Rural Development Trust is an NGO based out of Anantpur, Andhra Pradesh. Judit who was the International Communications Officer at RDT reached out to us through our website in June 2018.

The non-profit had an old and outdated website that was suffering from frequent website downtimes and security issues. The content on the website as also dense and not easily navigable.
We followed our systematic process of guiding the client through different phases of the website project and provided the following services:
Information Architecture Consultation
Custom WordPress Development
Development of a resource hub for uploading their publications
