Equipping and training the emerging Afghan church
Pamir Productions develops digital media in the languages of Afghanistan. Here are just some of the activities that our Digital Media department undertakes:
"He got our number from Facebook... He asked if there is a site he can read the Bible in Dari? I was able to send him an SMS with our Dari Bible web address. He thanked us." (discipleship worker)
We publish websites in Afghan languages (predominently Dari and Pashto). Some represent our own ministries and others represent partnerships. Examples:
We hope that the Afghan Bibles website will form the basis of a new Afghan Bible Association. The site also includes text-audio sychronisation for people who are partially-literate when viewing and listening to the Gospel of Matthew.
On the TV sites, we are working to make TV channel streams from our saved programmes. We publish our TV programmes and other materials onto YouTube.
We produce phone apps to make God's word accessible to the huge number of people in Afghanistan who now own a mobile phone. Our scripture apps even work on many non-smartphones.

Use of Facebook and other networks is growing in Afghanistan. We have a number of Facebook pages. Every day we post, comment and supply media to a growing online audience.
We aim to make all possible video, audio, text and apps available on SD cards. Our partners and co-workers carry these cards, and we can supply these through the Resource Centre to people in the diaspora.
Our team provides IT support for partners and co-workers in a number of organisations. We work together to fulfil the great commission.
