Information Technology (IT) acceptance literature has developed many models that empirically test user acceptance of IT. The most recent model is the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) developed by Venkatesh et al. (2003). Our study extends the UTAUT model by suggesting two additional independent variables, the percieved enjoyment and free access to information to examine the ―intention to use‖ and ―usage behavior‖ of IT. Based on a sample of 154 organizations, the researchers find that perceived enjoyment of using IT is the most influential factor on the behavioral intention to adopt and use IT in the Palestinian NGOs. Furthermore, the findings highlight the importance of free access to information as an alternative communication tool with the outside world in the besieged Gaza Strip.
