    HAManitarian Program announced

    GECO (Grassroots Emergency Communications Operations) created its HAManitarian Program integrating HAM radio, Emergency Preparedness, Emergency Communications using its brand of Community-based Education to develop and promote community resilience to disasters while improving the quality of primary to post-secondary education.

    This is a holistic program based on collaborations of government (national to local levels), with students, teachers, civic organizations (local to international), businesses and community volunteers.
    You can get details of the HAManitarian program at http://www.neighborhoodlink.com/files/document/529252578

    We are seeking volunteers to translate paper from English to other languages. For Amateur radio clubs seeking ways to develop the next generation of EmComm operators should consider this approach. GECO volunteers are ready to collaborate with interested groups to tailor the program to their needs.

    ECO is an informal community-based education group of volunteers. We are not a formal non-profit, but operate like a non-profit. We work on a people-to-people basis. We do not solicit outside funding. In the spirit of HAM radio, we freely share our ideas with others based on mutual respect, mutual benefit. We strive to make the world a better place through friendship and understanding. FFI:

    I might try to translate the document to my native lanuage, Polish. What format do you accept the translation in?

    Have you tried Google Translator? I have done this with some manuals and it worked out quite well.

    Thank you for your help. Please send a MS Word file. I will add the attribution (credit notice for you help) and post the final as a PDF on the GECO website http://www.neighborhoodlink.com/GECO.

    Thanks. Yes, I've tried google translate, but a while ago. When I had friends overseas review the results, they laughed a lot and suggested I continue to send papers to them in English as the translations were more troublesome to read than the English. So I would prefer to have any google translate results reviewed and edited by a native foreign language speaker.

    Thank you Max. Yes, readily acknowledge the reality of life is that anyone helping with this effort won't be expected to be working on it full time, 24/7. The work will be done whenever time is available. I can't expect folks to do volunteer work any differently from me. I certainly work on these projects when time permits. Rest assured I am grateful for anyone willing to read the announcement. If they share it with others, or pitch in with translating it, those are all welcomed bonuses. With that said, belated thanks to G4TUT for posting the HAManitarian announcement here. Best wishes to all.
