04 July 2016: Peace Direct is looking for volunteer translators to help support its work in Somalia. Get in touch if you'd like to contribute.

Hello Somali We need help! At Peace Direct, our vision is of a just world free from violent conflict. And through projects like Insight on Conflict, we are able to help shine a light on local peacebuilding organisations around the world, all working to achieve the same thing.

But there are many of them, and fewer than 15 of us, so talking to them all can become difficult – especially when we don’t speak the same language. So we are looking for volunteer translators to help us in our work.

If you are fluent in English and Somali and would like to contribute to our mission, we’d like to hear from you. If you’re suitably qualified, we will add you to our pool of volunteer translators.

The way it works is the following: when we have something that needs translating, we email the translators in our pool with details of the translation available – length, topic and deadline. If they’re available, they reply and let us know – there’s never any obligation to respond.

Documents for translation may include blog articles, video transcribing and translation and reports from the field. We have several projects for which we need continuous support, translating updates from Peace Direct partner organisations. We would particularly welcome anyone able to volunteer on a semi-regular basis.

What we ask for depends on the task, but we are flexible. We are grateful for all the help we receive, and you would be very welcome to add your contribution to your CV or LinkedIn profile.

If you would be interested in volunteering as a translator, please send a CV with details of your English and Somali language skills and any translating experience to charlotte.fraser@peacedirect.org.

Thank you in advance.

There has been a rise in violence in Kashmir, amid claims of a growing culture of martyrdom that is beginning to form the new driving narrative for militancy and violence. This glorification of martyrdom as seen in Kashmir has its roots in growing violent extremism, the recruitment of young men to violence, and militarisation. This article takes up the issue by looking at the role of mothers giving up their sons for the cause, and finding their own agency in a patriarchal society through their son's martyrdom. Read more »
