Project O Five was founded in September 2015 by Kagusthan Ariaratnam from Ottawa, Ontario, as an independent non-profit organization. This initiative raises citizen awareness about global security, international relations, counter-radicalization, and counterterrorism by directing, collecting, processing, and disseminating Open Source Intelligence (OSINT). By utilizing open sources, we extract enormous amounts of strategic intelligence. In its essence, strategic intelligence captivates a bird’s-eye view of bigger-picture issues. This information is essential to formulate policy and defines the hierarchical order of planning and strategizing vis-à-vis political and military objectives, often dealing with national, regional, and international security.  
Motto: “Irreplaceable Intelligence”
Mission: Our mission is to bring about international peace by helping to create and maintain a “State of Global Terrorist Deterrence.”
Vision: Project O Five envisions a borderless world where global citizens are fully engaged, empowered, and recognized as a united force for the betterment of all.
Why borderless world: Much of the Global South, which includes the poor countries of the world, is primarily located in Asia, South America, and Africa. This part of the world is home to roughly five billion people living in extreme poverty, so relationships around the globe are not balanced (Shah, 2009). Income inequality and poverty involve powerlessness and invisibility, including a lack of money, essential nutrition, health care, education, freedom, and personal autonomy. In fact, 80% of global resources are consumed by only one billion who live in the Global North, including the wealthy industrialized countries of Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Australia, and Japan (World Bank Group, 2010). While most industrialized countries are located in the North, there are exceptions; for example, Australia and New Zealand are wealthy countries in the South. As a rule, states in the Global North are democratic and technologically advanced, have a high standard of living, and experience meager population growth (Ravelli & Webber, 2015). Is it fair or justifiable that developing countries must try to survive on only 20% of the world’s resources? Terrorism rooted in a grieved man’s inequality can best be combated politically, diplomatically, economically, socially, culturally, religiously, and educationally rather than militarily alone by uniting the whole global community as one system.
