Geekcorps

The World Wide Web for the Whole Wide World

Geekcorps is a field organization which works to bridge the "Digital Divide" by sending volunteers from the high-tech industry to work with small host-country-owned businesses and organizations to incorporate information technology in their operation. Now a division of IESC, Geekcorps operates its own programs.
