The Appropriate Technology Collaborative

The Appropriate Technology Collaborative is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is "To design, develop, demonstrate and distribute sustainable technologies that create opportunity for low income people in the developing world.  ATC works in collaboration with our clients to create technologies that are culturally sensitive, environmentally responsible and locally repairable in order to improve the quality of life, enhance safety, and reduce adverse impacts on their environment."

ATC fosters international collaborative teams of students, professionals, volunteers, and clients in the developing world to achieve breakthrough sustainable technologies.  We license many of our designs through Creative Commons to encourage other nonprofits and NGOs to copy or improve upon our work.

Recent programs focus on women's empowerment thorugh technical education and solar business incubation.  Families have better nutrition, children can study at night and women can create handicrafts to sell in local markets.
