A premium WordPress theme by Jetpack

Maisha is a versatile, easy-to-use theme inspired by the beautiful “Virunga” documentary. It offers a variety of customization options, including six blog layouts, two header layouts, and five page templates. This opens up many possibilities to build sites that range from nonprofit and charity sites, to premium blogs, and more.

Responsive Layout

Maisha is responsive and will present your site in the best possible way on smartphones, tablets, and laptops, as well as on large desktop screens.


Stunning Front Page: Build Your Own

We styled the front page template in Maisha with great attention to detail. From the layout options, to styling and typography, everything is made to present your site at its best. The front page consists of four different content blocks that can be combined to create unique looks.


Featured Content

Maisha makes use of Featured Content to add your most important posts to the bottom of the front page, above the footer.


Choose the Best Blog Layout

Maisha allows you to change your blog layout in seconds. In the Customizer, choose between six different blog layouts. You can change the position of the sidebar, select a grid layout, or a full-width layout, without sidebar. Your custom layout also applies to archive pages.

Page Templates

To make it easier to add variety to your site, Maisha offers several page templates:
