For the local non-profit organization »Faraja« heißt Trost (»faraja means solace«) I was asked to make a website, were they can publish basic information about the organization and post current news about the project.
The organization was founded by remedial teachers Marianne and Reinhard Penn. With the founding they wanted to give disabled young people in multiple schools in Tanzania a new life perspective. They conduct funding events and support the schools with helping their students in their daily life.
Content Management with WordPress
The main goal was to have the founders manage the site’s content themselves. So we decided to use WordPress as the basis.
The Website design
The organization already had some pretty well designed print material. I wanted the site to reflect this and stick to the visual elements of the print design.
I also didn’t want to use a generic theme, so I developed a custom one.
Make the site work on mobile
With smart phones coming more and more into the mainstream, it was also important to make the site usable on a phone. Therefore I created a collapsible mobile navigation the makes space for the content on the limited screen space.
