On the ground, we operate out of a mobile bus.
Online, we have a strong following of service users on Facebook who request information from us in Farsi and Arabic, as well as a growing number of people messaging us in Amharic, Tigrinya, Oromo and Urdu, stretching from the UK, to France, Germany, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan, and Lebanon, (Facebook doesn’t provide statistics from inside Iran and Syria). Through our online videos and services, we are able to reach thousands of displaced people.
Over the past year, our online following and the demand for our service on Facebook has grown significantly, with users requesting and receiving vital information on their rights and what options are open to them in Farsi and Arabic, with increasing numbers of people messaging us in Amharic, Tigrinya, Oromo and Urdu, stretching from the UK to Greece, France, Germany, Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan and Lebanon.
We work with a close-knit team of 7 remote cultural mediators and translators, all of whom are refugees themselves and have gone through the process of claiming asylum. They are dedicated to translating legal information as well as to answering facebook messages from service users, wherever they may be. If you speak Arabic, Farsi, Tigrinya, Oromo or Pashto and are interested in joining our team, drop us an email and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. All of our cultural mediators and translators are reimbursed for their work and provided with computers and kit needed in order to do their work.
Our team in Northern France is made up of dedicated, long-term volunteers. Volunteers need to be able to resilient to an ever-changing, nuanced environment. Day to day work is varied but can include research and production of information, contributing to and facilitating workshops, and providing, wifi, phone and information services in the field. We require our team to be drivers, and being fluent in English and France is a huge advantage.
While it is often not possible to volunteer in Northern France for long periods of time. We are always on the look out for remote volunteers, or people who are interested in getting involved, we are particularly interested in hearing from people who may be able to help with fundraising, graphic design or visual content.
If you are interested in volunteering, drop us an email on email@example.com. All volunteers, if they require, are provided with a stipend for living expenses and accommodation.
