Hatua Network, an education provider in Africa, approached us about redesigning their website.

We created a full UX and UI redesign for their WordPress eCommerce website, handling all design and development and project management for the Kenyan nonprofit.

Hatua provides high school, college, and university scholarships to top-performing students from families that can’t afford the cost of education in Kenya.

As a nonprofit, we provided all services to Hatua at a deeply discounted rate and also donated some services pro bono to their worthwhile cause.

Telling Hatua Network’s Story

We also created this PDF to tell the story behind how Hatua was founded, their mission of helping educate learners in Africa and placing young Africans in high-paying job roles.
