Our congratulations to Olivia Bender and the team at Glen Innes Library. They signed up a total of 38 families during January, making this a new record for a single partner in one month. While most of New Zealand has been on holiday, we were delighted to see 39 of our partners were signing up new families to JUMP, achieving a monthly total of 150 new connections. In January 2018, we had 22 active partners and between them they issued 65 modems. So this is a giant leap forward. If we keep this up, we can easily reach 2000 new connections for 2019, but our goal is ten times this – 20,000!
As at the start of this year, there were 108 active JUMP delivery partners, with another 31 in the pipeline. If every partner connected four families a week, we can easily achieve 20,000! Olivia has demonstrated that she can connect nearly 10 families every week, so do let us know how we can help all our partners achieve this.
