Tech Rocks
Rank: No Rank
"Technology is more than hardware and software, it's a state of being. A fun state of being. The technology in your office is about being empowered, proactive, and successful. It's about setting your goals impossibly high, then using the right tool at the right time to not only meet that goal, but exceed it. It's about recruiting new constituents, really getting to know them, and building a relationship that will grow and last. It's about helping you make a change for the better, in your community, nation, or the world. TechRocks believes that the people that use technology well can do all this and more. And we want you to be one of those people."

The Advocacy Project
Rank: No Rank
The Advocacy Project serves community based advocates for peace and human rights. We give special attention to helping new networks become self sufficient in the use of information and communications technologies. A non-profit organization, The Advocacy Project is based in Washington DC.


Information is the lifeblood of advocacy, and we try to help our partners use information, and information technology more effectively. We do this with great care, because outsiders can potentially do tremendous damage when they impose "capacity building." Imposing aid may be the quickest way to stifle the qualities that are essential for advocacy - commitment, energy, and conviction. As a result, we do not actively market our services. Partners reach us by visiting our website, reading our newsletter, or hearing about us from others.


AP has a network of eRiders in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe and has managed several other eRiding projects in other countries.
