Every year, Café Urban gives back to its local community by developing one or two new non-profit websites pro bono. The non-profit organizations that are chosen are usually startups that need some help, or established organizations that are making a transition to what is for many, a new digital world. The selected non-profits are chosen by George Rodrigues, President and CEO of Cafe Urban. His selection is based on organizations that he believes can make a difference.
For the year 2013, Cafe Urban is proud to present two new pro bono non-profit websites. The two organizations are Interactive Parents Making a Difference goipmd.org, and Biabou Methodist School Alumni bsasvg.org.
Interactive Parents Making a Difference (I.P.M.D.) mission is to influence and alter the way parents interact with their children. With various planned activities throughout the year, their goal to take parenting away from the video games, music videos, broken school systems, and all other negative influences that affects the behavior of our children today. Karen Burgins, the I.P.M.D. founder also writes children’ books, and released her first title “You Must Wash Your Hands” in December 2012. Cafe Urban designed the book for print; illustration was done by artist Stevens Gourgue.
Biabou Methodist School Alumni is a non-profit organization that has been in existence for 5 years now. The organization’s members are all alumni members of Biabou Methodist School from the island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
