Building ICT Capacity Against Disparity!

 
 Digital Right is the ability of people everywhere to have free and open access to information and communication technology (ICT). It brings forth the empowerment of people through the dissemination of communication, technology and education. People, in every area of our planet, should have the resources and capabilities to develop their own digital infrastructure. In this third millennium, it is our goal to expand the reach of digital right to the developing world whereby narrowing the digital gap.

Digital Right is the principle of producing functional software in the proper way. Presently, software development seems mainly driven by producers rather than by the needs of the community. Too many resources in the ICT sector are dedicated to marketing, sales and advertisement rather than on analyzing the real needs and improving development practices.

Digital Right . Do it Right and Empower the Developing World with Digital Freedom!
