Recent research (Synovate, 2008) indicated that many people in the Arab World would purchase more books if they were more affordable, and if they had access to a wider selection of books that are of interest to them.  Most Arabic language books are sold in bookstores operated by the publisher. 

Research by Kotobarabia (2005) indicates that 80% of books are distributed within 5 kilometers of the publishing house.  This means that most readers have access to a very limited number of titles in Arabic.

The mission of Dar Manhal Al Hayat (DMAH) is to resource the Arab World with Christian and educational resources in the Arabic language; striving to make them both accessible and affordable to the larger public.
