New Project Manager for Te Aka Toitū - 22 August, 2018

New Project Manager for Te Aka Toitū Trust, Keld Hunia is pleased to be part of an organisation that wants to make a difference to local communities.

"When I first heard about Te Aka Toitū, I thought great idea - helping students and families from decile 1 and 2 schools have access to affordable devices and connectivity in their homes. A lot of schools in todays environment have digital devices to use at school, but not able to take them home, so in essence, their learning and desire of learning new things gets interrupted. The trust has been successful in fundraising for devices but the biggest challenge to come is getting the homes connected".

Chair of the Trust Lesley Immink, is delighted to have Keld on-board as Project Manager and says "with a background in the education and online technology sector and from the local region (Te Teko), Keld has great networks and intimate knowledge of knowing how to work with schools and families in a respectful and cultural way that encourages participation and learning. With Kelds help we look forward to the Trust progressing in its efforts in getting Murupara and Kawerau schools connected by the end of the year".
