Wresch, William (2009). "Information Technology underpinnings to Amartya Sen’s Capabilities Model: An NGO example from Lima, Peru" Paper presented at the 6th annual conference of the HDCA, 10-12 September 2009, Lima, Peru.

The United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals highlight the value of Information and Communications Technologies in enhancing the capabilities of individuals and of NGOs. To illustrate the value of ICTs in development, a case study of a nutrition program established in Lima, Peru is described. The constant communication between NGO partners in Lima and in the United States enabled project leaders to overcome significant and continuing obstacles to their success. By 2008 the project was able to provide protein-rich soy milk to 3000 children each day. A review of the information and communications technologies used in the project was undertaken and an analysis of their role in participation patterns and power distribution is included.
