Volunteering Opportunity with Kiva

Volunteering Opportunity for Translators and Editors with Kiva.org

Kiva LogoKiva is a non-profit organization with the mission to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty. On the Kiva website (www.kiva.org) visitors will find the profiles of thousands of people seeking small loans in 80 countries around the world. These profiles come in Spanish, French, Russian, Portuguese, and English. Kiva’s volunteer community of 380+ editors and translators reviews, edits, and translates these loan profiles so that Kiva lenders can read them in English and choose which borrowers they would like to support. More information about the Kiva Volunteer Translator role can be found here: http://www.kiva.org/about/translationprogram. Kiva asks volunteers to spend at least 2 hours per week for a minimum of 6 months.
