Africa Caucus

The Africa Caucus is a student organisation for people from Africa and interested in Africa. They host events, meetups, treks and trips for their members. They also run the Africa Policy Journal at Harvard and the annual African Development Conference. The club is managed by various academics and students from different Harvard schools. It also provides information on bursaries and scholarships for other Africans looking to study at Harvard.

 

We built a dynamic website for the Africa Caucus to ensure that students are always kept up to date with the latest news from the club. The site is built on Wordpress so it's easy to update.

Ari's Cancer Foundation

Ari’s Cancer Foundation (ACF), established in 2012, is run by 12 voluntary committee members and inspired by the life of a vibrant young lady, Ariana, who lost her battle to cancer at the age of 24. In September 2014, Ari’s Cancer Foundation pledged to help the Adolescent and Young Adults (AYA) with cancer in South Africa and they have already achieved so much.

 

Ari's is a foundation very close to our hearts and we have loved working with Courtney and his team. To promote their annual Charity Ball and to create more awareness for the Foundation and their AYA Youth Booth, we created a full media list for print, online and broadcast media and secured great coverage for the cause. On top of that, we developed and built a new website for the brand.

AFET

Since its inception in 1970, the Ackerman Family Educational Trust has helped over 600 young minds to qualify and start their careers. Some of these include teachers, doctors, dentists, lawyers, veterinarians, surgeons, musicians, businessmen, professors, academics, government civil servants and even a judge. To this day, the Trust continues to contribute to the future of South Africa by helping to educate deserving students who do not have the necessary funds to study. We are proud to work with AFET on their social media and other marketing efforts.

 


Cape Town Policing Forum

Cape Town Policing Forum (CPF), is headed by a volunteer executive structure who work incredibly hard to better Cape Town. The Cape Town CPF has created numerous partnerships with different organisations, from various policing agencies and private security companies, to local neighbourhood watches and communal organisations. Their goal is to bring together all the relevant role players to ensure a safe and enjoyable community.

 

In June 2016, we met with Ryan Morris who wanted to create a website that was easy to use, simple and had all the necessary information community members needed. We created a sleek website that showcases what they do and to make it easier for Capetonians to get in touch with the police and other emergency services.

Conservation Travel Africa

Conservation Travel Africa is dedicated to bridging the gap between conservancy management and community development. They use responsible tourism and travel experiences to raise awareness and support for the preservation of Africa's wildlife. They believe that responsible travel is a two-way street - the contributions of time and energy which overseas visitors bring and, in return, what Africa gives to those visitors - amazing animals, incredible people and stunning wilderness areas.


We are currently creating a style guide, company profile document and newsletter template for the brand. Phase two will be to conceptualise a holistic marketing strategy and work with their team to execute it.

Harvard ADC

The Harvard African Development Conference is an annual conference featuring panels and speakers from all over Africa and the world. It is run entirely by students of Harvard. The 2016 conference included speakers from many different industries including banking, politics, arts and engineering. The one thing every panel and discussion has in common is the focus on development in Africa and what can be done to solve issues in various industries.

 

We built the website for the 2015 conference, and live-tweeted during the event. In 2016, the new conference team asked for our help to update the site for the conference and create marketing material for the upcoming event. We were able to seamlessly help with marketing for this conference over 12 000 km away.
