Hi Samadhan. My organization works in this area. We empower small Brazilian towns with social technologies (products, methods, processes or techniques employed in order to solve a social problem). Social technologies are usually simple and low-cost, generate a large social impact, and are easily replicable. Check out more @ www.nossacidade.net

As for the "latest technology", we find it difficult for our clients to use. The reason is that they are not used to many of the online tools that we take for granted. In Brazil they do have access to internet but their usage patterns are different. For example, everybody uses facebook but not everybody remembers their email password.

This is to say that I agree with your vision. However, we found out that bringing "old" technlogies, sometimes not from the digital era but that have not fully reached these places may be a better idea than trying to bring the latest technologies to them.
