In some locations—typically island nations in the Pacific or dense rainforests with no air or ground transportation—boats are the only way translation teams can reach remote language communities.
Without JAARS, this might mean catching a crowded, dilapidated commercial ferry or using hazardous, poorly maintained local watercraft. So we work on solutions. In some cases, that might mean providing safety equipment and training, which you can read more about below. Other times, we might supply an appropriate, well-equipped boat to a mission partner overseas. Or instead, deploy a boat and crew and continue to support, operate, and maintain it for the partner.
We’re also developing the option of building partnerships with local organizations who can own and operate safe vessels while we assume responsibility for scheduling, safety protocols, fares, and program funding. In all cases, safety, sustainability, and stewardship are critical factors.
