UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, seeks to build a pool of potential candidates to work as interpreters/translators from Arabic/Kurdish/Farsi/Pashto/Urdu to Bulgarian and/or English for Participatory Assessment exercises within the Age, Gender and Diversity mainstreaming process. Participatory assessment is a process of building partnerships with refugee women and men of all ages and backgrounds by promoting meaningful participation through structured dialogue. Participatory assessment includes holding separate discussions with women, girls, boys, and men, including adolescents, in order to gather accurate information on the specific protection risks they face and the underlying causes, to understand their capacities, and to hear their proposed solutions.
UNHCR is a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people. Every year, millions of men, women and children are forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and persecution. The organization is present in over 125 countries, using our expertise to protect and care for millions.
