Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, Drupal, or Weebly . A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an existing temporary website and a NationBuilder account, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have our brand identity/logos, photos, copy, and an outline of content, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to build the leadership of 800 women to work towards a day without violence and exploitation.

We need you to help us end gender violence and exploitation. We need a website that can help communicate the movement and vibrant community that we have and inspire people to join us! We need design that inspires, connects to people, and shares critical info. I hope you can join us by being our web design hero! Our audiences are our membership of survivors of violence/exploitation, volunteers, allies, media, funders, advocates and policymakers. Look forward to collaborating with you!

Our Mission

MataHari: Eye of the Day is a Greater Boston organization of women of color, immigrant women and families who organize as sisters, workers, and survivors for personal and societal transformation, justice and human rights.

What We Do

We develop survivors of trafficking and exploitation into leaders and change agents -- from healing from their suffering into policymakers!

In 2002, MataHari was founded by Carol Gomez and other women of color leaders. Originally known as Trafficking Victims Outreach and Services (TVOS), its mission was to create community solutions to prevent and end human trafficking, family violence and sexual and labor exploitation. MataHari’s initial focus was working with women of color the majority of whom were immigrants whose particular needs were often unmet by traditional violence against women organizations. We managed over 400 cases of women and immigrants suffering a range of human rights violations including labor and sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and domestic violence. Beyond intensive counseling and access to legal, housing and health resources, through case-management, MataHari created a safe and supportive network that women could continue to turn to during their life-long processes of healing from abuse and exploitation, and empowering themselves through individual growth and social action.
