Palmerston North Refugee Graduation June 2016

Another successful refugee Computers in Homes programme was celebrated in Palmerston North on the 25th of June 2016.  Five refugee families graduated in style as they completed their computer training at Freyberg High School.  Most of the families had little to no knowledge of how to use a computer and they all worked very hard to make the most of the training.

Thank you to Sonja De Lange from Red Cross for presenting the families with their certificates.

We were very fortunate to have a supportive group come along to celebrate with all of the families.
