The build of the EchoStars website was the major pro bono work undertaken by Bold Type in 2010.
EchoStars is a worthy charity that raises money to help education children living in the slums of Dhaka in Bangladesh. Their work also extends to funding the Sewing for Sustainability Program for mothers of the children attending the school to help the families become financially self sufficient. In addition, a medical centre is planned to ensure families living in some of the worst conditions in the world can become healthy, educated and self-sufficient.
It was a pleasure working with Rose Figtree, the founder of EchoStars and we at Bold Type wish them great success in their activities.
