Phase 2 of inDigiMOB was launched this week, expanding the delivery of digital literacy initiatives and digital mentor support in remote communities across the Northern Territory. Amelia Turner opened the launch with a warm welcome to Country and Mayor Damien Ryan spoke to the importance of collaborations, congratulating inDigiMOB for establishing positive community partnerships.
inDigiMOB is a partnership between the Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA) and Telstra that aims to bridge the digital divide in remote communities in the Northern Territory. To help increase this reach, Telstra donated a brand new vehicle to IRCA for the duration of the project.
