The Kianh Foundation
The Kianh Foundation describe themselves as a grass-roots charity founded in 2001 to address the desperate need for improved care and development for children with disability living around the Hoi An area of Central Vietnam. WP Insites founder Steve Hobson, who has an affection for Vietnam and it’s people, has been a long time sponsor of a child – now a young man – who’s world has been changed dramatically by the incredible programs delivered by The Kianh Foundation. Steve has personal friendships with some of the people on the ground in Vietnam who have been involved in the development of the program. When Steve discovered that the foundation was looking to revamp their website, he offered his services, including ongoing managed hosting and maintenance of the website, completely free of charge.
The Kianh Foundation had recently opened their new base of operations and teaching centre in Hoi An, Vietnam. They needed a professional, modern website to which they could refer prospective investors to showcase the new centre. The site was also to be a source of information about the foundation, it’s goals, programs and achievements by means of a blog, then offer obvious links to the various donation portals that exist in different countries.
The Kianh Foundation had an existing website that already contained some good content. Our aim was to use the existing content and where possible expand on it, then add fresh images showcasing the new centre, it’s staff and most importantly the amazing young people who’s lives were being impacted by the centre. A major goal of the new site was to make donating and sponsorship easier and more obvious. Time was, therefore, spent ensuring obvious access to those sections was visible throughout the site.
The Kianh Foundation is a prospering entity that now has plans for a sizeable expansion in the near future. The website has seen a steadily increasing flow of traffic and boosted both donation and sponsorship rates.
