THE BILLION DOLLAR PROJECT
Give someone a fish they eat for a day - Teach someone to fish they eat for a lifetime
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.
IN THE BEGINNING
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.
