Tarjimly is a tech nonprofit and app that connects the world's 23 million refugees with on-demand translators that can 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 achieve this by training and making it easy for the world's 3 billion bilinguals to volunteer as on-demand translators. Tarjimly means "translate for me" and was founded by two immigrant MIT graduates, Atif and Aziz, who were deeply moved by the refugee crisis. In the last year, their 6,000 translators have helped over 15,000 refugees and NGOs globally and Tarjimly has been supported by Y Combinator, Echoing Green, and Fast Forward. Their mission is to eliminate humanitarian language barriers and prove that technology can mobilize millions of people and their remote skills to help refugees.Something looks off?
