In summer 2016 we met with Uganda Children's Trust Fund (UCTF) to talk about a redesign for their charity website, and we are now delighted to share with you the finished project.

Firstly, let's give you a bit of background on the charity, UCTF's goal is to educate a focused group of underprivileged children in Uganda from ages 7 through to University. Educational scholarships are provided for children to attend partner (or trusted) schools that provide quality teaching within the current education system.


Challenge

UCTF required a new fresh look to their website and navigation that would drive engagement and retention, the site lacked speed, stability and security required for a growing charity.

An important part of the charity is keeping visitors up-to-date with current news and the platform needed to support this. The website also needed to encourage visitors to donate, sign up for events or to volunteer, register for newsletters and enhance social interactions with UCTF.


Solution

We have created a platform that clearly reflects the UCTF desired brand positioning, business objectives and importantly answers to the needs of the visitor to be kept up-to-date with the charity. The redesigned website is intuitive to use whilst being strong from a commercial perspective and visually connecting the look and feel of the charity.

  • A fully functional CMS platform with real time editing, audit trails and the preview of pages before publishing live.
  • Supported with a fully responsive design on both mobile and tablet the new website design is accessible for all users visiting via an 'on the go' device.
  • The new website is fully integrated with the donor management system eTapestry from Blackbaud, for donations and data management, the user journey around the website is natural and has key CTA's including to register for newsletters, make a donation or find out more on fundraising activities and news.

FARM were a very professional and diligent company to work with and no request has been too small, they have worked above and beyond to ensure a smooth process of development and we are extremely pleased with the work that they did and hugely satisfied with the end product.We highly recommend FARM for their outstanding work and we look forward to continuing to work together into the future."
