Bringing Technology to New Zealand families since 2000
An initiative of the 20/20 Trust
Delivering in areas of greatest need.
We were active in 19 targeted regions and 4 sub-regions in Auckland. All these areas were identified in the 2013 Census as digitally under-served communities, with south Auckland standing out as needing most help. Over the last year we have greatly increased our efforts in south Auckland and now have four coordinators there, with more trainers and support staff.
The demand for the programme greatly exceeded the funding available – we continued to give priority to families in decile 1 to 3 school areas in the most digitally disconnected communities. We recognise that there are many families in higher decile schools who are just as digitally disadvantaged and we include them in other local programmes where available.
