We live in over 230 countries and come from many ethnic and cultural backgrounds. You may be familiar with our preaching work, but we also help local communities in other important ways. Like disaster relief, bible teaching, help for thousands of languages including sign language, teaching to read, construction of places of worship, teaching in prisons, and many other volunteer activities.
Some of the things we do: -Bible-based education is helping the deaf in multiple countries. Jehovah’s Witnesses arrange a wide range of Bible-based material and educational programs in Sign Language. -We build "Kingdom Halls"(house of worship) by unpaid volunteers from all walks of life. In many lands, Kingdom Hall Construction Groups have been organized. Teams of construction servants and volunteers move from one congregation to the next within a country, even in remote areas, assisting the local congregations with the construction of their Kingdom Halls. -Each day, inmates in U.S. correctional institutions write dozens of letters to the offices of Jehovah’s Witnesses, requesting spiritual help. We respond to such requests, arranging for ministers in local congregations to visit and study the Bible with those in jails, prisons, state hospitals, youth facilities, and substance-abuse facilities. - Reaching out to aboriginal communities. -Many many more....visit JW.ORG for our latest projects.
