Using information from Chapter 5, discuss how technology can be leveraged in/through social enterprises to change lives.

Technology is something that can be a great benefit for social enterprises, but the book also mentions that we should not rely on technology to fix all the problems of the world. The chapter talked about how Ghandi accomplished great things without the use of advanced technology. The chapter gave four groupings of how technology can be used in social enterprises. Technology can be leveraged through social enterprises by using simple brick, tile, and water pumps to advanced technologies like laptops, vehicles, and planes. With these new technologies social enterprises have access to reaching the entire world and are not limited by what used to hold businesses back from reaching far off countries. People who never have been able to receive any aid are now having their lives changed as organizations are implementing new technologies in their communities. As technology grows, so does the opportunity to help others.
