Wharekahika (Hicks Bay) is in the northern end of the Tairawhiti region. Tairawhiti REAP and 20/20 Communications Trust have come together to bring Computers in Homes to this remote part of the country. 12 community members completed the 20 hour programme at Wharekahika with a further 38 learners completing the programme throughout the region. We were fortunate to also gain funding for a further 50 learners – a collaboration between 20/20 Communications Trust, ECT, Hauora Tairawhiti and Tairawhiti REAP – to support single mums to get Computers in their homes.
