Abstract: The report is about a design of Gema Women’s group website. The group is a self sponsored community development group that provides voluntary services for the less fortunate persons within the society. Due to uncontrollable increase in membership within the group there was need for a fast yet cost effective way of managing the operations within the group. The group consist of members who are geographically dispersed thus there was urgent need to design a website that could act as means of informing the members about the current operations of the group. The main objective was to design and implement a well established and user friendly Website for Gema Women’s Group. This research answered questions like the problems experienced by the organization, the approaches that were used in the design of the website and how the implementation and testing of the new system took place. The beneficiaries of this system were the members of the organization together with the community that it supported. The researcher designed a dynamic and user friendly website for Gema Women’s Group from their head office at Karocha within Machakos district. The research included the board members, ordinary members and the staff of Gema Women’s Group. Questionnaires were distributed to the chairperson, secretary, treasurer and another 5 to the ordinary members of the organization. They were required to fill in the questionnaires and return them for analysis. Interviews, observation and document review were also used to collect necessary information. Dreamweaver application was used to design the system using Php programming language. The researcher suffered the problems of language barrier, short time for development and also the budget was too large. The computerized system designed was efficient, cost effective and simplified method of operation for the group therefore should be adopted by Gema Women’s group. A connection to the web is needed to access the information, which will be impossible if a computer and connection is not available. It is thus recommended that the organization should have an internet connection so that the database is accessible to the administrator. Website security is a broad field, but most websites have common security issues that need to be addressed, regardless of the particular technologies used or functions deployed. Use of authorization and authentication mechanisms like digital certificates and digital signatures should be considered.
