concept, analysis, web programming
Forma is a non-profit organization based out of Chicago,Illinois dedicated to helping victims of Female Genital Circumcision. As a part of their outreach endeavor they setup a website which was dedicated to informing people about FGC. However, the website was not serving its purpose as it was not reaching as many people as hoped for. In addition, the people at Forma requested for a easy means to add new content/ edit existing content on the news section of the web page - which they considered to be a vital section, engaging visitors with the latest issues concerning FGC. The challenge presented to us was to increase the social outreach of the website. My work with Forma constituted my week long assignment as part of the Alternative Spring Break program at the University of Michigan - School of Information.
Translated web-pages and the addition of a news management portal which would free people at forma from making HTML edits.
