Child Restoration Outreach Support Organization
CROSO is a non-profit organization helping former street children in Uganda attain higher education.
GovDesign recently published a new website for CROSO, the Child Restoration Outreach and Support Organization. We utilized a responsive, HTML5-based theme on top of the WordPress content management system. Here is the website before the redesign (click for larger image):
And here is the website after the redesign:
This redesign encapsulates several core tenets of our design philosophy:
- It’s got an attractive, modern layout (Highwind by James Koster)
- Top navigation is descriptive without being overwhelming
- Content is displayed in a forward manner – the organization’s news posts are out front and highly visible, and subpages are utilized sparingly.
- Easy access through omnisearch
By building on WordPress, we’re able to take advantage of the latest in modern web design without coding everything from the ground up. The result is a website that’s customized enough for CROSO, but took less than a week of actual coding time.
