Can you speak and write French very well? Do you have knowledge of fundraising? And do you want to put that expertise to use for a charitable cause? Then you may be who we’re looking for! Our organization is in search of a French translator who can help us with translating texts for our foundation Casa de la Alegría, our language-school Juntucha and our small-scale agency Beyond South America, that facilitates internships and voluntary work!
About Casa de la Alegría:
Casa de la Alegría is a young, enthusiastic organization which helps youth in Cochabamba, Bolivia, become more self-reliant. This we do by allowing for, and through the encouragement of, the development of socio-emotional skills among children. Control of aggression, the build out of self-confidence, and the stimulating of self-reliance are but some of the matters with which we deal. Our passion lies in cooperation for the achievement of development, and our vision is that developmental projects ought to be a fitted response to a demand from within communities. Hence, we work with, rather than just for our target group.
We are a small foundation with big dreams, and to make these dreams a reality we are in constant search of possibilities to make our foundation more efficient. One of such ways to make our organization more efficient has been through the creation of the language school. Besides this we took over the small-scale agency 6 months ago. The language school Juntucha and the small-scale agency Beyond South America offers a source of income which gives the foundation a boost in its own self-reliance.
In order to realize our goals in Bolivia and the Netherlands, documents sometimes have to be translated from Dutch or English to French and vice versa. Because we are now starting fundraising in French-speaking countries we are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible French-language translator with (preferably) practical knowledge of fundraising. The work can be carried out from home, and the hours can be arranged flexibly. We do, however, expect good, clear communication about availability and that you keep to agreements made.
· Good French language skills;
· Preferably translation experience;
· Knowledge of and/or affinity with, fundraising (and related terminology);
· Enthusiasm for the attainment of our organization’s cause;
· A professional and proactive attitude.
What we can offer you:
The opportunity to be actively involved in a young organization and to play an important role in the realization of our goals. We will support you in the execution of your work with professional guidance and coaching, and will offer you freedom in the presentation and elaboration of your own ideas.
