Dr. Ahmed is currently devoting considerable time and effort on the non-profit organization he founded called DoPeace, which is dedicated to educating children in the slums. The low cost approach to effective education using high-tech tools deployed at the very basic classrooms is an experiment that DoPeace is employing the very first time. There are more than 10,000 children in the DoPeace Learning Centers in Bangladesh. The model is now proven to work, and we believe this to be ready for the mass education of children in the slums of the world.
