up with Bible Stories anymore. On the long run the impact of the Bible in the youth – the adults of tomorrow – is lost.
Our Bible Story Telling Project goes together with the Children’s Bible Translation and aims to introduce Bible Stories to both children and the adults working with them – parents, teachers, Sunday School teachers or care takers.
The project consists of practical and creative workshops where both theory and practice are shared so that attendees can apply what they have learned immediately. We conduct workshops all over Namibia.
You can contribute by clicking the SPONSOR-A-WORKSHOP button.
Contributions in this regard make it possible for us to take Bible Story Telling workshops also to remote areas in Namibia.
