The LiteHaus journey has grown from humble origins. Once upon a time, we transported our devices in our project team's suitcases! Now, we have well and truly entered our container age, with one of the most renowned brands in Papua New Guinea, the Sir Brian Bell Foundation, sponsoring an entire container of digital devices. These devices are now installed into ground-breaking computer labs in 20 primary schools across the Western Highlands Province.
Similarly, ExxonMobil PNG partnered with us to establish 27 computer labs in Hela Province, where 98% of the population has never seen a computer in their lives. Funded by a $140,000 investment, we have been able to place digital learning tools at the fingertips of 13,000 students and teachers across four regions in the province.
Corporate social responsibility goes beyond investments for social good, and our corporate supporters prove it. Each year in Australia, more than 500,000 computers end up in landfill, primarily from corporate e-waste. This contributes to pollution and environmental degradation. Responsibly disposing of end-of-life digital assets presents a challenge for environmentally-conscious corporates. So why not make an impact with them instead of throwing them away?
We have partnered with the global leader in IT asset lifecycle services, TES-AMM, to provide an avenue for corporates to sustainably dispose of their end-of-life digital assets while being assured that the highest level of data destruction will be maintained. Corporates such as QIC, Townsville Enterprise, Iress, DXC Technology, Sonic Healthcare and dozens of others have donated their devices to our cause.

These devices will help us tackle digital inequality across Papua New Guinea and regional Australia. With this latest collection, we have repurposed over 10,000 devices since 2021. By repurposing e-waste, we are not only bridging the digital divide but have also prevented the release of 334 tons of atmospheric CO2 emissions since 2017. Listen to Anthony Tully-Smith, ICT BAM at Brisbane Airport Corporation, describe his experience donating to LiteHaus International. If you, your business, or your school has devices to dispose of, reach out and join us on our social and environmental missions.
