CSC came to us as their existing content platform didn’t foster engagement with the children they support. It was a ‘proof of concept’ MVP (minimum viable product) that wasn’t exciting for the children to use and didn’t represent their brand very well. Because of its’ limited functionality, it also wasn’t easy to manage for the CSC team, nor was it scalable for the future.
The organisation provides workshops for children on the street that cover a variety of topics – these range from protection from violence, access to basic services, access to justice, gender, equality and their rights. As part of the workshops, the kids are able to access the CSC ‘Digitally Connecting Street Children’ platform in order to build connections with others across the globe.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with the CSC team for a number of years, and were excited to design and build them a secure social media platform – the first of its kind to connect many children who might otherwise feel very alone.
“We engaged The Idea Bureau to build a social networking platform for street children. They’ve exceeded our expectations, creating something that’s well-designed, appealing to children and intuitive to use.”
