Starting on Giving Tuesday Now, within one month, we will translate one hundred stories. Will you join us?
On Tuesday May 5 2020, the first Giving Tuesday Now took place. This global day for giving and unity is an emergency response to the unprecedented needs caused by COVID-19. Now that schools are closed, multilingual children who speak a different language at home, miss out on the languages they would otherwise use at school.
Our Goal: One Hundred Translations Within One Month
With a team of supporters, the Rutu Foundation has pledged to give a significant boost to the stories available for multilingual children on the online platform Storyweaver. Within one month, we will translate one hundred stories. This will give thousands of children access to great, imaginative stories from around the world in both their mother tongue and the language they use at school.
The first translations inspired by #GiveATranslation are already available in Italian, German and Dutch. Other languages such as Papiamentu and Frisian are following soon.
