Nas translates to human beings in Arabic.
MicroNAS is a volunteer initiative that brings information and telecommunication technology closer to people in disadvantaged communities to help bridge the IT gap.
MicroNAS follows a two-tiered approach:
- Infrastructure: Help fix or establish basic IT infrastructure in target communities.
- Education: Help simplify the first steps for IT illiterate persons.Innovation: Help introduce electronics and robotics prototyping tools into target communities.
- Leverage Open Source tools and technologies to spur innovation where scarcity of resources is a problem.
MicroNAS relies on volunteers with professional expertise who understand the threat posed by the ITT gap and who wish to do their part in keeping this gap from widening.
