The vision of our CEO Mitchell Ross is to create both a pathway to Indigenous prosperity, and a positive legacy for future generations.
Muru Group and its companies share this vision and are therefore actively out in the community trying to make a difference.
Below are some details of the current and future community projects Muru Group is working on or developing for the future.
Muru Group has developed an IT Literacy training program to help educate members of remote Indigenous communities in the area of technology. Muru Group CEO Mitchell Ross delivered the training first hand, with Pormpuraaw being the first of hopefully many communities we plan to bring this program to.
Some of the community members have never used a computer and so one of the goals of the program was to create awareness of the technology and build user confidence, along with teaching computer fundamentals to help create a solid foundation for further learnings.
The second more important goal is to empower participants with this knowledge to allow them to educate other members of the community moving forward and create a sustainable outcome.
La Perouse (Planning)
Muru Group does business with a number of Australian companies, including large corporations. Through these relationships we are developing a program to allow us to receive end of lease or unwanted technology such as computers and printers.
The goal of our IT Donation Program is to refurbish and donated these systems to Indigenous communities for the purposes of education or to help support various community groups and organisations.
It is our hope to include youth from the community to help us refurbish, install and potentially support these computers on a ongoing basis. Where possible, we will also provide school students with a computer to help with their education.
We also hope to identify participants who are interested in further studies in the technology industry and help facilitate their study, leading to better employment opportunities and/or business ideas.
This is a pilot program which if successful we hope to bring to other communities across Sydney, and eventually across the country.
Muru Group has a vision to help create the next generation of Indigenous IT experts!
