What did Projet Jeune Leader need?

Don helped Projet Jeune Leader communicate their work with a content management system (CMS)-based website, so that they can easily manage and update site content on a regular basis.

Why is this project important?

We would like to overhaul our website to better reflect our new visual brand, and to explain more clearly our activities and objectives in a friendly yet professional format. This will help us to expand our network and to gain stronger media attention. And, we hope that this new website will draw new donors, which will allow us to provide puberty & reproductive health education, and leadership development opportunities to even more young adolescents in Madagascar!

This project will save us $16,822, allowing us to provide puberty & reproductive health information and leadership development opportunities to over 8500 young adolescents in Madagascar.

What did Don have to offer?

I love the Web and have been designing and coding websites since 1996. What started out merely as a hobby and general interest soon developed into something much more. I studied web design and development on my own for a number of years and eventually enrolled with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in order to obtain some formal education.

I love the Web and have been designing and coding websites since 1996. What started out merely as a hobby and general interest soon developed into something much more. I studied web design and development on my own for a number of years and eventually enrolled with The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in order to obtain some formal education. I graduated in 2009 with a 3.93 GPA and Web Design Diploma. I have spent nearly every day since then immersing myself in the various aspects of the field.

I founded my own web design and development company in August of 2014. I provide website solutions for individuals, small businesses and non-profit organizations, including social media marketing and promotions along with basic SEO (search engine optimization). I primarily use WordPress to build secure, standards-compliant, and fully-responsive websites that work across a variety of different screen sizes and devices. In late 2015, I also began working full-time as a web developer for a strategic marketing and research firm that works with clients from all over the United States.

I have expert knowledge of HTML5, CSS3, SEO, and modern web standards, including but not limited to responsive web design. I have strong knowledge of JavaScript, PHP, and user-centered design as well.

Volunteering and helping non-profit organizations through Catchafire has been extremely rewarding for me, and I love the opportunity to share my knowledge with others.

What did they have to say?

Don did a great job designing our new website. He patiently listened to feedback and integrated it into the new website layout. He also provided great, individualized, videos on how to use WordPress so that my team and I can update the site in the future. Thank you, Don for your help!!!

It has been a great pleasure working with Maia on this project. It's a wonderful organization that's doing great work, and I'm happy to have been able to help. Maia had the site content laid out and brand guidelines already in place before we started, which made things easy for me. She was very receptive to new ideas and collaborating to reach goals.
