During 2010, the Into Africa Project placed $15,000 worth of Bibles (approximately 1,500 copies) into the hands of key church leaders. These Bibles are primarily used for the following purposes:
- To establish reading groups in which members read to their non-literate neighbors
- By pastors, elders and Sunday School leaders
- To conduct Bible studies
