Websites by Cosmic: Ilamula House

20th January 2015

Christmas has now passed, and with a new year comes another new website by Cosmic.

We were delighted to get the opportunity to work with South Africa based charity “The Winnie Mabaso Foundation” by providing them with a new responsive, content management system website for Ilamula House.

Who are The Winnie Mabaso Foundation?

“The Winnie Mabaso Foundation began in 2004 – supporting vulnerable and orphaned children in South Africa.

After 10 years of working in the informal settlements, townships and squatter camps of South Africa, The Winnie Mabaso Foundation were delighted to open Ilamula House: A bright, sunny, loving environment which will provide a home for 20 little girls from the ages of 2-13.”

What did they need?

Lisa Ashton MBE and the Winnie Mabaso team came to Cosmic in need of a new, refreshing website for Ilamula House, as they did not currently have a website dedicated to the cause.

Ilamula House required a simple yet effective website to showcase the great work the team have been doing – this includes profiles of staff, trustees, patrons and ambassadors, as well as information on how you can help, the ability to donate via Virgin Giving, latest news and an extensive photo gallery using the wonderful photography supplied by Lisa.

Cosmic created a light themed responsive CMS website made in the popular CMS platform ‘WordPress. The website is designed to work perfectly with both computers and mobile devices for maximum impact.

What did Lisa and the team say about Cosmic’s work?

Lisa Ashton MBE, Founder and CEO of The Winnie Mabaso Foundation said the following about Cosmic’s work on the new website for Ilamula House:

“Despite it not being face to face, just telephone and email Cosmic understood exactly what I required and made some enormously helpful suggestions.

I am overjoyed at the website that Cosmic have built for us.  Not only did they understand what we required but they made useful suggestions that have made the site even better than I dreamed it would be.  Jamie was a delight to work with.  Fast, efficient, creative, enthusiastic and it was an absolute joy to work with him - I can't rate him highly enough.”
