The Reconnect Project

About

The Reconnect Project is Australia's first charity and social enterprise committed to closing the digital divide by providing refurbished mobile devices to people in disadvantaged situations. We accept donations of pre-owned mobile phones and tablets in any age or condition, and laptops that are under 10 years old. Each device is securely erased before being repaired or refurbished by a team of volunteers under the guidance of our mobile device repair technician. Through a network of Caseworkers at social service organisations including women's refuges, homelessness agencies, at-risk youth outreach programs and refugee support groups, working devices are put straight into the hands of people most in need, giving them the opportunity to (re)connect with family, friends and essential workers.

Program donations fund:

We want to provide devices to refugee families and asylum seekers so that they can stay connected with their families and engage in online education opportunities. The average cost for bringing a donated device 'back to life' is $200 - which includes installing a new battery, replacing a screen or other damaged parts, and providing a new charging cable and charger with each mobile phone, tablet or laptop. With $10,000 in funding, we can get 50 people (re)connected and continue our mission to close the digital divide in Sydney.
