For any successful community, technology becomes a catalyst for galvanizing political, social, and economic development. The role of technology in community development is to give power and a voice to people within the larger ecosystem. It enables citizens to create a better future for themselves.
Technology, wisely selected, applied and accepted by the local culture, ensures improved economic and social infrastructure. It serves as an ideal support system that can leapfrog community development programs for the betterment of the society at large.
It is the same with designing offline and technology-based accountability tools, conferences and awareness campaigns, lending voices to the common man, to bolster governance at federal, state, and local government levels.
