We need a web designer/developer to merge our 2 existing websites in support of Deprived Communities in Sub-Saharan Africa that will significantly help us to drive sustainable economic growth from the grassroots.
WRBLO is an intermediary organisation that holistically supports small charities and NGO’s ensconced in Sub-Saharan Africa implementing and delivering vital projects and services for the public benefit necessitated by the specific needs of those communities they serve.
Through the spectrum of participation with our Specialised Social Responsibility Programme (SSR), WRBLO harnesses the goodwill of a new collective of integral, dynamic social investors who have a common desire to place social capital and community development on a par with their financial success. As an intermediary, WRBLO collaborates with donors and sponsors, to deliver grant-funding for sustainable social change, that builds economic growth from the grassroots.
Through the SSR Programme WRBLO will identify, verify, evaluate, and fund sustainable projects, services and opportunities that we identify as drivers of social development and financial inclusion and revive economic growth through dynamic integral social investment.
WRBLO will do all it can to guarantee that the SSR programme, is delivered directly into ‘ground zero of poverty’, free of bureaucratic or political interference and the nefarious forces of corruption, fraud or financial mismanagement.
The SSR Programme focuses its resources through small charities and NGO’s who implement projects and services in seven [broad] areas :
WRBLO are especially concerned about three core issues:
Currently, we have two websites doing different things. We have concluded a spectacular consultation cycle delivered to us by 180 Degrees Consulting and we would like to implement all their recommendations. One of their recommendations is that we combine (www.wrblo.org and www.wrblo.com) into one composite website and have set out clearly the optics and strategy that we would like to implement as soon as possible.
We are seeking a Web Designer who can work with PHP/JQuery/AngularJS. and who has a strong background in the mix of front end and backend development and should be comfortable with both. We use Angular JS as the ‘glue’ layer when loading or updating data with the backend, so some knowledge of this would be an advantage. Our CTO can expand on this if required. We use Mysql as our database of choice, and Doctrine as the dbo management layer.
Our systems are UK English and you will be expected to be fluent or have a good command of English as a second language. We are building the systems with the expectation that other languages will be required, the designs adopt a translatable approach.
We use the CMS Concrete5 as our platform so a working knowledge of this CMS would be a distinct advantage.
Much of the African continent is beleaguered with deeply rooted and complex issues which combined have produced enduring, abject, and endemic poverty, irrespective of Africa's natural and considerable deposits of valuable minerals and tradable commodities. as well as any enduring political stability.
WRBLO will begin work in Uganda, being 1 of 6 politically stable jurisdictions where approximately 54% of their combined populations represent 20% of the world's poorest people.
Our Specialised Social Responsibility Programme (SSR) will holistically support small Charities and NGO's who have a track record of accomplishment, working in Deprived Communities.
WRBLO will invite organisations to apply for the funding they need to expand the delivery of effective and sustainable programmes vital to the communities they serve.
WRBLO is affiliated with registered UK charities and local NGO’s and will our own auditors, through whom we network and maintain our evaluation, verification, auditing and reporting capability through digital processes, to provide intrinsic value to our plan which is committed to delivering maximum IMPACT through local charitable structures unable to access much-needed funding in support of the work they do within to Deprived Communities.
If you are seeking an opportunity to make a real and sustainable difference, by raising very many out of poverty onto a path to sustainable futures and to be assistive to those who long to be valued members of society, working with us will provide you with that accomplishment and the true satisfaction in knowing you have contributed to such positive impact and societal change in Africa.
