Advancing the Cause of Volunteer Groups

By Minhaj Rais, 2009-06-22
Over the past few years, Editage has developed a strong presence in the academic segment in Japan. With our vast experience in serving and interacting with various researchers and organizations, we aim to assist volunteer groups in their communication efforts in partnership with the Research Cooperative.As a part of this community service initiative launched by Editage (among the leading editing services providers in Japan), we offer help to NPOs/NGOs/student bodies looking to communicate their efforts more effectively in English. Specifically, we can help with writing, editing, proofreading, typesetting, and designing of documents, manuscripts, and website content.As an editor at Editage, I will be actively participating in this groups activities to offer help to volunteer groups and coordinate and assist in the execution of various tasks as per your requirements. Please feel free to contact me through this group or by sending a message if you wish to know whether you are eligible. The basic filtering criterion is that you need to be an NPO/NGO/student body. If you meet this criterion, then depending upon the scale and nature of your project, we will advise you on how we should proceed.Through the Japan Focus group, we intend to specifically reach out to such volunteer groups in Japan that are in need of help in making their communications in English more effective.
