A2ZTranslate maintains several active CSR programs.
Currently we sponsor and provide pro-bono services as follows.
Pacifica Languages Translation Scholarship
To be first awarded for the 2016 academic year, A2ZTranslate has teamed up with Auckland University of Technology to award a scholarship in the Graduate Diploma in Translation or Interpreting studies for any Pacifica language. A2ZTranslate has long noted the lack of trained and qualified translators in Pacifica languages and is hoping to encourage suitable students to consider a career in the field, or as a supporting qualification for careers in fields as diverse as the Diplomatic Corp, Health, Justice or Social Welfare. The scholarship will cover approximately 50% of fees, and is to be managed by the AUT Scholarships Office.
Shakti Asian Women’s Refuge.
This refuge is for Asian women and children in New Zealand who have had to leave their family home due to domestic violence issues. Shakti has an active community education program. A2ZTranslate have provided pro-bono translations of a wide range of educational and informational material for the refuge across a wide range of languages.
A2ZTranslate is a Bronze corporate sponsor of Legasea, an organization working actively to protect and enhance recreational fishing stocks and rights in New Zealand
Special Children’s Christmas Parties
A2ZTranslate has been a corporate sponsor of Special Children’s Christmas Parties (SCCP) for over 10 years. Every year a huge Christmas Party is held for children who come from a wide range of disadvantaged backgrounds, from those with physical and mental disabilities to victims of domestic violence to those living in poverty. Every year 6 parties are held across NZ, with up to 2300 children attending and having a great day out as well as receiving age appropriate gifts.
