Website redesignCommunity Development
You'll have a 30 minute call to discuss the scope and deliverables of the project directly with Ethiopian Community Development Council Inc., and for them to confirm you're a good fit.
Once accepted, you'll be able to get right to work. We will check in with you periodically to make sure you have everything you need.
We would like to re-design and update our website to showcase our strong network of ethnic community-based organizations (ECBOs) that we have worked with to resettle over 56,000 refugees across the United States. We would also like to highlight the future vision of our network of ECBOs as a way to attract and inspire potential donors and partners. The maximum number of refugees approved for admission to the U.S. in a fiscal year (which runs from October 1-September 30) is set by the president and is known as the presidential determination (PD). The FY 2018 PD was set at just 45,000, the lowest since Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980; it was followed by an even lower ceiling in FY 2019, set at 30,000. The 2020 PD is expected to be even lower at 0-15,000. The slowdown in the United States Refugee Admissions Program has meant that our organization has had to reflect on the future focus of our work and ECBO network. This project will allow us to share the future of ECDC and our ECBO network at a time when a great deal of uncertainty exists with our stakeholders and potential donors. This will ensure that we are able to continue to receive funding that supports our work to help refugees and immigrants successfully integrate into communities across the United States. All necessary approvals have been secured to start this project. Initial ideas and concepts have been discussed and are ready for an initial briefing with a design expert.
ECDC works and advocates with refugees and immigrants to lead a life of dignity, attain self-sufficiency, and integrate successfully into new communities. ECDC defines integration as a dynamic, two-way process in which immigrants and the receiving community work together to build secure, vibrant, and cohesive communities.
