Site Summary:

The information technology revolution has immense potential to improve the life chances of the world's disadvantaged people in rich and poor countries alike, but if they do not receive the special help they need the new technology will widen the gap between rich and poor, the information "haves" and "have nots".

The humanITy Programme will bring special help to disabled people, economically deprived groups and even whole countries which urgently need to be plugged in to rather than locked out of the Information Society. Some people need to communicate with computers without using keyboards; some are intimidated by formal training; others are bewildered by manuals and "help menus"; and some, let's face it, just can't afford the technology or the telecommunications costs.

humanITy is based on the simple idea that commercial companies can best expand their markets by engineering steady market growth through helping an increasing number of people to recognise and enjoy the potential of the IT revolution.

We will establish projects with finance, technical assistance, structure and governance and then keep in touch with them through our humanITy Forum where those we have helped will meet with key donors and experts to share expertise and experience.
