Cwin-nepal.org is the
official website of Child Workers in Nepal
Concerned Centre (CWIN). Since the mid-eighties,
CWIN has been one of the first organizations
in Nepal to fight for the rights of children
and fight against the exploitation of child
labor. Cwin-nepal.org not only gives information
about the works of the organization but
also provides a very good resource on the
topic of children's rights in Nepal.
and user friendly aspect of the website
is its multilingual support. You can navigate
the website in French, German, English or
Nepali. However, the information presented
in each language differs from one language
to the other. The basic website design is
the same for each language, however the
design differs in the German version.
The design of the website
is excellent, even when the website uses
few graphics. I personally feel that the
semi-neutral colors likes blue, gray and
green used in the website not only convey
the message of a grave seriousness but also
provide a glimpse of hope for the future.
The design is very user-friendly to people
with disabilities because it uses text rather
than images for many navigation menus. The
use of text in the menus makes it easier
for visually impaired users with specialized
software to navigate the website.
Cwin-nepal.org is a
perfect example of how a non-governmental
organization can use the power of the internet
and technology to further its agenda. It
is definitely an example for other Non-governmental
organizations to follow.
