List of non-profits

Translators without Borders supplies voluntary or low cost translation services to humanitarian organisations. The following is a list of some of the non-profit organizations served.

The Rumie Initiative

We need help translating our platform so that the end learners using our solution can easily navigate to their learning content.

The Starfish Canada

OUR MISSION.
The Starfish Canada celebrates and amplifies environmental, solutions-based stories across the nation, with a focus on youth-based initiatives.
WHAT WE DO.
• We are the source for responsible decision-making for Canadian youth. Our university student volunteers are trained on how to take technical science, policy and research and turn it into accessible articles for our readers to enjoy.
• Community outreach and education. We aim to create a community that is engaged, grows new relationships, and builds upon pre-existing bonds. We are in towns and cities across the nation through outreach events, festivals, workshops and fairs.
• Provide a voice to community groups. We celebrate local groups that recognizes and engage in positive action. We do much of this work through our Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 program, where we amplify projects being done by youth across Canada to create a cleaner, healthier Canada.

The UK Open University

The cornerstone of the OU’s mission is social justice. The University is dedicated to being a world leader in the development of high quality, distance education that can be delivered at scale, providing access to and opportunities for education to all. It is the largest University in Europe and delivers learning to more than 260,000 students each year, with over 50,000 studying worldwide.
For the last two decades the OU has had a special interest in Africa, partnering with governments, international agencies, training and education providers and local people to build capacity for the continent's future. Our international development programmes are based on working in partnership with local experts, creating content which is open access, and working with governments to develop sustainable, scalable solutions in areas such as health education and teacher education. Our programmes reach hundreds of thousands and in some cases millions of professionals, in particular those working in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa, and in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

The Well Project

The Well Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to change the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic through a unique and comprehensive focus on women and girls.
We aim to accomplish this by focusing on three critical gaps related to women and HIV:
• Information access: develop and provide information that can increase women’s access to health care, engagement with providers, and treatment success. Our award-winning web portal provides easy-to-understand, accurate, current information on HIV/AIDS for women and girls and attracts more than 1 million unique visitors each year from every country in the world. The site features more than 150 articles covering medical, personal, and cultural topics related to HIV-positive and negative women and girls.
• Community support: offer support and advocacy development initiatives to address stigma, discrimination, and the need for enhanced leadership for women and girls
• Targeted research: undertake research efforts that address the gaps

The Womanity Foundation

We would like to give more visibility to our local partners by translating some of their key documents in English. At the moment we are looking for translators from Spanish and Portuguese to English. However, as we scale our activities we might need other languages. We might also require some of our document to be translated from English to French and or German to promote our activities in Switzerland.

Think Equal

Think Equal is a not for profit organization based in London, U.K. We work globally with Early Years education (children 3-6 years of age), with the aim of offering accessible social-emotional learning to all children, free of charge. Our programme utilizes children's books that focus on topics such as: empathy; kindness; environmental awareness and action; gender equality; self-esteem; emotional regulation; global citizenship; and problem-solving. Each book is accompanied by three lesson plans and printable resources, which teachers can implement in their own classrooms.

We are a young organization, but expanding quickly. We are working to ensure that our materials are available in many languages, so that teachers can access the programme in the children's mother tongue wherever possible

Thyroid, Head and Neck Cancer Foundation/THANC Foundation

The THANC Foundation is an independent foundation dedicated to improving thyroid, head and neck cancer patient's quality of life, care and outcomes. Our mission is to raise funds for research, to provide education to medical professionals and those affected with cancer and to offer patient support programs, both in person and online.

Toybox

We help children marginalised and abused by those who should protect them. We work with local organisations who are best placed to help find the most appropriate ways to prevent and help children escape from a life on the streets.

Training for Change

For over 20 years, Training for Change has provided activist training for groups standing up for social, economic, and environmental justice through strategic nonviolence. We’ve led hundreds of workshops and trained thousands of people – from striking steelworkers to interfaith coalitions for immigrant rights – in the skills they need to effectively create change. Using our unique experiential approach, we create learning environments that provide the practical tools and insights that activists can use, as well as opportunities for real growth, transformation, and empowerment.
We work with grassroots activists on five continents, although our particular focus is on helping to develop strong social movements in North America.

Translators without Borders

Translators without Borders is an independent non-profit association established in 1993, dedicated to helping NGOs extend their humanitarian work by providing free, professional translations.

The funds saved through the use of volunteer translations can then be used by the NGOs in the field, enabling them to extend the scope and reach of their humanitarian work.
