Many Zedsee* are subsistence farmers in rural areas, but large numbers of young people move to towns and cities for education and work. They are deeply animistic with a strong belief in spirits. There has been Western missionary activity in the past, but Christianity was most recently re-introduced around 2000. Only about 1.2% of the population are Christians. Many face pressure from family and the community to join in traditional religious rituals.


The people communicate with one another mainly in the Zedsee language. This project aims to produce evangelistic materials as well as Scripture and worship songs.
