Hand in Hand is a Christian development agency whose mission is to respond to the needs and problems caused by poverty and injustice overseas.
In partnership with overseas organisations Hand in Hand works to give assistance and support; allowing poor and marginalised people and communities the opportunity to make their own choices.
The website designed and hosted by Enovate Design is built around a central content management system which was key to providing Hand in Hand with a web presence they could easily update and maintain themselves.
The website includes several interesting features; we set-up a Twitter account for Hand in Hand and each post from which is fed onto the website homepage. This allows Hand in Hand to send a text message from a mobile phone, which is immediately displayed on the website homepage. This is a fantastic way for Hand in Hand to publicise their successes when, for example, they have just connected fresh water to an orphanage in Kenya.
Enovate Design also employed Flash to provide a world map and overviews of the projects Hand in Hand support in both South America and Africa.
The individual project pages are a particular success as they marry together all the information visitors to the site may want to know in an interactive and vibrant page. The image gallery along with all content on each project page can be managed by Hand in Hand staff and the gallery images are fed into a dynamic Flash slideshow which really brings each page to life.
