The society and technology have always been intertwined allowing the progress of mankind. But strangely, the socio-technological progress of our kind never really accounted for the cornerstones of development like participation, social justice and gender equality. With this challenge as their focus, The IT for Change (ITfC) is working for the innovative and effective use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to promote socio-economic change in the global South, from an equity, social justice and gender equality point of view.
IT for Change undertakes research, advocacy and field work in the following thematic areas viz. Development and Information Society, Community Informatics, Technology Governance, Gender, Governance and Education.
IT for Change is in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
As an organisation which, at its heart, is about using technology for bettering human lives, we wish IT for Change all the success in their quest.
