With Bangladesh’s population exceeding 162 million people, it can be hard to find good seats while using public transportation. It’s not uncommon to see commuters riding on top, hanging from the side, or sitting on the rear hitch of passenger trains.

In Bangladesh few people own automobiles or bicycles, so many rely on rickshaws, buses, trains, and riverboats to get them from place to place. Unfortunately crowded spaces and frequent traffic jams are often inevitable, making travel uncomfortable and difficult.

Around the world, those involved in Bible translation encounter their own transportation challenges. Reliable land, sea and air transportation is necessary, but it is not always available, especially in rural areas. Flights to remote regions can save teams days of hiking. Staff working in places with rough roads travel more securely with off-road driving training and the right vehicles. And when passage over water is the only way to reach a language community, water safety kits or the provision of a boat can keep translation teams safe on the water. 

JAARS, a Wycliffe Global Alliance partner organization, is committed to finding and providing sustainable solutions to alleviate transportation issues for translation workers whether it’s providing dependable equipment or offering practical training.
