Since October of 2015, our Chief Inspiration Officer of The Inspired Brand, Claudia Miro, has had the honor of serving on the Board of Directors of Manos Unidas, International; a US-based non profit exclusively supporting Manos Unidas Peru.

Manos Unidas Peru, founded in 2008, is a legally registered Peruvian non-profit organization, serving as the first and only private/non-for-profit school for special education in Cusco, Peru.

Today, Manos Unidas Peru consists of three programs:

  • Camino Nuevo – the first private / non profit educational facility in Cusco for special education (est. 2009)
  • Inclusion – preparing students to the best of their ability to be included within regular education classrooms and schools (est. 2011)
  • Phawarispa – a Youth Work Training Program; empowering students to integrate into society through work experience (est. 2014)

Manos Unidas’ original website was full of rich information and great images, but unfortunately it was a bit outdated, so a lot of the content was getting lost. Founder Celeste Marion was ready for a website makeover! Celeste knew if she were to update the website platform to the latest and greatest technologies, integrations, and make it mobile-friendly and responsive, it would create more ease, efficiency and opportunities with her communications and fundraising efforts.

Our main objective was to create a more engaging, interactive, and beautiful space for MUI supporters, donors, volunteers and friends. We aimed to create a platform that showcases up-to-date information about the programs, the kids, and how supporters can get involved. Our secondary objective was to make Celeste’s job a lot easier, by having a website that simplified and streamlined her communications efforts; a key for any nonprofit working with lean support staff and budgets.

We are beyond proud with the end result, and are thrilled to announce the launch of their *shiny* new website!

In gratitude,
