OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

DO WHATEVER WE CAN, USING THE POWER OF THE INTERNET, TO IMPROVE
THE ECONOMIES, AND LIVES OF THE PEOPLE, IN THE AREAS WE SERVE.

The foundation of our "Mission" is based on the following FOUR BELIEFS
formed over the past ten years of working in support of our Mission :


1. Of the three principal "forces" in our lives: Government, Religion, and Culture, the greatest change in the least amount of time, can be made through the humanitarian force of: GOVERNMENT.

2. The INTERNET is THE high powered communications and knowledge tool of the world. Governments that are serious about creating more options for the poor, while improving overall economies, must insure that Internet: service, computers, trained and dedicated teachers, are actively working in all schools, starting with schools located in the poorest areas. Teacher compensation and advancement must be based in part, upon annual student tests designed to effectively measures student/teacher progress.

3. Governments must accept that required ENGLISH CLASSES in Colombia and other Hispanic countries are a proven failure. Current methods of language instruction only result in a feeling of inferiority among the general population. PRONUNCIATION is the most important KEY in learning a second language. Students MUST listen and learn pronunciation ONLY from NATIVE SPEAKING SOURCES. There are only two practical options: PC INSTRUCTION using software with NATIVE SPEAKERS, while being assisted by current English language teachers , or the second option, implement an INTERNATIONAL TEACHER EXCHANGE PROGRAM.

4. Governments must take the lead regarding greater use, understanding of, and ways to OBTAIN MEASURED RESULTS from the Internet. Government controlled educational institutions must teach their students how to access and utilize current information freely available on the Internet, such as: A. Quickly and accurately accessing and evaluating information readily available from Search Engines-which contain the WORLD'S LARGEST DATA BASE. B. Teach proper Home Page creation that includes all three Search Engine required elements: Design, Text Writing, and Programing. The RESULTS will be a major increase in the number and quality of visitors to Home Pages. C. Teach the importance of regular monitoring and evaluation of STATISTICS and GRAPHS that can be freely accessed from the Control Panel of all Home Pages. Historically, Home Page designers are taught only "design" with no teaching effort directed towards the importance of HOME PAGE VISITOR RESULTS. Website owners and managers REQUIRE this timely information in order to evaluate the relative success or failure of their Home Page-including ideas where improvement is needed!
