Building bridges of communication to break down the walls of illiteracy ™

The World Nehemiah Project exists to enhance and/or deliver infrastructure to enable Distance Learning and Telemedicine to any area in need. World Nehemiah Project develops and creates a method/system of credentialing the education -ie documenting the degree earned – so the recipients can be viable participants in the global marketplace.

What We Do

World Nehemiah Project is committed to help those in remote areas with little to no access to quality health services and education. We accomplish this by providing a quality infrastructure that would create or enhance connectivity in remote areas. Our team creates strategic, and ingenious solutions to provide fast, reliable and efficient network connectivity and other services.

World Nehemiah Project connects those who need help with those eager to help. Our passion is bringing reliable and solid IT/IoT infrastructures to areas that have not been able to experience the use of technology, – for the benefit of all. These infrastructures enable Telemedicine and Distance Learning to be a viable solution for people where poverty and lack, has isolated them from quality health services and education.

Our Story


The vision for creating the World Nehemiah Project was born out of my involvement in building the Arizona Telemedicine Program. The program was founded by Dr. Ronald S. Weinstein MD, in 1996, at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. The program was a pioneering and award-winning program in the field of Telemedicine.

I worked for the company that provided the network infrastructure for the project. It was remarkable to see the architecture design/deployment come together under the guidance of Dr. Kevin McNeill. Once the core architecture was in place, the true value became even more evident, as it enabled Distance Learning programs as well. The Navajo Nation was the catalyst for this new paradigm.

Upon receiving a grant, the Navajo Nation was able to be annexed to the Telemedicine Program network. Their vision was to create a Distance Learning classroom environment leveraging the same topology and methodologies created for telemedicine.
