HelpAge International is a global network of not-for-profit organisations with a mission to work with and for disadvantaged older people worldwide to achieve a lasting improvement in the quality of their lives.
As part of their strategy to position themselves as the leading authority on ageing and development, HelpAge International wanted a site which could become the ultimate global resource for issues related to ageing.
The current site was hard to update and information within the site was hard to find. Due to these difficulties, the site was under used and could appear inactive to visitors.
Jamkit built an accessible and intuitive resource which is locally content-driven, to act as a hub for HelpAge International’s diverse audiences across the world. The website provides a high quality site search that is both easy to use and highly accessible for all visitors.
Our online service also provides the ability to set up further contributors as required, add new sections and pages and adjust the site as needs change in the future.
In order to emphasise the global nature of the organisation, we supplied a system that allowed international offices to contribute to the site easily.
All experiences, knowledge and expertise gained by staff can now be collected in one place, ensuring that the learning from individual projects is now shared.
‘The internet is a crucial channel for an international organisation like ours, and we’re pleased to have a tool which can support our work so effectively. We can showcase the best examples of our work from all over the world and reach a global audience with our key messages.’
Caroline Dobbing, Communications Officer at HelpAge International
