    Well, think about basic survival stuff, and how a poor community might have trouble obtaining essential things, and think about ways that technology could be used to help....

    Like, list some ways that technology could help with the following things:

    ** Water supply (potable water)

    ** Food distribution

    ** Shelter

    ** Medical care

    ** etc.

    Brainstorm 3-4 technology-related things for each category, and then do a little research into each thing that you've brainstormed. I'd bet you'll be able to come up with some good ideas that way. Have fun!
