e-ACE Project in Australia: providing language content to integrate communities

The electronic Atherton Community Enterprise, or e-ACE, is Infoxchange Australia’s first and longest running digital inclusion project. It focuses on world-wide communications, alongside education, skills development, improved health and well-being, access to health and community services and employment opportunities. Local information has been made available in multiple languages and residents are easily able to access local employment and training opportunities through the e-ACE intranet, as well as connect with their family and friends on the other side of the world. Without the technology made available to them through the e-ACE project, most Atherton Gardens residents, mainly low income earning, migrants or the children of migrants, would have not been able to access a computer at all.
