Appeal 2013: Smartboard for WIRE Training Room

Help WIRE raise $8,000 to install and purchase a Smartboard™ for WIRE’s new Training Room!

Women have a history of making do, being resourceful and getting by with very little, but Victorian women deserve better—certainly better access to cutting-edge technology that will advance their learning. That is why we are appealing to you to help WIRE raise $8,000 to purchase and install a Smartboard™ in WIRE’s new Training Room.

A SmartBoard™ will enable WIRE to

  • Deliver dynamic and interactive presentations for WIRE’s training and public education programs for women
  • Provide easy access to multimedia web content and online networks, such as  YouTube videos, podcasts, webinars, social media, blogs
  • Offer webinars and podcasts of WIRE’s training and education programs including free information seminars and workshops  to women across Victoria

For the first time ever WIRE has its very own Training Room at our new West Melbourne premises. This means having a dedicated space for WIRE to

  • Train our Telephone Support Workers and Team Leaders
  • Run free monthly information seminars for women
  • Conduct professional development training workshops
  • Have staff and board meetings
  • Have an independent income stream generated by hiring out the Training Room and SmartBoard.

Since our move in November 2012, WIRE has painted, carpeted and furnished our new Training Room with desks and chairs to seat 40 people. To fully equip this multi-purpose Training Room, we now appeal to you to help us raise funds to purchase and install a Smartboard™—an interactive and electronic whiteboard that is currently in use in many school classrooms in Victoria.

Please donate what you can—every donation big or small helps.
