Jack Growden

Townsville, Queensland

Social entrepreneur, founder

Jack’s crusade to bridge the digital divide started on a study trip to Papua New Guinea’s Western Highlands, when he donated his laptop to a school. Promising to return with eight more, he set up LiteHaus the following day. In March 2020, in response to the rapid switch to online learning, LiteHaus launched its Remote Learning Program. Within the first fortnight, it received 1,250 applications for devices from 45 Far North Queensland schools, strengthening Jack’s resolve to ensure every child can access these essential learning tools.
