The Global Justice Center, a distinguished NGO headquartered in New York, is unwaveringly committed to advancing human rights and justice globally. Through dedicated efforts to foster legal and policy solutions, the organization tirelessly addresses critical issues, empowering individuals and communities worldwide with a specific focus on gender equality and the protection of human rights.
At Outsourcify, we are pleased to collaborate with NGOs, and in this instance, the project encompassed two key facets. Firstly, there was a need to revamp their outdated website, which failed to reflect their growth and activism adequately and struggled to showcase their numerous articles and publications effectively. The second facet involved a technological transition from the Joomla CMS to WordPress. The team sought this shift to streamline content publishing, citing efficiency and a preference for the WordPress interface. This migration was a multifaceted undertaking, involving the restructuring of publication classifications (resources, white papers, fact sheets, legal tools, UN submissions, news, media coverage, events, job offers) and the comprehensive transformation of content, including images and associated documents.
