Desert Flower Foundation website design and build | AWESEM WordPress

Desert Flower Foundation

The Desert Flower Foundation was set up by UN Special Ambassador for the elimination of Female Genital Mutilation, Waris Dirie in 2002, as a platform to raise awareness, organise events and teach people about the practice of FGM.

Desert Flower Foundation

The Objective

The objective was to build a bi-lingual platform to allow the charity to get its message across, sell products and allow for donations to the foundation.  AWESEM was delighted to be asked to work on such a project.

What we did

As the foundation’s resources are all dedicated to the charity work it pursues, it was important from the outset that the site be manageable for the in house team so no resources would be wasted on making simple changes to the site.  At AWESEM we pride ourselves on user-friendly CMS systems helped along by the wonderful world of WordPress so this was always key.  We used a translation plugin to facilitate the two languages required and worked with a payment provider to allow for the e-commerce elements.  AWESEM continues to support the Desert Flower Foundation.
