An ingenious solution for aid in disaster zones
A. Dara Dotz left the tech industry for the nonprofit world after realizing our widespread reliance on tech may be doing us more harm than good. In response, she founded Field Ready to work directly with communities on the ground in disaster zones and co-develop low-tech aid solutions, repurposing found materials like car mats and broken solar panels. "We aren't going to be able to throw tech at every problem," she says. "Instead of focusing on the next blockchain or AI, perhaps the things we really need to focus on are the things that make us human."
