Reaching across cultures to transform lives and communities by partnering with women’s groups; empowering and equipping women to break the
cycle of poverty and live into their God given potential.
WEI came to us with a unique situation that required more of a strategic marketing approach before any sustainability model can be put into action. WEI is a 15 year charity that helps build a path from poverty for women through providing tanks for drinking water to business loans in Kenya and was looking to expand into other countries as well as other US markets (other than Seattle). We had to strategically look at them, their brand, offerings and assets to be used to gain a better position in the non-profit world, so that we can then build out a replaceable model to be taken from market-to-market throughout the USA.
We developed an approach that is frequently used by marketers in the retail space that would provide them a more attractive, relatable brand name to be used for marketing purposes, while at the same time built a strategic plan to expand into other cities that would embrace this new model. By making their new brand “Path from Poverty,” we were able to tell a much better simplified story that is relatable to our donor base. We kept the main name as the parent company (WEI) as to not confuse the existing donor base, while at the same time rebranding all materials for future expansion efforts, thus laying the ground work for a US replaceable model.
