The Appropriate Technology Collaborative (ATC) designs, develops, demonstrates and distributes appropriate technological solutions to meet basic needs of low income people worldwide.
ATC works in collaboration with our clients to create technologies that are culturally sensitive, environmentally responsible and locally repairable in order to improve quality of life. Our programs and designs provide dignity and opportunity for the world’s poorest people.
Our approach to development empowers communities to address needs with local knowledge, skills and resources to collaboratively build “the software” (education, skills enhancement, leadership training, community building, and cross-cultural sharing) and “the hardware” (infrastructure development and income-earning opportunities).

Your help is enough! Just cover your living costs, budget between $350-$500 per month.
We accept volunteers with experience in business or non-profit administration, sales and marketing experience, website work or fundraising. We ask for a deposit of $100 per month to be returned to volunteers at the successful completion of the agreed-upon project.
