Kindernothilfe and diva-e: strong partners in action for children in need
Kindernothilfe works worldwide with various partner organizations whose teams oversee the projects on site. Project Progress Reports (PFB) are prepared once a year for the sponsors and sent by mail, providing an overview of the developments, challenges and future steps of the projects. The reports aim to provide transparency about the use of the donations and their impact. Since 2021, diva-e's content team has been providing editorial support to Kindernothilfe in the preparation of the project progress reports.
One of the special challenges of this project was the complexity of the input for the preparation of the project progress reports: Kindernothilfe delivered the 20- to 60-page reports of the local partner organizations to diva-e in English, Portuguese, Spanish and French. In a first step, these had to be translated and then edited. Another challenging core aspect of the editorial work: the use of gender-appropriate, but above all sensitive language. The terminology must be appropriate for the protection of children and thus neither stigmatize those affected nor trivialize (sexualized) violence.
Tanja Dröge (Editorial Lead): "It is really nice that we are able to support Kindernothilfe and thus contribute a small part to the important work on children's rights. We faced some challenges with this project, especially at the beginning. Especially the sensitive language is something we first had to develop a feeling for. In the meantime, we have built up a strong editorial team. The authors and editors are passionate about their work and enjoy this effective project. Our contact person is satisfied: "In the meantime, we have increased the monthly number of texts and are in the processing phase, so to speak."
CSR at diva-e: Think social - for a better tomorrow
We are proud of our joint project with Kindernothilfe and what we have already achieved here. And in the future, too, we look forward to working with customers who, like Kindernothilfe, have made it their mission to help others. Assuming social responsibility is also important to us as a company. For 2021, we have therefore put the topic of corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the top of the agenda at diva-e, founded the diva-e Social Team and also firmly anchored social commitment in our corporate vision.
