Who we are
The ability to choose the right idea and option can change the world around us in our own way. The idea of providing computer and Internet facility to Bangladesh's rural population is one such idea that has the potential to transform the lives of millions of rural people in this impoverished country.
Information Technology is the road, which must be brought to the door-steps of the poor. The poor should be given the opportunity to muster the skill to use this technology to their advantage. We must design the Information Technology in such a way that a totally unprepared poor person can immediately get the hang of it without feeling threatened. I am proposing that an "International Center for Information Technology to End Global Poverty" be established to create appropriate Information Technology infrastructure and design suitable appliances for delivering the service to the poor.
-Professor Muhammad [Rotary Presidential Conference 2000 : Dhaka on April 7, 2000]
