    In the field level, it helps us to measure the impact of our efforts and create transparency too. Technology helps to net working and this net works give bargaining power for vulnerable community.
    In the resource mobilization (Fundraising) level, technology assists to net working between the stakeholders and like minds. It definitely accumulates resourse for poor community for their development.
    I really appreciate the new initiative of the meet up and contribute to prepare our migrant’s next generation to involve the poverty alleviation programmes in their country of their origin.
    My interest is how the Post conflict poverty alleviation initiatives addressing through Psycho social needs of the conflict region.

    It was great time and met different stakeholders and their programmes in the meantime how technology can create new space.
    I had experience work in poverty alleviation programmes in a third world country in field level. In the field, we need to mobilize the community and provide resources and create space to take own initiatives to move forward from poverty trap. Causes of the poverty are multi dimensional.
    When we consider poverty alleviation, We need to work in two platform. One is target group (beneficiaries- Poorest of the poor) and another one is support system. We need to mobilize the support system to work genuinely for poorest of the poor.
    In the first world countries (developed countries) resource mobilization is a main activity for poverty alleviation.
    In our first meet up, we were able to learn how technology can impact in poverty alleviation in these two levels.
