WaterAid is planning a major programme of online expansion over the next three years that will reinforce its commitment to keeping digital at the core of its global operations.
The international development charity aims to increase its current digital portfolio from seven member sites and three country sites to more than 40 sites and nine microsites in the next three years.
WaterAid revealed its plans after announcing that it had entered into a new global web development partnership with the digital agency Access. The Manchester-based company will will be responsible for the development, governance and deployment of all websites and microsites across the charity’s global operations. This will include focusing on digital design, development and project work.
Temina Milovanovic, digital marketing and product lead at WaterAid, said: "Our digital platform is a core element of our entire global operation, communicating the vital work we're doing as well as facilitating ongoing fundraising from all around the world.
"We launched a new Drupal website in the UK in 2017 and more Drupal sites are being rolled out for the countries in which we work. The next phase is to further enhance the performance of the website and develop new features that will bring our supporters closer to our work.
"Continued investment in our digital capabilities will ensure we maintain the high levels of support we provide to those most in need, garnering support from both consumers and businesses to either participate in our events or volunteer."
