Website Set Up (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Set up of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: We recommend that you do a Website Content Plan project first, so that you have all the content ready for your new CMS-based site. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily - no coding required!
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have content for the website, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have graphic materials such as photos, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to purchase more sewing machines and materials for our Tailoring project for adolescent mothers and school leavers from Blantyre City slums. We will also use the funds to pay trainers.

This project will make our organization and our activities visible to a wide audience which will include donors. The website is considered as a fundraising tool.
