Using technology for development has been part of the development discourse for quite some time now. But, what goes into ensuring that these technological solutions rightly impact and benefit those it is meant for? Our guest today is no stranger to confronting such questions on a daily basis.
In this episode, we have with us Aaditeshwar Seth, who is the co-founder of Gramvaani, which is a remarkable organisation engaged in creating participatory media platforms that people find accessible and adaptable. Using simple technologies and social context to design tools forms the cornerstone of Gram Vaani as an organisation. Gram Vaani's technologies are deployed across India, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Namibia and South Africa where Mr. Seth is responsible for the company vision and strategy, and he heads the technology development at Graam Vaani. In this episode of Technology, Together we draw from his work on deploying accessible, effective technological solutions at the grassroot level.
