|Translation - Czech|
Všechno zlé je k něčemu dobré? Říká se a bude na tom kus pravdy i podle Hasana.
Hasan je osmiletý chlapec, který dochází do centra ADRA v Bangladéši a díky němu, se mu dostává vzdělání, které by jinak neměl.
K učení ho motivuje událost, kdy mu zloděj z chatrče ukradl nové oblečení. Jeho rodina neměla prostředky, aby mu koupila jiné. Chce se stát tedy policajtem, aby mohl takové zloděje postihovat.
Nyní by se dalo říct, že je to obyčejný, příjemný a slušný kluk, který nejraději hraje fotbal, sleduje animované pohádky pro děti nebo si zdobí dům. Učitelé o něm dodávají, že je velmi inteligentní a rychle se učí. Rád se učí zejména matematiku. Má však také hudební nadání. Prozpěvuje si i např. při psaní. Kromě vzdělání se v centru učí i dobré společenské chování, hygienické návyky, respektu k druhým a obzvláště starším a autoritám. V neposlední řadě získává dobré přátelé, se kterými tráví i část svého volného času.
Pochází z Shariatpuru, jižní části Bangladéše. Jeho otec se jmenuje Delowar Hussain a matka Shilpy Begum.
Hasan se narodil čtvrtý z 5 sourozenců. Nejstarší bratr má 17 let, nejmladší 2 roky. Nejstarší bratr pochází z otcova prvního manželství, ze kterého otec ovdověl.
Do Dháky rodina odešla, aby zajistila živobytí a dětem vzdělání. Měli dát úplatek ve výši 60.000,- bangladéšských tak (dále BDT), aby získali trvalý pracovní poměr pro město Dháka. Peníze se jim nepodařilo nashromáždit a proto se rozhodl otec půjčit peníze, aby si zhotovil přepravní prostředek a začal živit rodinu jako přepravce.
Matka vypomáhá v domácnostech. Otec pracuje 15-20 dní v měsíci a vydělá si okolo 7.000,- BDT, matka vydělá okolo 1.500,- BDT, z toho 3.500,- BDT jde na nájem chatrče, 1.500,- BDT stojí školné, 2.500,- BDT stojí jídlo a dalších 500,- BDT směřuje na léky a další výdaje. 500,- BDT odkládají na půjčky a úspory. Jejich snem je uspořit dostatek peněz, aby si mohli koupit kus půdy v jejich původní vesnici a vrátit se do ní.
Chatrč, ve kterém rodina bydlí je z vlnitého plechu a dřeva. Toaletu sdílí s dalšími 2 rodinami. Bydlí v chatrči, která patří do projektu Čalantika na silnici č. 38. Základ jejich jídla tvoří rýže, kterou jí buď se zeleninou, čočkou, příležitostně s masem nebo rybou.
Hasan často matce pomáhá s domácími pracemi jako je sběr vody nebo hlídá mladšího bratra.
Jeho starší dvě sestry také navštěvují školu. Otec zůstává bez vzdělání a matka díky organizaci ADRA získala základní gramotnost.
„Jsme moc vděční za příležitost, kterou centrum ADRA naši rodině dává. Já se nyní umím podepsat. Hasan získává vzdělání, léčbu, zvláštní výživu. Jsme za to moc šťastni.“ říká Hasanova matka.

Dear Madam or Sir,
I am a Czech native speaker. I have studied English and Spanish linguistics at university (Jihočeská univerzita) in České Budějovice. I have lived, studied and worked in English and Spanish speaking countries. In recent years I have been working as a freelance translator and I am seeking more opportunities in this field.
At the moment I am mainly translating and proofreading in the language pairs from Czech to English, English to Czech and Czech to Spanish and Spanish to Czech.
The projects I work on cover a wide variety of subjects, such as
business correspondence, CVs, training manuals, websites, annual reports.
I prepared my own documents while working in Ireland as a training supervisor, a customer support supervisor and a support manager.
Last year I studied Legal English for translators and interpreters in court - Právnická fakulta, Masarykova Univerzita, Brno. This year I have been studying the same course of Legal Spanish.
As a volunteer, I have been translating documents and websites for nonprofit organizations such as Tamjdem, Namasté Nepál, ADRA (e.g. http://www.calantika.cz/cz/sekce/hasan-57/) and others.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Hana
