Website Construction (CMS-Based)
Impact statement
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to train more marginalized youth in Africa as wellbeing professionals and lead the industry growth from within.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have website content and a design to work with, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a staff member to support this process, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

We have clarified our work over the past 3 years, and want a website that reflects that. The new website should inspire people to donate all the time for a good cause, and show that we are an education institution.
