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.

British Red Cross - Rapid Response

We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters, and individual emergencies.

We help vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities.

Caritas Hellas MMP

Founded in 1976 by the Catholic Bishops in Greece, Caritas Hellas (Caritas Greece) has a mission to promote and safeguard human dignity through social support services to migrants and refugees, advocate on behalf of the poor and needy and provide humanitarian aid when natural disasters or other types of emergency situations occur.

Caritas Hellas has an extensive range of programmes that include offering nourishment and expert social support services to a rapidly growing population of refugees and immigrants, young people in need, the elderly and needy families. On a daily basis, the service includes the distribution of food, clothes, education, counseling and psychological support to 300 people, including 80 children. In addition, Caritas Hellas also has a prison-visiting programme that offers ethical support and facilitates links with families.

Catholic Relief Services MMP

173,447 refugees and migrants entered Greece from 2015-2016 seeking opportunities in Europe and an escape from conflicts in their home countries. The population was transient as many persons of concern had other countries as their final destinations.

Shelter – CRS and its partners have renovated 13 urban buildings with 1,300 spaces for temporary shelter. Families live in these apartments which have kitchens and bedrooms, and they participate in building management committees and integration activities with the local community.

Cash Assistance – 10,000 persons of concern at 15 sites are receiving monthly cash assistance through pre-paid debit cards. Having cash allows persons of concern to meet their basic needs as they see fit, giving them choice and a more dignified way to begin integrate into lives of normalcy and safety. It also recirculates the assistance into the local economy, thereby reducing any burdens placed on their host communities.

CCCM Cluster (Camp Coordination and Camp Management)

The mission of CCCM is to ensure equitable access to services and protection for displaced persons living in communal settings, to improve their quality of life and dignity during displacement, and advocate for solutions while preparing them for life after displacement. The Global CCCM Cluster supports field operations with tools, guidance and capacity building to coordinate and manage displaced populations effectively.

The Global CCCM Cluster is composed of a number of partner agencies. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) co-lead the Global CCCM Cluster for natural disaster and conflict-induced IDP situations respectively.

CDAC Network

The goal of the CDAC Network is that communities affected by, and prone to, crisis are better able to withstand humanitarian emergencies and are actively engaged in decisions about the relief and recovery efforts in their country.

The CDAC Network’s purpose is to position two-way communication with affected people at the heart of resilience-building, preparedness and response. This will enhance the effectiveness of aid; foster greater accountability and transparency; and improve the outcomes experienced by affected people. Importantly, it will enable stronger communications within affected groups and between affected groups and other stakeholders.

The aims of the CDAC Network are that:
* Affected communities are better able to access life-saving information, voice their needs, ideas and feedback, and make informed decisions about their immediate recovery
* Humanitarian practitioners and organisations are better prepared and able to provide life-saving information and communicate with crisis-affected communities, enhancing the effectiveness of their response
* The humanitarian system has the capability to ensure that two-way communication with affected communities becomes a predictable, consistent and resourced element of disaster resilience and response, including through the use of innovative technology and partnerships where appropriate and cost-effective

The CDAC Network's niche is in convening a unique mix of actors to leverage improvements in two-way communication especially through media and technology channels, and to assist humanitarian organisations in practical terms in making this a reality at field level. These improvements will be underpinned by, and consistent with, an analysis of the wider communication environment, including more traditional approaches.

Centre for Access to Football in Europe (CAFE)

To raise disability awareness, share good, inclusive practices and to improve the matchday experience of disabled football supporters across Europe.

CAFE is working with supporters, clubs and governing bodies towards one clear aim - a more accessible and inclusive matchday experience for disabled supporters across Europe.

CAFE estimates that at least 500,000 disabled people within the extended UEFA European region are likely to be active football supporters with many more aspiring to become match going supporters. Disabled people have the right to enjoy football, sports and all forms of entertainment in the same way as everyone else. This applies to football at all levels.

Child Rights International Network (CRIN)

CRIN is a global research, policy and advocacy organisation. Our goal is a world where children's rights are recognised, respected and enforced, and where every rights violation has a remedy - https://www.crin.org/en/home/about. We are a small organisation of 17 staff members.
We are seeking Translators without Borders’ help in obtaining translations for one of our main projects: ‘Access to justice for children: challenging violations of children’s rights’ (https://www.crin.org/en/home/law/access). The project maps out how children can access justice for rights violations in every country in the world by producing reports for every country in the world, as well as a global comparative report. Currently, there are 100 country reports published on CRIN’s website and we aim to publish the remainder by mid-2015.

Child to Child

Child to Child is an international child-rights agency located at the Institute of Education, University of London.

A pioneer of the children’s participation movement, the Child to Child concept was first developed in 1978 by our Founders, Dr. David Morley (Institute of Child Health) and Dr. Hugh Hawes (Institute of Education) to commemorate the forthcoming International Year of the Child (1979). The Child to Child Trust (now called Child to Child) was established as an organisation in 1987. Since then, we have delivered a range of services to organisations all around the world to promote children’s participation and child-led approaches.

Child to Child trains leading global agencies in a number of practical approaches that enable children to play a meaningful role in their own lives and to promote the health, education and wellbeing of themselves and their communities.
