This project is investigating the way residents of four rural villages adapted and adopted new and existing technologies during the pandemic to communicate within and across villages to share knowledge and resources, and for purposes of mutual aid. The project aims to explore the potential for new technologies that build on existing infrastructure to support intra-village communications and support.  

The first phase of the study involved data collection through interviews and an online survey with residents, community leaders, and admins of online groups and pages. The second phase of the study will seek to design prototypes to shape discussion around the potential for innovations in the villages to support their needs. The final stage of this will be the deployment of a new system of infrastructure.
