DigiTautua - Giving students laptops

$64,770 of $350,000 goal
Given by 352 generous donors in 15 days

Eteroa Lafaele is raising funds through DigiTautua to get students a laptop to ensure learning equity during COVID.


DigiTautua supports Pacific and Māori students to purchase new and refurbished devices as well as collecting donated laptops and distributing these to the students that need them.

DigiTautua is the brainchild of Eteroa Lafele and is a response to the need expressed by her Pacifica Community as a result of the COVID19 lockdowns and the educational inequities arising from a lack of devices and internet in the homes of their young people.

DigiTautua’s first focus is in South Auckland in partnership with the Otara Kai Village where over 700 students and counting have put their hands up to be the first recipients of these devices.
