Short history

#ASKotec; the Access to Skills and Knowledge Open Tech Emergency Case is a resource kit for community trainers, created for mobile field-use where there is neither easy power nor internet connectivity such as refugee camps, low-infrastructure regions or rural areas. Intended as Open Tech for Good, #ASKotec was created through a series of hub development workshops by a community of young innovators intent on bringing skills training and peace-building together in the effort to end the South Sudan conflict.
