It is estimated that of the 7.2 billion people alive in the world today, 3.0 billion of them live in unreached people groups with little or no access to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

According to Joshua Project, there are approximately 16,300 unique people groups in the world with about ,6500 of them considered unreached including the Safwa tribe.

The vast majority (95%) of these least reached groups exist in the 10/40 window and less than 10% of missionary work is done among these people.

Many Safwa villages have little or no effective evangelical witness. It is estimated that as many as 80 percent of the Safwa people are devout followers of African traditional religion or no religion at all.

Perhaps less than 3 percent are evangelical Christians. Alcoholism is a big problem among the Safwa, as it is among many people groups.
