Addressing Poverty with 'Everyday' Tools

I am on vacation this week. Feel free to offer your thoughts, but forgive me if I do not end up responding. Thanks for reading!

Every day items that we might take for granted are addressing some of the problems faced by the poor in the global south. USAID offers a simple graphic that links the item's use in the US, a problem experienced, and how the technology is addressing the problem through USAID projects. As far as infographics go, this one is pretty effective. Of course there is much more to it than a simple statistic and technology, but solutions are being found with ICTs.
