Africa Speaks’ mission is to help establish a flourishing Christian publishing industry in Africa.

Africa Speaks sprouted in 2018 as an informal network of publishing professionals from around the globe united in a common goal: to establish a viable and flourishing Christian publishing industry in Africa and grow into a thriving professional network.



Our Africa Speaks Publishing Discipleship Program pairs eligible practitioners, as disciples, from the African Christian community with experienced professional mentors to encourage entrepreneurship, best industry practices and facilitate the communication of their aspirations, ideas and works to the wider community.

The program provides a range of training, collaboration and partnership programs to help these promising disciples achieve the potential we know they are capable of. Our mentors run group training sessions and provide personalised feedback to participants so they can build their capacity and develop their expertise in publishing industry.
