World Challenge Design Teams
The Appropriate Technology Collaborative was founded in 2008 to work side-by-side with communities in developing countries to design, develop, demonstrate and distribute affordable and sustainable technological solutions that empower people and promote dignity.
ATC works in partnership with people in less economically developed countries to create world-class, low-cost technologies that solve problems and provide opportunity. We have ongoing relationships with people, villages and NGOs in Guatemala and villages + slum cities in Nicaragua. In 2011 we are started our first project in India. Since our inception our clients report serving over 1,000,000 people and our breakthrough designs (Design Link) have been downloaded by over 7,000 nonprofits, governments and people in 40 different countries.
