New Stëmm.lu website now also in English
Thanks to the support of the communication agencies VOUS and the LOUPE, Stëmm vun der Strooss upgraded its website last year under the new domain www.stemm.lu, a shortened version of what was www.stemmvunderstrooss.lu. Likewise all email addresses have changed to be @stemm.lu.
Another step forward for the charitable organisation is that their website is now also available in English. Up until April 2016 Stëmm’s website has only been in French, but thanks to 25-year old volunteer Michaela Peters, a Criminal Law and Criminal Justice student at the University of London, the contents of the newly-designed website has been translated into English. Stëmm aims to communicate in writing in both French and English across all of its platforms where possible.
“This new name is much shorter and easier for people to remember. Both employees and our clients refer tous as “Stëmm” and so it makes sense to use this abbreviation globally,” explains Alexandra Oxacelay, Director of Stëmm. “Our website was due an upgrade and is now cleaner, faster and not only looks much better but is also easier to navigate. We are very pleased to announce that it is now also available in English, which is very important for us to be able to access a wider, international audience.”
Founded in 1996, Stëmm vun der Strooss literally translates to ‘Voice of the Street’ and a large number of their beneficiaries are homeless people or those who live close to the poverty line and are vulnerable to becoming homeless. The association encourages the social and professional integration of underprivileged but also discriminated individuals. Stëmm mainly supports people who are homeless, unemployed, living on a minimum wage, ex-criminals, asylum seekers, immigrants and people who suffer from addictions such as alcoholism, drugs and medication.
