Edufundi is a Non-Profit organization committed to enhancing education for underprivileged children. The organization had been operating with an outdated WordPress website that was causing frequent crashes and rendering the website difficult to edit. They sought a comprehensive solution to rebuild their website, ensuring it remained stable, user-friendly, and compatible with the latest web technologies.
The outdated WordPress website was not compatible with the newest version of PHP, leading to frequent crashes and making content updates challenging. Additionally, the website’s branding and content needed an overhaul to better reflect Edufundi’s mission and engage its target audience effectively.
Edufundi enlisted the expertise of two specialized agencies, NSDigital Consulting and Surefire Communications, to address their unique challenges comprehensively. NSDigital Consulting was tasked with rebuilding the website, while Surefire Communications oversaw the design aspects, ensuring the branding and content were revamped appropriately.
The project commenced before November 2022, with both agencies collaborating closely with Edufundi to understand their goals, requirements, and desired outcomes. NSDigital Consulting utilized a more reliable and modern WordPress theme to rebuild the website, addressing the compatibility issues and ensuring a stable platform.
Meanwhile, Surefire Communications focused on updating the branding elements and refining the content to resonate better with the target audience and strengthen Edufundi’s message. They ensured that while the design underwent significant improvements, the essence and familiarity of the original design were retained to preserve the organization’s identity.
The revamped website was successfully launched in December 2023. The new website provided a seamless user experience, and the stability issues were completely resolved. The improved branding and content helped Edufundi connect better with its audience and convey its mission more effectively.
By December 2022, NSDigital Consulting had successfully completed the website maintenance and support project for SARAO. The client expressed satisfaction with the services provided, praising the team’s professionalism, adherence to timelines, and the quality of their work.
The launch of the new website marked a turning point for Edufundi, attracting more visitors and increased engagement with the organization’s initiatives. The website’s reliability allowed Edufundi’s team to make regular updates and add new content, keeping visitors informed and engaged.
The collaboration between NSDigital Consulting and Surefire Communications proved to be a winning formula for Edufundi, resulting in a stable, visually appealing, and engaging website. The successful website revamp empowered Edufundi to further its cause, reaching more underprivileged children and making a positive impact on education.
