Information Network Bringing Technology to Poor

Today ends the "10th continental conference being held by the Information Network of the Church in Latin America (RIIAL), an organization promoted by the Vatican communications dicastery. The conference ends Friday."

At its opening in Tecucigalpa, Honduras, last week Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, the president of the Pontifical Council for Communications said
no one should be excluded from the "banquet of culture," and the poor must be given the chance to access technology.
RIIAL is responding to info-poverty, which it considers a challenge in this age of communication.

Eyes are around the world, especially focusing on Africa, which is very disconnected from electronic communication.
