It Takes a Village Africa (ITAVA) is a New York City based nonprofit organisation. ITAVA provides free STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) educational programs to school aged children in Liberia.

ITAVA strives to increase the percentage of African girls entering tech and engineering careers in the global workforce through STEAM education. As a web designer I created a brand-new website that puts the people the organisation is working with front and centre. Authentic imagery instead of stock photography was used throughout the site to give supporters and partners a more wholistic view of the impact their support has on people's lives. Since the organisation's existing branding only consisted of a logo and a couple of brand colours, I developed a bold, image heavy look, choosing additional colours that give the site a bold and cheerful look and feel. Besides pages that tell more about the ITAVA's work and mission, there is also a blog that reports news straight from their partners Liberia.

All in all the site turned out great, focusing on the positive impact ITAVA is making on the communities they're working with.
