Washington, DC, November 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- How does one go about spreading knowledge around the world, at no cost and with the educators and trainers all donating their time and talent without leaving their home or office? CEFE, the Center for Ethics in Free Enterprise, a non-profit education arm of Global Academy Online, DC based university builders, is doing just that. CEFE, the sixteen-year-old cyber based non-profit ethics and entrepreneurship education provider for professionals and individuals is managing the Academy driven project known as the Billion Dollar Project.
Dr. Fred DiUlus first envisioned the Billion Dollar Project thirty years ago. However, the technology did not exist sufficiently to carry out his vision to eliminate poverty and hunger in the world by destroying ignorance. With the low cost of technology and computers today, DiUlus says the Academy CEFE foundation has activated the means to educate anyone literally anywhere in the world. Anyone, anywhere can learn the skills of survival. This, he says, will feed families and grow infrastructure and nations without massive dead-end handouts.
DiUlus has put together over the past 14 years the means to reach out to everyone in the world to help others help themselves through education and training. For his volunteer efforts in developing the Billion Dollar Project and his ground breaking ability to create the first online tuition free university against overwhelming odds, President Barak Obama has awarded Dr. DiUlus the 2010 President’s Volunteer Service Award for his contribution to society and his “…devotion to service and for doing all he can to shape a better tomorrow for our great nation.”
"My hope and that of the volunteers drawn to the Billion Dollar Project," DiUlus says, "is that those we teach and train will turn around and pass it on. We don’t need billions to do this work. All that is needed are dedicated volunteers willing to give their time and talent to reward themselves with the satisfaction they are making a real contribution that will provide real results."
Dr. DiUlus is an online education pioneer and considered the father of online higher education ratings for quality, rigor and value.
