(Reposting because we have had interest in the presentation from an organization in Pakistan, so Urdu translation is now a priority.)

Are you good with languages? Would you like to help us spread the word about our Family Planning Freedom is Prolife project?

We've had interest in the presentation from around the world, and we'd like to make it available in languages other than English. We're looking for at least the official UN languages: Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), French, Russian, and Spanish. Hindi, Polish, Portuguese, Swahili, Tagalog, and Urdu would also be good. Please contact volunteer@allourlives.org if you can help. Thanks!

All Our Lives seeks dedicated volunteers to help us:

  • Upgrade our global directory of abortion-reducing resources.
  • Design visually appealing PowerPoint slides, fact sheets, flyers, and posters, especially for our new "Contraception Is Prolife" campaign.
  • Form an outstanding board of directors.
  • Launch as a US-based official nonprofit with a global focus.

Email your statement of interest and resume to volunteer@allourlives.org.  We especially encourage applications from women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBT persons. All Our Lives fosters a pro every life, pro nonviolent choice agenda.

Google.org has launched Health Speaks, a new initiative to try to increase the amount of online health information in languages other than English. Health Speaks will begin with pilot projects in Arabic, Hindi and Swahili. Bilingual volunteers are encouraged to translate health-related Wikipedia (EN) articles into one of these three languages, using the Health Speaks website and Google Translator Toolkit. Google.org is also looking for reviewers, who will read published translations in Wikipedia to ensure that they meet sufficient quality standards.

For the first 60 days, Google.org will donate 3 US cents per English word translated to the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF), the Public Health Foundation of India, and the Children's Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 (for Swahili, Hindi and Arabic respectively), up to a maximum of US $50,000 each.

If you speak Arabic, Hindi, or Swahili, please consider joining HealthSpeaks.  Translating information on sexual and reproductive health would be a great way to give people, especially women, power over their reproductive lives and to promote reproductive peace.
