Translate for FPW

We strive to provide essential documents to grantees and potential grantees in their native languages, making it easier for them to express themselves according to their own cultures and ways of thinking. One of the best ways you can support Indigenous development is to help us translate these documents.

Most importantly, we are working on translating our Grant Application into as many languages as possible. Our priority is translating the application into Spanish and French, but we welcome translations into anything from Arabic to Greenlandic. We’d also like to be able to allow prospective grantees to submit their completed applications in their native languages, when a translator is available.

Unfortunately, at this time our budget does not cover paid translator positions, so we must rely on volunteer translators.

If you’d like to offer translation services as an in-kind donation to First Peoples Worldwide, please contact us at info@firstpeoples.org, and write TRANSLATION in the subject line.

  • Mining on the Guajira Peninsula: Wayuu Communities Fight Against Coal Extraction
