About us

The Malagasy Bible Society (MBS) is a collaborative platform that brings together all Christian organizations in order to spread the Holy Scripture in Madagascar. Thus, we support churches and missionaries by providing biblical materials.

On March 19th 1830, the New Testament was printed in Madagascar. Five years after that, on June 21st 1835, the very first complete Malagasy Bible was printed. Madagascar is one of the first countries in Africa to have a complete version of the Bible in its mother tongue. Four revisions were made from that date up to the creation of the Malagasy Bible Society (MBS). 130 years after the first print of the full Malagasy Bible, the MBS was officially created. Then, in April 1972, the MBS was accepted as an official member of the United Bible Societies (UBS).
