Building the future, one school at a time.
Building the future one school at a time
Schools for the Children of the World, or SCW, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building quality schools in underdeveloped countries. Their work can be seen in the form of over 125 school buildings built across Central America, Africa, and the Caribbean. The organization needed a solid new web presence in order to showcase their powerful work, encourage people to volunteer, and raise money for future projects.
A Global Effort
SCW has four locations around the world, making it a truly international organization. We showcased this on their new website to illustrate how impactful their work really is.
A call for volunteers
Volunteers are a big part of SCW's organization, providing a large portion of the workforce at school construction sites. It was important for the homepage to feature upcoming trips.
Making an Impact
Building credibility and showcasing impact is a huge part of motivating users to volunteer and donate. Stats and success stories show users exactly what their money and volunteerism achieves.
A picture of a better future
SCW is an organization of action. With over 130 projects completed in 10 different countries, they have strong results that back up their processes and approach. In order to make this happen, though, they need strong fundraising and volunteer channels. A site that features beautiful, compelling images of work being done builds credibility and motivates users to get involved. Each page of the site includes multiple jumping in points for getting involved, while authentic, striking imagery keeps the user engaged.
A website with purpose
Not all websites are created equal. Some have bigger jobs than others. Some are minimalistic, some are packed to the brim with content and functionality. Either way, a site should reflect the brand it's representing. SCW's web presence does this well - it's a hardworking, informative site that focuses on results without sacrificing beautiful design and engaging functionality.
