A non-profit Foundation in USA,
www.jainworld.com is unique and is already revolutionizing the
way Jainism is perceived globally. Our Mission*24L* plan makes sure that
Jainworld.com extends coverage to more than 95% of the global population,
and has already translated in all of 24 designated languages, representing
the 24 Tirthankars. Mission *24L* is like a modern day “Samavasharan” or
assembly of Thirthankars who made the core values of Jainism accessible to
all, all the time, in all the languages.
Jainworld.com’s massive multiple language editions of
a huge, user-friendly web site has created an in-depth knowledge-base and
global resource center complete with authentic and original Jain scripture
and commentaries to serve everyone, Jains and non-Jains, from a casual
visitor to a serious research fellow. This is a historical landmark in the
cause of Jainism not achieved before. Jainworld is now a truly global
movement participated from 151 countries and more than 92347+ hits per

global signature for Jainism.
Several thousand Jains and non-Jains across the globe
(including India) are using Jain World regularly (92,347 hits per day) to
learn Jainism and to teach their children or the ‘Pathshala’ students. Our
E-learning is advancing this penetration much dipper and reaching wider
base. Several universities are now using JainWorld as a knowledge base of
Jainism for the courses in English and other languages. There are 600
academic Jainism projects guided by JainWorld in high schools and colleges

More than 700 Jainism related outreach efforts by
Radio-TV talks, lectures, discussion groups for non-Jain audience are
getting initiated in world languages through Jain World. More and more non-Jains
across globe are requesting for free material on various aspects of Jainism.
JainWorld has arrangements in place to provide such material free of cost to
all of them. We helped several non-Jains outside India to stay with Jain
families to understand how Jains follow non-violence in day to day life.

awareness about Jain foods and remains a valuable source for all hotels,
airlines and individuals world wide.
