"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

Proposal for small rural computer centers that could be used for imparting computer-related literacy and skills to the local youth even as the computers could be used to maintain databases pertaining to locally valued information like irrigation pattern, pest control, soil patterns and suitability for crops etc., as well as to support community health activity by computerizng all the health records.
