20/20 Trust is saddened by the news that e-Learning Porirua had made the decision to close. The Porirua based Trust has been a partner with 20/20 Trust since 2001, working on the delivery of Digital Inclusion programmes. Their work has made a huge difference to the people of Porirua – equipping almost 3,000 families with the access, skills and confidence to fully participate in the digital world.
As well as the impact on learners, e-Learning Porirua were an essential member of the Digital Inclusion community, contributing ideas, insight and advice that enabled other organisations throughout Aotearoa to learn from their experience. Ministers chose their training hub to make an announcement of Computers in Homes funding in 2013.
We value the work of everyone that has been associated with eLearning Porirua and particularly acknowledge the leadership of Graham Kelly and Tim Davies-Colley.
