Joining Voices

Joining Voices is a global advocacy project to promote and support family planning. It consists of two components: Europe and Global South. Barn2 Media were commissioned to create a bi-lingual WordPress website for the Global South component.

The overarching priority for the website was to be accessible to all, with good user experience even in low bandwidth areas. It needed to inspire visitors to sign up for the mailing list, download information relevant to their country and take action.

The ultimate aim of the website was to contribute to improving family planning provision in low and middle income countries, making a positive difference for current and future generations.
