The Reconnect Project

Annette Mayne

Annette is the founder of The Reconnect Project, Australia’s first social enterprise and charity dedicated to closing Australia’s digital divide by distributing pre-owned mobile devices, like phones, tablets and laptops, to people in need. She is passionate about creating a culture of repair and reuse in the community and founded The Reconnect Project to address the rise in e-waste and provide a practical solution to society’s widening digital divide. The Reconnect Project accepts donations of mobile devices in any age or condition, which are repaired, securely erased and provided to people experiencing disadvantage, giving them the tools to digitally (re)connect.
