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.

Our young people need access to the technologies that will shape their futures.
Every $500 donated will purchase and deliver for each student a fit-for-purpose device. Any money raised additionally will be topped up to the last $500 by OMGTech! to ensure all money donated goes to providing laptops.
