「《大誌雜誌》一百元,協助街友重拾生活」- The Big Issue - A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Over the last 20 years, in cities across the UK, thousands of homeless and vulnerably accommodated people have taken the opportunity to earn a legitimate income. The Big Issue magazine is one of Britain's leading social businesses and exists to help the most needy in society on their journey away from homelessness.
過去二十年來,在英國各個城市裡,數千個無家可歸及家徒四壁的人,把握住賺取一份正當收入的機會。大誌雜誌是英國主要的社會企業之一,存在來幫助社會上最貧困的人步上脫離無家可歸的旅程。

The Big Issue, they gave me my life back. I had no life before I came to the Big Issue, and then when I've got a bad start, they gave me a second chance in life.
大誌雜誌,他們還給我我的生活。在我來到大誌雜誌以前,我根本沒有生活可言,然後在我有個不好的起點時,他們給予我人生的第二次機會。

The magazine is a hand up, not a handout, and helps those going through the trauma of homelessness to take control of their lives by turning them into a microenterprise.
這本雜誌是種協助,而非施捨,幫助那些遭遇無家可歸痛苦經歷的人們取得他們生活的主控權,藉由將他們轉變成一個微型企業。

You've got to help yourself before you're ready to get help—that's the way I feel.
人必自助而後人助之--那是我的感受。

"Big Issue, ladies. Big Issue?"
「大誌雜誌,女士們。買大誌雜誌嗎?」

You're giving them something for their money, and not just taking their money from them.
你給他們一樣東西來換他們的錢,而不是只有從他們身上拿錢。

Every week, they sell an entertainment and current affairs magazine which they buy for one pound and sell to the public for two. They learn to manage theirself, control their finances, and rebuild their confidence and self-esteem. These skills are crucial in helping homeless people reintegrate into mainstream society.
每星期,他們販售一本關於娛樂及時事的雜誌,一本他們用一英磅購入然後賣給大眾兩英鎊的雜誌。他們學會管理自己、控制他們的財務狀況,並且重建他們的信心和尊嚴。這些技能在協助街友們重新融入主流社會是很重要的。

Well, I look at—just because I'm homeless doesn't mean I still can't work, and that's what the Big Issue is about. And then that makes me feel good about myself.
嗯,我看著--只因為我無家可歸不代表我沒辦法工作,而那就是大誌雜誌的意義。然後那讓我覺得我自己很好。

The Big Issue vendor is someone who has taken the first step to rebuilding their lives.
大誌雜誌的兜售者是個邁開重建他們生活第一步的人。
