gate   Summary

       For the GTZ it appears of high importance
       to look at new and traditional ICTs likewise
       as a wide range of opportunities.
       For every social, cultural and financial niche
       the appropriate media, technology or activity
       needs to be identified.
       It has to be implemented and used in order
       to achieve the highest possible impact in the
       context of the overall goal of poverty
       reduction and the establishment of a human
       rights policy.

        “Taking ICT to people doesn't necessarily
       mean that you need to put a computer into
       every village. What you actually need to
       take to is the information that can make a
       difference. ICT is not an end in itself, rather
       a tool that needs to be adapted for local
