iPad training to make locals tech savvy

This grant will facilitate workshops to provide iPad technology training for older residents to overcome geographical, information and social isolation.


The Giru Progress Association is a group of local residents who promote their town and raise funds through local fundraising and applying for grants from local government and other organisations. They purchase equipment for smaller organisations and donate to projects that are beneficial to all aspects of the Giru people to improve the overall quality of the village (e.g. donate to construction of a skate park and shelter).
