Computer recovery program
Aaron and Andrew have had a long standing ambition to refurbish computer equipment once used by business, and make it available to families facing hardship within the Western Suburbs of Melbourne.
Unfortunately, the pilot program which began in 2015 failed due to the lack of support from the business sector. Many of the machines donated were not suited to the education environment.
Whilst support from the general public was overwhelming, much of the equipment donated was too old and additional funding would have been needed to make the program sustainable.
The concept has not been abandoned and the boys are always looking for new ways to develop the initiative.
