Humanitarian Technology

Humanitarian technology: Technology has been the primary driver of change since prehistoric time. Technology has made yesterday’s laborious processes simpler; yesterday’s expensive processes cheaper; and yesterday’s technology has been the foundation for today’s breakthroughs. Although modern technology is omnipresent in the developed world, even simple technology which has the potential to transform billions of lives has not reached most people on planet earth.

The focus of humanitarian technology is to make technology accessible to the billions who lack them, to innovate processes to remove bottlenecks which hinder socio-economic development and above all explore the most sustainable form of deployment of these technologies so that it satisfies people’s basic needs.
