Powering ICT is a program released by USAID that allows for the use of mobile broadband in poorly electrified areas. ICT, which stands for Information and Communication Technologies, is the primary focus of Humaninet, a network of not-for-profit organizations.

The Powering ICT toolkit provides cost-effective means of providing broadband solutions to relief workers in disaster areas, which usually lack electricity and broadband. The toolkit is aided by workers who update information in the as they find solutions.
