Company Website Using Responsive Child Theme

African Adventures are a volunteer travel organisation based in Hampshire. Specialising in group trips to Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar, the social enterprise has sent more than 6000 volunteers to assist teachers and help build schools and clinics in deprived communities.

The organisation required a new website to showcase their group trip offerings, their destination countries, and their company ethos. The website developed further over several years as new functionality was required including the creation of bespoke landing pages for each group trip that was launched to enable quick, centralised sign-ups. Some of the functionality included:

Advanced Forms

Using an advanced form plugin with conditional logic, and combined with SMTP, Pop-ups, and submission database creation.

Quote Calculator

Using complex conditional logic and step by step form progression we enabled customers to get exact prices despite many variables.

Custom Menus and Footers

Creating custom responsive menus for headers and footers to allow easy contact and clear display of accreditations and policies.

Child Theme Creation

Creating a child theme to allow for significant manipulation without damaging the original theme and allowing seamless updates.

Responsive Design

Custom CSS added to make each page, and the elements within it fully responsive across all devices with particular attention paid to items above the fold.

Testing and Development

Research and implementation of a system of plugins and services for multi-level back-ups and a development area for testing updates and advancements.

Further sections were added as the company became to the United Nations’ Global Compact and aligned its own work in Africa and the UK with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
