Tarjim.ly is a tech nonprofit that connects the world's 23 million refugees with translators to help them integrate and communicate with medics, lawyers, and aid workers. Refugees can anonymously connect with a translator in 60 seconds and send text, pictures, documents, or even get on a phone or video call. We do this by making it easy for the world's 3 billion bilinguals to volunteer as realtime translators from anywhere - now they can directly help a refugee or NGO right from their phone. Tarjimly's mission is to eliminate humanitarian language barriers and prove that technology can mobilize millions of people and their remote skills to help those in need.
