For the last half of a century, honorable governments agencies, NFPs, and NGOS have worked to fight poverty by empowering populations through education. In the last decade, the social enterprise and impact investing movement has transitioned the focus in the battle against poverty towards creating job opportunities. The Roots and Wings solution to this problem is to end poverty with a two-pronged approach that combines the best of best of both of these strategies and that addresses both education and economic opportunity simultaneously. Roots and Wings is pioneering a new model which addresses domains of childhood, neighborhood, and livelihood - a laboratory experiment which will yield results and best practices that will be helpful for all groups focused on poverty alleviation.
Roots and Wings was a 2013 Blue Drop Awards finalist for Best Fundraising Website Built With Drupal.
DOOR3 recommended Drupal for this project because it has great “out of the box” support for requested features and great integration with outside services such as payment services, newsletter services and CRM.
Perhaps what most noteworthy about this project is that we were able to support an incredibly fast deadline for deployment and meet an aggressive budget by being swift and efficient. The site leverages tablet-focused responsive design and enables staff to post from the field using mobile devices. The site also has light-weigh pages so it's usable even in low bandwidth regions. And, simple donation setup allows self management with minimal technical knowledge. In a nutshell, the site is extremely easy to use by the audience and administrators alike, and it is affordable and easy to maintain.
