"Social Inclusion Through Technology"

More than 30 years after IBM introduced the Personal Computer, 1,000,000 Australian households still lack access to computers and the internet.  Almost all of those households earn less than $40,000/year, and while many see the social and economic benefits of getting connected, the cost of technology and access to training is a significant barrier. 

At WorkVentures we strive to overcome the inequities caused by a lack of access through projects including:

  • Connect IT - Australia's largest not-for-profit computer refurbishment program
  • iGetIT! - Computer training for indigenous youth running in the Northern Territory
  • i.settle.with.IT! - Computer training for migrants & refugees
  • OurConnect Centre at Airds in the Campbelltown area
