Background and objectives
Requirements
We are seeking the support of an online volunteer to translate an article called "Principle Responsibilities Of An NGO Board And Its Members". The text has about 4000 words. Our organization, Ukrainian Philanthropists Forum (UPF) is a member organization. Our partnership with our members is being supported by the mutual sharing of information. That is why we need to have this article translated into Ukrainian to be further presented to the members and partners (other Ukrainian NGOs). In order to recognize online volunteers’ contributions, we will add a reference line to a volunteer who was working on the translation, with his\her name and a source (UNV). If needed, we will be happy to give recommendations for the volunteer's further job or initiatives.
