Project Details

What We Need
  • A complete overhaul of a website’s current visual design (including creation of a customized theme for Wordpress if needed)
  • Design direction based on Organization's desired branding and style preferences
  • Mock-ups of key site pages
Additional Details

We currently have our website designed through Joomla, but would REALLY love to transition to a less-technical platform, ideally Squarespace. We're looking for someone who knows both Joomla (can get in a scrape content) and Squarespace (can repost all the content here on a new theme).

AEC, our US nonprofit, is looking for this project to be specifically for our Rwandan facing brand, visible at


What We Have In Place
  • We currently have content and an existing site (, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have Squarespace templates in mind, dedicated staff to support, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $9,186 , allowing us to provide services and loans to refugees in Africa.

Right now, we have several brands, and each brand's site uses a different back-end services provider. Configuring it all in an easy-to-update platform will allow us to have consistency across brands as well as to update it with more current information. This would be a HUGE help!
