About this project

Initiatives of Change (IofC) is a diverse network committed to building relationships of trust across the world's divides. It is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

Its web development team over five years created a family of public and private websites to serve the network's needs.

In mid 2007, the possibility of moving from a proprietary CMS system to Open Source was evaluated.

In September 2007, a decision was taken to move into the Drupal framework. In early September 2008 the new sites were released using Drupal 6. See www.iofc.org and many others

This website carries documentation of this project - for the benefit of the project team, and of the Open Source/Drupal community. Unfortunately, the pressures of reaching release restricted our documentation in the final weeks before the system launched.

If you want to read the story of the project, without getting into too many technical details, there is a special section of our documentation which tells the narrative.
