The Balondo Language Vocabulary Book was produced by Aja Oro to enable the Balondo-bakonja learn how to speak, read and write their own language because he realized that learning it would greatly keep intact by strengthening the psychological structures that literally unite them as members of the same community, especially as European colonial languages are constantly being used as the only official means of communication in most previously colonized African countries. Arguably, its perpetual enforcement does pose a formidable threat to traditional African languages, which if ignored might render them extinct. Based on that fact, the need to decrease the potency and continuity of this perceived danger to the Balondo Language and other African languages at risk of extinction is sustained throughout the book through the introduction of a sufficient set of vocabulary in the Balondo language for mastery by its beginners, who will be educated enough via this strong transmitter of culture that is their language to become more well versed in understanding their universe as a whole, while simultaneously taking charge of their discourse, which is at the core of their consciousness or self-definition that has continued to be at risk of being distorted by nefarious stereotypes perpetuated by less informed individuals.
