Background and objectives
Online Volunteers will translate during meetings of the Global Council, the highest and most important decision making body of the organizations. All Global Council members are democratically elected and highly experienced and respected members of Civil Society Organizations defending human rights, fighting for the SDGs, against inequalities and climate change. During meetings a diverse range of topics will be discussed, from policy deliberations on global debt relief to global civil society mobilizations and SDGs implementation. The full list of Global Council members can be found on our website: https://gcap.global/about/#global-council. Approximately 10 meetings with a duration of 2 hours each will take place during this 25-week long assignment. The meetings will most likely take place on Thursdays at 2 pm GMT. We are looking for three people who can translate both directions, between English - French and French - English. Each person translates in 20-minute intervals.
Translation and interpretation
Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP) is a civil society network organization that supports people in their struggles for justice and bring individuals and organizations together to challenge the institutions and processes that perpetuate poverty and inequalities. Together, we defend and promote human rights, gender justice, social justice, climate justice, and the security needed for the dignity and peace of all. We are a network of over 11,000 civil society organizations (CSOs) organized in 58 National Coalitions and in constituency groups of women, youth and socially-excluded people, among others. Online Volunteers will make a crucial contribution to advance this mission and make meetings accessible. We will credit the Online Volunteers by providing letters of acknowledgment upon request once the project is completed as well as a reference on this platform.
