Charities we support
At Virya Technologies, giving back to the community forms an important part of our business model. Here are some of the charities we currently support.
We were approached by one of the team to create a website for Young Indian Futures on a dana (generosity) basis. Young Indian Futures support young people in India to give them an opportunity to study, gain employment, and support their community. We were delighted to work with this charity and will continue to support them going forward.We continue to support and maintain the website for Young Indian Futures, and have held several fundraising events on their behalf.
We were approached by the Friends of Christchurch Park to help with the redesign and hosting of a website for their organisation, which had an existing free site that was not performing. They needed some dynamic technologies, particularly relating to the display of images, using calendars to inform people what was happening in the park, and integration with social media.
The Ogilvie Charities manage several sheltered housing projects across Suffolk and Essex, and administer several funds which support elderly people. Their website was well overdue for an overhaul, and they were keen to be able to administer it themselves.We helped redesign the site, and host and manage on an ongoing basis the website.
Able2UK had been operating for 10 years as an HTML based news portal, and for it's 10th birthday, was to be given a facelift. This project also involved a training element, as the owner of the site wanted to learn about Joomla! and how to create his own sites using this CMS, therefore we also provided 2 days of on-site training.We have since supported Howard in developing the website and encouraging engagement from his many followers. We also host the website.
We initially helped the Abhayaratna Trust develop their web presence and encouraged the use of social media to connect with a wider audience and raise awareness of their purpose, vision and success stories. We now support the charity through a monthly donation, which goes towards supporting Order Members in their time of need.
