The Basic Need for Education
The State of Education Worldwide
Estimates of the number of children with no access to education are as high as 140 million. If one's criteria expand to the number of children who have no practical access to the kind of K-12 education Americans expect for their own children, then the number of disadvantaged children is probably closer to one billion (half of the world's children). This failure to provide practical access to education is the most serious threat that faces us all.
Despite numerous international declarations that recognize that "...mankind owes to the Child the best that it has to give..."1 worldwide education has remained inadequate primarily due to unaffordably high cost, censorship, and lack of self determination.
Bringing Education to Students Worldwide
It is the Willoughby Foundation's mission to:
|To accept an approach to self determined education requires putting faith in the ability of the student to select wisely from the wide range of educational content that will be available. It is the Foundation's belief that this faith can be trusted due to its self beneficial nature when viewed from both a personal and a world economic perspective.
The V∆Delta software platform from Catharon Software Corporation will provide the technology to achieve the mission of the foundation using computer-delivered multimedia interactive instruction
Major funding from Catharon Software Corporation will pay for initial content production and provide computers for content delivery. Each computer will have a scholarship funds credit installed that will allow the student to select the content of their education from worldwide sources.
The Foundation is seeking initial funding to accelerate the start of content production and the development of low cost computers.
