A new partnership will bring technology and digital literacy support to a northern Sudanese community group.
When you walk into a room full of smiling enthusiastic faces all ready to learn, it’s a wondrous thing.
Leep this week had the privilege of meeting with the Nuba Women’s Group – a northern Sudanese community group based in Seven Hills, to discuss a partnership to deliver 20 generously donated second-hand computers from the Kings School, along with our Tech Mate one-on-one mentoring program.
These are women energised and active within their community, curious and willing, wanting to learn new skills that will benefit them practically and socially.
The enthusiasm and smiling faces we saw bely the genuine need to have help and support to navigate and learn basic computer skills. We are partnering with them to help break down these barriers to technology and through our volunteers support them to get online.
We are so excited to be part of this program, facilitated by the Multicultural Health Program Officer for African Communities (WSLHD), Abulla Agwa. This kind of network partnering allows us to find these communities in need and support them with this incredibly valuable service.
