Experiential training for unemployed designers and NGOs.
It’s been over a year to create Wopala.org a major challenge between the eyes: we wanted our design beyond help enrich trademarks, social institutions and help small entrepreneurs to realize their dreams to change the world . We start by selecting our scope: we would work for organizations and entrepreneurs with social, cultural, environmental or craft initiatives.
Once defined these principles we wanted to go even further and create an innovative idea to offer a different existing market alternative. We wanted the design to be accessible and affordable to organizations and individuals with little economic capacity, to help create a more robust and meaningful project . At that time we were teaching a course on Website Design Management for Designers unemployed. And hí was reached when the Eureka!
Why not encourage designers graduates unemployment and social non-profit organizations with few resources together to solve their problems?
Designed to make life easier and more comfortable to bring new colors and shapes and now to design a better world. Our work is important but there are many unemployed young designers who have not yet been able to demonstrate their experience and talent.
If you join this difficulties due to lack of resources and social organizations’ need to improve their communication to show the impact of their actions and to make their social objectives, provides the context for shaping our project consists of a training program with the participation of designers unemployed and whose ultimate goal is to carry out a real design project for a nonprofit entity.
The designers will come to your customer, implementing the business side of their work, with our support and monitoring. For the work performed, the entity pays the student’s educational program, getting a supervised project in the real market would have a much higher price.

· Fridays joint project presentation sessions with all designers and agencies are made.
· The entities provide a positive feedback to your designer as well as other projects, so we offer valuable information together.
