The goal of providing basic literacy and education to all the world's people is still the most basic development challenge.
Despite the immense challenges that we have faced and continue to face, we refuse to indulge in negativity or pessimism. We are an organization that believes in empowering people to be their best.
The foremost challenge is that of the knowledge revolution. Economic power will depend on creativity and innovation. Creation of wealth will move from traditional resources to the one asset: knowledge.
Governments should be role models of leadership and improve the utilization of ICT in all the governmental departments in order to improve the efficiency of governmental services and motivate ICT industries.
Business can constitute an enormous force for goodness in society. Through its commitments to corporate citizenship and to the principles of the UNGC, the global business community can continue to create and deliver value to society.
E-Business will become the virtual market place in 20 years.
Human experience throughout the ages has been enhanced through learning, information and communication.
An efficient telecommunications network is the foundation upon which an information society is built.
We call ourselves a capacity building organization; self-motivated and self-initiated capacity building. For example, in 30 years, I don't think I have signed a check for the company.

The information revolution will lead us through a knowledge revolution to the wisdom revolution.
