N4EJ intends to bring ICT-based knowledge to as many Philippine barangays and public schools as possible - thereby bridging the digital divide and connecting rural communities to the world, thus the tagline: Knowledge for Every Juan or in the vernacular, Kaalaman sa Bawa t Pamayanan or Kaalaman sa Bawa t Paaralan.

l How Does An ISAAC Operate? l Internet Service Access and Action Centers (ISAAC) are what used to be known as Internet Cafés. ISAACs will revolutionize the ICafe Concept by bringing at least 10 Core Services that would connect the barangay and schools to development organizations and institutions, the local government units (LGUs), national government agencies (NGAs) and the rest of the world.

l What Is The Role Of The YFM/KKK Program In The Net For Every Juan Advocacy? l Over 112 years ago, Jose Rizal said that the youth are the hope of the Motherland. Taking this prophetic vision of Rizal, N4EJ will now embark on a massive Human Resource Development Program to train, equip and deploy hundreds if not thousands of young people from ages 15 and up to man N4EJs and serve as Youth Community Development Information Organizers that will be put up in rural barangays and schools.

l Beginning from a Core of 12 YFM/.KKK National Council, N4EJ will plant the seeds for National Youth Trainers and Organizers. In the mediumterm, YFM/KKK hopes to set-up as many local community and school-based chapters who will eventually be a strong ICT-based knowledge resource pool to enable the country to create HIGH VALUE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES for export to the world.

l Under the Supervision of then N4EJ Regional ICT Development, R&D and Training Center and through Partnerships with the ICT Industry, the Academe and the Government, YFM/KKK will conduct N4EJ/ Barangay-based ICT Learning Programs to enable rural youth and students to reach high proficiency levels in ICT. Scholarship programs will also be rolled out for highly proficient students who will eventually be encouraged to put up ICT-based micro to medium scale enterprises which will be supported and encouraged by N4EJ

l What Happens 10 Years From Now In 2020? l In 2020, we will see a different Philippines. N4EJs in majority of the nation s 42,000 barangays run by YFM/KKK members, new ICTbased enterprises, hundreds of ICT experts, a whole new and very strong High Tech Industry with high value jobs and with Filipinos working as ICT Expats, exporting knowledge to the world.

l What Does This Mean For The Philippines? l In economic terms, more ICT enterprises would mean more jobs for more Filipinos, increasing purchasing power of millions of households, thereby powering the economy by increasing the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This would mean higher tax collections for the Government, enabling it to bring more basic services to more people. In industry terms, this would mean that more Filipinos are able to export ICT-based products and services to other countries bringing in more monetary resources for domestic needs.

l  In environmental terms, this would mean cleaner technologies, less dependence on foreign oil because of the development of renewable sources of energy, less need for exploitation of natural resources and more efficient energy systems. l  In political terms, this would mean the development of a culture of efficiency among Filipinos, which would now frown on corruption and red tape, why? Because in a culture of efficiency, corruption should not exists as it slows down the delivery of basic services that would need to be brought to the people in able to support its High Tech enterprises and industries.

l  In educational terms, this would mean that public and private schools and the academe would now have to adapt to the needs of the ICT Industry, thus create curricula that supports the ICT Industry. l  In moral terms, this would mean that more people will have access to developmental knowledge, more than that of destructive and exploitative content. Such knowledge could now be used for making applications that provide for closer family ties, greater regard for human development and respect for human life and greater appreciation of God s plan of justice, peace, righteousness and national abundance.

l How Will The Project Be Financed? l Initially, the first 30-50 N4EJs would be privately financed. Ultimately to revolutionize the concept multi-lateral financing would be needed coming from investors, franchisees, OFW resources, government-financing and overseas development assistance.

l This means that, from the resources of say, OFW s their children would be trained to become ICT entrepreneurs, in due time, OFW s would return to the Philippines as jobs and enterprises have become High Value. OFW s would now be replaced by ICT Expats who will become vendors of High Tech products and services that can be marketed abroad.
