    Flying Kites Global is a 501 (c) 3 registered nonprofit working to help the world's most vulnerable children. We are currently building a children's home in the Aberdare Mountains of Kenya, and preparing to begin work in India. Our approach demands that the care that we deliver must be nothing less than excellent. By insisting on the highest standards of care, our children have the chance to transform not only their own lives, but the lives of those around them. For more information on our model please visit our website: www.flyingkitesglobal.org

    Recognising that much childcare for vulnerable children in developing countries will continue to take place in urban areas we launched our 'Oasis' Program. This sees Flying Kites act as a facilitator to spread some key childcare and fundraising principles with local orphanages. The Yr 3 aim is to create an alliance of small children's homes that can collectively revolutionise how care is delivered. The program is being piloted in Nairobi, with a new program launching in New Delhi in January 2010.

    We want to ensure that this program is given its own identity, distinct from the core Flying Kites model, that will allow us to clearly to communicate to potential alliance Flying Kites recognises the incredible importance of good marketing materials, with a clear, professional, creative website at the heart of those materials.

    We believe that the particular program concept (the notion of the 'Oasis' or a 'Sanctuary') should give great design cues and we want to give a creative designer free rein to interpret our design brief.
