"In Tanzania we visited the Kitefu School, which we did community service for, and to my surprise there was minimal technology, or what we would typically think of as technology.
What I mean by this is that when you think about technology, you think of cutting-edge computers. But there was non of that at the school we were at. Although the principal had a small, extremely old cellular device, it was only used for emergencies. One of the requests from the princial was to install computers with the money we raised. But there was no existing electricity source. So we wouldn't be able to install computers without that crucial element.
As for some sort of "technology," I saw there were water collecting bins designed specifically to collect rainwater and then purify it. So even though we don't think of that as 'technology,' the community there isn't as developed as other countries like America, so they use older methods.
Since Tanzanians use this method and it is still effective, I would classify it as technology."
