Digital Future Aotearoa

Digital Future Aotearoa is on a mission to close the digital divide. We inspire tamariki and rangatahi to be creators of digital technology so they can thrive in our increasingly digital world.

Over 50 givers have collectively raised $35,873.81 for Digital Future Aotearoa. That has helped bridge the digital divide by recycling devices, teaching kids to code and diverting e-waste from landfill.

What We Do.

Digital Future Aotearoa builds the digital capability of Aotearoa by delivering relevant and inspiring digital technology education and access to tamariki, rangatahi, ākonga and kaiako both in and out of the classroom. 

Code Club Aotearoa is a free, volunteer-led coding club network for kiwi kids aged 7-13. Over 400 clubs across the motu have 4,000 tamariki learning to code each week! Tamariki learn to code, problem solve and work together on authentically Aotearoa projects.

Recycle A Device (RAD) gets laptops to where they’re needed most while developing the tech engineering skills of rangatahi. Having a laptop is critical to accessing education, services and to participate in daily life, and RAD does this by encouraging kaitiakitanga. RAD sources unwanted laptops and diverts them from e-waste, rangatahi refurbish them, and then these fit-for-purpose laptops are gifted to whānau who need them most.

DFA believes that sparking an interest in digital technology at a young age is a catalyst for a positive relationship to technology that our tamariki take with them throughout life. As our world becomes increasingly digital and digital inclusion becomes essential for participation in our modern society and economy, we encourage our young people to not only be digitally literate but also move from being consumers to creators of technology so they can thrive.

How it Works

Choose your charities

We’ve partnered with 15 trusted Kiwi-based charities. Choose one, some, or all. Tell us how much you want to give and how often. Set up once, then we’ll do the rest. Easy!

100% to charity

When you donate to a charity via One Percent Collective, a dollar given is a dollar received. The charity gets 100% of your donations. We don't take a cut.

See your impact

We’ll make sure you know what your dollars are doing. The difference they're making, the lives they're changing, and the stories they're creating.*

Don't just take our word for it.

I like the cause, the simplicity, and the flexibility of One Percent Collective. Keep up the great work!
