Why Associated Although the motif of Be Educated is very pure, but, in my view the action towards progress is a bit slow. I am watching the progress made by BeEducated.org during recent past, and I am sure that the current pace can be accelerated by arranging funds from various other funding organizations. I think funding of BeEducated is still done by local fundraising charity efforts. In my view, if fund is sufficient, BeEducated.org can also help on other important social-fronts of the 21st century, like water quality and  management, environment and ecology, preparedness during extreme weather in the changed environmental conditions, sustainable development, health, etc., and, that too, coping with manageable and balanced regional population. I assure that some method can be developed where all these challenges can be tackled by developing the mindset of the concerned society.
