Make a regular or a one-off gift to our Foundation.
Much of this website is produced by volunteers. But we also need paid professional skills, and we have some fixed costs.
If you know more than one language, please consider helping us.
The website has 11 interface languages. There is a lot to do to make more of the site fully multilingual.
Share with us your eagle eye for detail!
Words mis-spelt or missing? Punctuation? Formatting problems? We want high quality!
Share your story
Share your experience to enrich this 'human library'.
At the heart of For A New World are the "stories of lives changed"...
Help review the media on the platform.
We need to check the quality of media files: photos, PDFs, video and sound.
Test the website
Check links and other possible errors by surfing around the website.
With the website still being under development, there is a constant need for user testing to find unexpected problems.
Make links between different items.
Some links are alredy there but many more are needed to create the experience we are looking for!
Make short summaries of longer content.
Every page on the site needs a succinct 15 word summary which appears in lists and in search engines.
Help subtitle films (or translate subtitles) from preprepared texts.
Many films available in only one language can be subtitled into other languages, and it is not difficult!
If you have a scanner, you could help us.
We are aiming to make available more PDF versions of books and press cuttings, as well as digital photos.
Oversee and lead areas of work like Proofreading, Digitalisation, Quality checking, Translation, etc
Our team is small and the areas that need oversight and coordination are many. Therefore, we need some "team coordinators".
