Technology in Development - Changing perceptions of how technology can work for the poor.

Liam Morgan has a professional background in manufacturing engineering and subsequently achieved a MSc in Engineering Project Management at Leeds University. He has spent the last three years in Sudan, two and a half of which have been spent with the British INGO Practical Action. During that time he has been working on a range of development projects focused on the development and promotion of appropriate technologies for poverty reduction. Liam is planning to study a MSC in Conflict, Violence and Development at SOAS this September where he aims to continue his transition to the social sciences.

  1. It is difficult to accept when you have done something bad, but it is never too late to
    change your behavior. If you feel that you have lost control and that you don't know
    where to turn, then there are people who can help you. But if you carry on treating
    Narin like this, you are only going to make things worse for yourself... because people
    that know Narin will never believe you.
