Project Overview

Having a working website is crucial to optimizing community engagement and successfully marketing a nonprofit. Having an attractive and intuitive website can increase the profile of an organization, its mission and impact on the community as well as serve as a recruitment and development tool. During this project, a web designer defines and delivers a draft architecture and design options that not only meets the nonprofit’s needs but is also easy to maintain. The site’s design will be informed by research into communication goals, the needs of the nonprofit, and the key audience. From here the web designer creates a design that meets those needs and is built to match the technical capabilities of the nonprofit and can be used by a web developer to create a live site.

What activities will be completed as part of the project:
Analysis of the nonprofit’s desired features and website capabilities, as well as their ability to maintain the site.
Research to populate a Requirements Brief with enough information to inform the creation of the site.
Content Audit, Content Outline, and Content Delivery Plan.
Creation of draft architecture and design options (wireframes, site structure, and visual elements) that incorporates the nonprofit’s existing visual identity (logo), key messages, and other copy.

What activities won’t be completed as part of the project:
Marketing and brand strategy
Social media strategy

As CORRECT Health in Haiti continues to expand its work to serve the healthcare needs for a rural community in Haiti, we are looking to expand our marketing strategy. Included in our marketing efforts will be the development of a modern, updated website. This project would be a perfect opportunity for any design professional looking to build their portfolio while contributing to an important cause.

Chateau is a rural community of approximately 12,000 people located some 20 miles from Les Cayes in the southern part of Haiti. Chateau is situated in the mountains, about 1500 meters above sea level, several hours away from any basic services provided. There are no paved roads in the area, which means that people travel on foot, and people who are very sick often die before they can reach the hospital.

To address a gap in healthcare services, CORRECT Health in Haiti, Inc. was founded in 1998 to mobilize the necessary resources for a small medical clinic that serves the people of Chateau and surrounding communities. With the generous support of CORRECT's donors, the clinic is currently staffed with a full-time doctor, three nurses and a lab technician. There is a small laboratory used to diagnose common illnesses in the region, such as malaria, anemia, water-borne diseases, and HIV/AIDS.

Since its founding, the health clinic supported by CORRECT has provided critical healthcare services to over 2,000 local community members annually, with a focus on maternal and child health. Following the 2010 earthquake, CORRECT embarked on an ambitious project to expand access to potable water for the community in an effort to decrease the prevalence of water-borne diseases, including typhoid, cholera, and chronic diarrhea.


Key questions the nonprofit will need to answer:
What platform is the website going to be designed for (Squarespace, Wordpress, etc.)?
What branding do you already have in place that can be used in the design for the site (logo, color palette, pictures, etc.)?
What is your target audience? Who are your stakeholders?

Description of what the deliverable will include and look like:
Discover Deliverable: A requirements brief that includes a summary of findings from the discovery process and a set of prioritized recommendations for the design of a website.
Design Deliverable: Construction of site architecture (Sitemap, Wireframes, and other elements of information design) and develop concepts that inform the look-and-feel, graphics, and other design elements of the site.
