GILLBT signs MoU with Seed Company

(Tamale) – Ghana Institute of Linguistics, Literacy and Bible Translation (GILLBT) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Seed Company of the United States.
The aim is to restructure it (GILLBT) into a viable national organization, Dr Paul Opoku-Mensah, Executive Director of GILLBT, said.
He said as a result of the MoU, various structures, systems and processes to ensure that GILLBT operate as an independent national organization had been put in place.
Dr Opoku-Mensah said this when presenting a report during the 43rd Annual General Meeting of GILLBT in Tamale on Saturday to present its activities and financial statement for the year ended 30th September, 2015.
The financial statements showed that GILLBT’s total income, which comprised of grants and donations, increased to GH¢ 4,454,477 during the 2015 financial year as compared to GH¢ 2,005,411 recorded during the 2014 financial year.
GILLBT is a language development and Bible translation institution, which also implements other social intervention projects.
Dr Opoku-Mensah said the concept was to make GILLBT a wholly national organization with the necessary relevance to lead in national mother tongue development and Bible translation.
He said it was also to make GILLBT to be in position to rally all organizations with similar objectives for Bible translation and national language policy setting.
He said the MoU would help to create a sense of national ownership, vision sharing and partnership with churches, bible translation organizations and individuals.
Reverend Thomas Sayibu Imoro, Board Chairman of GILLBT, said GILLBT’s focus in the coming years would be to complete the task of Bible translation and provide continuous assessment of needs and support in the country.
Rev Imoro said work was being done to revamp the GILLBT Printing Press saying this would help improve its performance and increase revenue generation.
