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 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.

Transparentem

TRANSPARENTEM is a discreet, non-profit unit that adopts frontline investigative reporting and forensic methods in compliance with international ethical standards to illuminate supply chains and spur eradication of human and environmental abuses. A public service initiative, Transparentem is a sentinel, not a saboteur, to industries at inflection points. The unit believes that securing and improving the lives and environments of workers at all tiers of off-shored industry must start with independent, methodical inquiry.

The initial recipients of Transparentem’s intelligence reports are those whose procurement strategies can rapidly transform markets. The unit commits to telling those recipients—principally brands and retailers that will receive the reports free-of-charge—what they may not, but should, know about those with whom they do business. This includes the activities of their direct and indirect suppliers.

TraumahilfeZentrum Nürnberg e.V.

To assist traumatized people to find back to stabilization and to integrate the trauma in their daily lives.

Trócaire

Trócaire provides humanitarian assistance and long-term support to communities in over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Last year, 2.6 million people directly benefited from our overseas programmes. In Ireland, we raise awareness about the root causes of poverty and inequality, and campaign on justice issues.

Trócaire also responds to humanitarian crises in countries where natural disaster or conflict has put people's lives at risk. For more info, please visit: https://www.trocaire.org/whatwedo/wherewework
