Six Australian not-for-profit organisations are set to receive expert IT and technology support free of charge, as part of a new community program to be implemented by IT services firm Tata Consultancy Services.

The first beneficiaries of the TCS Australia and New Zealand Pro Bono Community Program initiative, announced in Sydney today, are HeartKids Australia, Cystic Fibrosis New South Wales, Hunter Medical Research Institute, the RoyalHospital for Womens Foundation, the Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre and the Penguin Foundation.

The program offers health, education and environment focused not-for-profits the opportunity to realise how technology can improve their operations’ ability to create a significant and positive impact on their communities and the environment.

The organisations will receive in-kind TCS services valued collectively at over $1 million, in areas such as application and website development, IT consulting and technology optimisation, digitisation and digital transformation, as well as software testing.

Deborah Hadwen, CEO of TCS Australia and New Zealand, said TCS believed “technology has the power to transform our world and by empowering organisations, such as these six worthy recipients, we have the opportunity to strengthen and further support the communities in which TCS operates.”

“Technology can help us effectively address health, social, and environmental challenges, making them a thing of the past. We are proud to be offering our IT solutions and consulting services to these organisations, enabling them to do what they do best – creating a positive impact.”

Hadwen said the TCS Pro Bono Community Progam in Australia drew inspiration from the company’s Pro Bono work in India, where it has leveraged its IT competence to create an Adult Literacy Program and, since its inception in 2000, has impacted the lives of almost 200,000 people across India.
