I agree. There is a generally lack of knowledge about ICANN in my community.

I guess that depends on what is meant by “promote knowledge” and how you accomplish it. But I’ve never really understood the promotion of knowledge to automatically mean self-promotion, as in the sense of self-aggrandizement. 

But I’d give you they might be more specific about the knowledge about the organization they are talking about, so someone doesn’t use the language to play fast and loose.

It’s probably not bad that somewhere a long the line people might become knowledgeable about ICANN’s role, for example.

I don't see how this comports with the 501(c)(3) rules.  It's essentially self-promotion.

·         projects to enlarge DNS industry reaching less developed markets
·         projects to improve technical knowledge

Those two are fine.
