Forty recent graduates from the Computers in Homes Waikato programme are now celebrating their newly refurbished computers in the comfort of their own homes. Computers in Homes Waikato ran programmes at Strathmore School (Tokoroa) and Linkhouse/Birthright (in Hamilton) with all enrolled students graduating. Both programmes invited participants from across the community to participate, ensuring the benefits that this programme provides extended far beyond the immediate school community.
Strathmore invited Whanau from three different Tokoroa schools to register for the programme and have provided ongoing support to all these students. Linkhouse and Birthright are two organisations in Hamilton who provide support to single parent families. They have families across the city enrol in the programme, with children representing 18 different schools.
