eRiders - Mission Driven Technology Support for Non Governmental Organizations
eRiders are roving technology consultants who work on a one-to-one basis with a group of related non-governmental organizations (NGOs), helping each organization to develop and implement an information and communications technology (ICT) strategy tailored to its unique aims, needs, and context.
The eRider's primary aims are to help organizations:
* Understand the potential value of ICTs,
* Integrate ICTs into their programmatic work, and
* Enhance the ICT component of their management.
Because eRiders are typically local individuals who have both significant NGO experience and substantial technical expertise, they are able to think about technology from the NGO's perspective. As local individuals, they are aware of the NGO's cultural context and are sincerely dedicated to improving the society in which they work.
