CIH Waikato 2015/2016 round finishes on a high!
The 2015/2016 year finished on a high for Web Access Waikato / Computers in Homes rohe managing to graduate a total of 105 families from a number of areas across the Waikato region.
It was awesome to be able to work with new organisations such as Kirikiriroa Marae as well as keeping strong ties with those important agencies such as Single Parent Services and Te Whare Kokonga (Melville Community House) who play a pivotal role in providing a number of much needed support services and advocacy to those who need it in the community.
We were also able to run a CIH course at Melville Primary School for the first time which was highly successful and saw 10 happy graduates walk away with their well earnt laptops after completing their 20 hours of computer training at the kura with their Tutor Kaye-Marie McCaskill-Day. The laptops they received were the first roll out of this kind for Web Access Waikato and feedback from the participants since completing the course has been awesome in terms of their portability and being able to access home work sites at the library when students need too. Tau ke whanau!
2016/2017 is already shaping up to be another busy round with another 100 families being supported thanks to CIH so watch this space!
