About the product

This publication suggests that Information kiosks can be a timely model based on lessons learned from Internet Cafes, placing the focus on using the technology as a tool to deliver information and services to the underserved. Thus, the rural and disenfranchised of the world are given a voice and the prospect for expanded self-determination and the pursuit of a better life, as well as the possibility for a power shift from an elite few to a broadly engaged majority.
