Website relaunch

You may have wondered / you may all have wondered why you have heard so little from HITA e.V. over the past two years during the Corona crisis. Like many other organizations, HITA e.V. was hit hard by the pandemic. However, we were not idle - on the contrary! Our current projects in Ghana have suffered greatly from travel restrictions. Nevertheless, HITA e.V. continued to be active. Karsten Gareis, for example, successfully completed a project that he carried out together with the "Grow Your Dream Foundation" in the Volta Region / Ghana. This project, which was largely funded by the Schmitz Foundations with BMZ funds, tested the use of digital media to promote gender equity and social development in rural areas. In order to maintain contact with our partners in Ghana, we held many telephone calls and video conferences. Much more important, however, was a visit by Birgit Meyers-Carow, who was in Sunyani (CUG) for a study visit to the Catholic University of Ghana, Fiabre, where she undertook preparatory activities for the "1Bed4all" project. This project is currently keeping HITA e.V. very busy. 180 hospital beds are to be shipped to Ghana, distributed there and used sustainably for patient care in the long term. The logistical effort, is tremendous. The project still urgently needs donations. Become a bed sponsor!
HITA programs structured
A lot of time was also used to redesign the club website Our aim was to give you all a better overview of the diverse activities of HITA e.V.. To this end, members of HITA e.V., together with the professionals from CloudMarketing in Hamburg, have developed a comprehensive concept, the main aim of which is to improve clarity: The start page was simplified, content is clearly structured and projects were provided with modern design elements. The project work of HITA e.V. is - as clearly presented on the new website - divided into six programs. 32 projects that we have carried out over the past 12 years are assigned to these programs and described in a uniform manner. Each project has been given a matching logo and is assigned to the respective UN Sustainable Development Goals. However, the redesign of the website did not only include work on the reorganization of the content. Browsing the new website should be fun and provide all relevant information quickly. At the same time, the website's retrievability in search engines was optimized.
Old HITA e.V. website
New HITA e.V. website
Responsive web design, for example, was still a foreign word when we developed the original website years ago. Now, up-to-date tools are in use that allow us to ensure consistent display of content on a website. Here, the layout of a website is so flexible design, so that it offers a consistent usability even on mobile devices and the content is completely and quickly available to the visitor. Accessing the website via mobile devices is a decisive advantage, especially for our partners in Africa. There, most access is via cell phones. The CloudMarketing team relies on WordPress as its content management system (CMS). This also enables optimization for search engines. Equally important for us as an association is that the CMS is subject to constant further development and thus also offers a high degree of security on the Internet, which is a very important aspect for our association work. One final note: re-design is a dynamic process. Not all changes have been implemented yet. In the coming days and weeks, work will continue on the website on an ongoing basis. Let yourself / be surprised! Curious now? Click / click through the website and discover / rediscover HITA e.V.! We hope you are / you are as excited as we are.
