On the occasion of 'International Literacy Day' on September 8, 2023, Jehovah's Witnesses will teach reading and writing skills to children and adults as part of their educational initiative.

Starting in the 1940s, the Witnesses have continuously operated free literacy classes around the world using the study aids Learn to Read and Write and Apply Yourself to Reading and Writing, it said in a press release.

The Witnesses have incorporated textbooks from the Theocratic Ministry of School Education into their weekly meeting programs. Even during the pandemic, when their meetings were held primarily by videoconference, families continued to benefit from this instruction.

The public is invited to attend meetings of Jehovah’s Witnesses. No collections are taken. Those in attendance are taught how to improve their literacy skills and to learn more about the Bible.

There is no registration fee and admission is free. Details on when and where these meetings are held locally, as well as articles about Jehovah's Witnesses' efforts to encourage literacy, are accessible on, the official website of Jehovah's Witnesses.
