Crisis centres in Latvia utilise various ways to raise money, including applying for various EU grants (up to EUR 50,000 per grant that can be spent to buy furniture and educate staff, etc.). Such funding applications need to be submitted in English and subsequent reports to be produced in English. Crisis centres in Latvia are struggling with the translations, and Giving for Latvia has come forward to match Crisis centres with distance volunteers translators.
We call for all those who would like to volunteer and assist a Crisis centre with English language funding application projects to email us.
Not all translation jobs are related to grants, however volunteer help will also be very much appreciated for smaller jobs like upgrading English language websites of the centres or translation of information on children nominated for international rehabilitation summer camps.
