For 90% of the students, this UNESCO
program provided their first opportunity
to learn about the internet and email.
 
The World Genesis Foundation announced today that it has established the first successful internet service connection supporting a UNESCO project in a remote wilderness location in Romania.

"It was quite a challenge to setup the relay stations necessary to enable internet service at the 2001 Atlantykron Summer Academy of Learning, but well worth it. Hundreds of youth benefited from the project with more than 90% of them having their first internet experience and email training at the Academy. This type of educational project develops a fundamental skill that the youth will need to succeed in their adult lives and careers. We are very pleased we could enable this project," said World Genesis Foundation President and CEO David Lewis Anderson.

Based on results of this years project the World Genesis Foundation will continue to develop relationships with additional telecommunications companies to enable continued support for future editions of this UNESCO Program.

The World Genesis Foundation was founded on November 30, 1999 and is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to a vision and mission to "leave no child without hope for the future."  Headquartered in Santa Fe, NM USA, the foundation supports activities worldwide to create educational, scientific and cultural opportunities for youth with a special focus in areas of the world where these opportunities are limited or do not exist.
