Since its inception in 1999, Computers in Homes has involved a team of committed people with energy and vision.
Computers in Homes is a successful programme, providing essential support for parents of school-aged children who have not previously had the opportunity to develop their computer and internet skills to a level where they are confident in helping their children use digital technologies for learning.
The ongoing success of the programme relies on continuing government support and partnerships with local communities. The regional Computers in Homes coordinators and their local steering committees play an absolutely critical role in managing the roll out of the programme in their respective regions. The results achieved are a tribute to their efforts and commitment to the programme.
Computers in Homes is fortunate to have enlisted exceptional regional co-ordinators who provide the energy to drive the programme in their local areas.
