THE BILLION DOLLAR PROJECT
Give someone a fish they eat for a day - Teach someone to fish they eat for a lifetime
IN THE BEGINNING
The Billion Dollar Project® is an international philanthropic
undertaking to spread knowledge acquisition to the third world without cost to the recipients. This is the only
kind of donation the Project expects from its volunteer individuals and organizations.
Originally envisioned 40 years ago by Dr. Fred DiUlus, the Billion Dollar Project® was designed as a philanthropic outreach for professional participants to help overcome poverty, hunger, and ignorance in the world.
It was, from its very existence conceived as a global project that could harness the power of technology to spread rapid
acquisition of knowledge for those it was least available, anywhere in the world, even in the USA. With the thought
that if the Project could accomplish this, it could do wonders never imagined. The project
is an all volunteer effort top to bottom.
Unfortunately, the reality
in 1976 was that a PC cost at least $10,000 and there was no Internet outside of Academia and the Government and
the World Wide Web for the general masses and the public access to high speed Internet was still decades away. The
hope was that some day the dream would eventually bear fruit
Technology has caught up and coupled with the World
Wide Web and Internet education and program development launching the project, it has been said that it "... just
kind of Ka-Chinged into place.”
Forty Years in the Making
Global Academy (Online), its resources and its associated professionals are dedicated
to blotting out ignorance as far and as wide as humanly possible.
There is an old saying, popularized in modern times by Ralph Waldo Emerson but uttered first, it is said, by the great
ancient Chinese sage, Confucius --- "Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime." Human
beings have been trying for generations to find the key that fulfills this prophesy.
Many have known from
the dawn of Man that it is education and the acquisition of knowledge that is the key. Now, we have the technology and the
tools to deliver the means to cast off the shackles of ignorance anywhere and everywhere, anytime, night or day.
