Daniel Yomtobian, the CEO and founder of Advertise.com, is now collaborating with Film Annex in the promotion of the Afghan Development Project to support the Afghanistan Educational System. Mr Yomtobian's contribution is following Bhaskar Ballapragada's initiative. Mr Ballapragada, the president of AdonNetwork, contributed to the Afghan Development Project last May.
A series of corporate backers have already expressed their support to the project, which is growing with over 1.7M month viewers, 17,000 Facebook fans and 16,000 children connected to the World Wide Web. The 3rd Internet classroom will open at Hatifi high school (8,300 students) at the end of June, and will be twice the size than the ones built before. US and Afghan Government representatives will be attending the opening event.
What makes this initiative special is the personal contribution of CEOs like Daniel Yomtobian, and the use of Digital Technologies to contain infrastructure costs and optimize the Return on Investment. The Afghan youth is now entering the global community of the World Wide Web with high quality skills which will make the Afghanistan Economy and GDP grow.
Daniel Yomtobian is a huge supporter of the project and is investing $5,000 in advertising every month. He said about the initiative: “I am a big believer in worthy causes. I’m happy to be a part of this”.
