Abstract

The presented concept for supporting needy children is based on experiences from our site visits to many children homes, schools and rehabilitation centers in various developing countries around the world. We have analysed the Swedish Model for social rehabilitation of children integrated with modern ICT centers as professional resources for development assistance. The standpoint taken is to strengthen the poor and exposed minority groups in the society. In this sense, we argue for the need to combine social action and ICT research in order to get out a full potential of intended ventures in the development world
