I serve with a non-profit organization in Europe.
In the course of my first four years overseas, one of the major administrative tasks has been regularly producing various permutations and combinations of our identity documents: passports, birth and marriage certificates, residency documents, attestations of financial support and health insurance from our organization, etc. All of these for varying combinations of family members, with or without translations, in print or electronic form, as individual files or as a single file, etc.
And so a dedicated piece of software would be incredibly helpful that could:
If this idea became a reality it would greatly streamline any number of paperwork processes that add to the complexity and demands of living and serving overseas. I think this would also facilitate sharing know-how with one another very effectively this way. For example, sharing templates of “visa renewal paperwork” (etc.) with one another so that we don’t each reinvent the wheel and learn on our own what could simply be borrowed from someone else.
In all my searching, I don’t see a comparable program that already exists, whether for ex-pats generically or specifically intended for non profit workers/volunteers.
