Translate a Story

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 200 million children and youth are out of school. Many lack access to reading materials in a language they understand. Your organization can help children in your community continue their learning process!

April 23 – September 8

Your organization can make a difference by translating one book into one new language! It takes approximately 1 hour to translate one book, with variations depending on the level.

Your organization can take as much time as you need to translate a book. This particular translation push this year is between April 23 and September 8, 2021.
