BRAC creation of 100 million person rural health system

at time of bangladesh independence there weren't enough trained doctors to serve the cities - the gap was filled by brac training para health workers at a cost of less than 100 dollar per person

also several hundred thousand ladies were trained in such a way that they could sustain a small bsuienss out of each vilage

this was the first massive use of social buisness that has gone on to be the bigest gamechnaager in aid , girls empowerment and alleviation of extreme poverty

by focusing on affordable cures for infant and maternal helath, brac ended massive deaths in infancy - the culture changed so that village mothers no longer were expected to bear 10 children so that 2 boys could survive- this gave vilage mothers the opportunity to develpp their own income generation as brac redesigned at least 10 national markets to include the very poorest

Over the years other health programs have been integrated but the backbone of the whole of vil;lage empowerment across bangladesh can be viewed as the brac village health service- without this would bangladesh ever have become a world leader in partnership to end extreme poverty and all 6 of the top sgds as well as most others

bonus question did brac also create direct cash transfer (aka give directly)?

answer yes

yes the name may have been different but brac did invent this kjind of giving which basically provides evidence to a donor of who gets aid with waht specific result

these days people talk about can big data be colected and small analysus done on it to make sure the aid and solution connect exactly -sir fazle abed's methid was simpler- he lived among the poorest and could experiment until a solution worked

the case in point which came before brac built the rural health system concerns oral rehydration - an infant who would otherwise die of diarrhea can be saved if the mother recogises the symptoloms adn mixes biled water salts and sugars in the right proportion

however peer to peer training of this concept acrioss a mainly illiterate population took several rehearsals- if brac had been a top gown aid organsiation it would have convluded nationawide training of vilage mothers in oral rehydration was possible- in this case unicef was the donor who paod brac for proving how many vilage mothers it had trained

so with bottom up hub desiogns- and two innovative new funding models bangladesh grassroots womens netirks traformed the market for aid - with models that are many times more effective efficient an ex[pandable than anything rich funders of aid had ever seen

this brings us to an inconvenenient questions- are the G7 (rich western naations) used to designing sustainable economic models- the answer if you look at hostry is no - in fact you could asay that the world wars were consequence of colonial economics being non-sustainable - -before tere was colonisation economies were aproxiately the size of their populations- at the height of colonialims aboiyt 10% of the worlds people owned a sixable majority of the whoel fincial economy

the stiry gets mire opeculair -while some say the term economics started with adma smit - most of adams main hypotheses are still today competelky abused by western economists

we should not be surprised that facing famine muhamad yunus tire up the western marcoc=evonomic theory book and took hois clsss outside to the vilages to innovate some solutions

both his gramen bank with its officai constitution in 1983 and brac which started in 11 years earler are wirtyh studying for every market they design to include the poorest livelihoods

Q is brac helping jack ma bank for the billion poorest women?

the answer would apear to be yes- and the fintech ecinomkic model that brac ;pioneered is caled bkash- even before jack ma took a 20% per cent share in bkash no less a judge that bil gates was saying bkash was probably the most promosing solution he had seen and that it could scale to offer digital banking to people who had previously been unbanked because theyu7 could only affors to strat banking with cents

jack is famous for creating lievelihoods with ecommerce and working out how to maimsie SME (chinaese taobao/vilage) involvement in every value chain ecoomerce can reach- he also was the first to use smart ohones to do digital paynets phine to pohone with alipay- so in jack ma and brac we have the worlkd's 2 smartest fintecg netwoirks concerned with unsing fintech to end poverty- what more culd happen when jack ma tours nearly 50 years of bangladesh as the world's number 1 klab for girls end poverty solutions

Q did brac help the UN understand that the 300 trillion dollars of most liquid finance is barred from investing in sustainability development goals as an asset class?

listen to this testminoy at the un june 2018 - the proble with fiacing the sdhs is the west 300 trillio dolars of most liquid assets isnt aloud to be dircted toards anything called sdg - and yes it was seeing how microfimnace in bangaldesh is done with more due diligence than any kind of westrn fiace which dat=red this former wall strre banker to pin this crisis down

Text | Liu Ying

Professor of Economics, School of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University

  Professor William Baumol has systematically introduced the theory of economic growth based on innovation and entrepreneurship into the field of mainstream microeconomics: the first is his 1993 book Entrepreneurship (Translation and Publishing of Wuhan University Press) The second time is the "Growth of Capitalism Growth in 2002 - Free Market Innovation Machine" (translated and published by CITIC Publishing House); the third time is the microeconomic theory of innovation that my colleague and I translated together. (will be published by Gezhi Publishing House).

  These unremitting efforts come from Baumol's regret for life, that is, innovative entrepreneurs are the protagonists of creating modern technology and civilization. Economics lacks a highly abstract mathematical analysis and rigorous analytical derivation. He often quotes the British saying "there is no Hamlet of the Danish prince" to describe the situation in which mainstream economic growth theory ignores research entrepreneurs.

How much credit can be given to entrepreneurship for the unprecedented innovation and growth of free-enterprise economies? In this book, some of the world's leading economists tackle this difficult and understudied question, and their responses shed new light on how free-market economies work--and what policies most encourage their growth.

The contributors take as their starting point William J. Baumol's 2002 book The Free-Market Innovation Machine (Princeton), which argued that independent entrepreneurs are far more important to growth than economists have traditionally thought, and that an implicit partnership between such entrepreneurs and large corporations is critical to the success of market economies.

The contributors include the editors and Robert M. Solow, Kenneth J. Arrow, Michael M. Weinstein, Douglass C. North, Barry R. Weingast, Ying Lowrey, Nathan Rosenberg, Melissa A. Schilling, Corey Phelps, Sylvia Nasar, Boyan Jovanovic, Peter L. Rousseau, Edward N. Wolff, Deepak Somaya, David J. Teece, Naomi R. Lamoreaux, Kenneth L. Sokoloff, Yochanan Shachmurove, Ralph E. Gomory, Jonathan Eaton, Samuel S. Kortum, Alan S. Blinder, Robert J. Shiller, Burton G. Malkiel, and Edmund S. Phelps.

we welocome connections with anyine who is active in wise because they wanted to undersrand livelihood education and the other innovatuons that sir fazle abed and brac gravitated as the firts laureate and alumni summit of iwse

here is a converstion we have been exploring with team leaders around the 6th wise laureate 

Dear Camille Foundation Ashesi (6th wise laureate network)
Probably the best news i have seen this century is just over 2 months ago jack ma of alibaba took 20% share in brac's fintech network which already has gates foundation multiplying its methods in africa
As you know for nearly 10 years now I wanted to make sure that brac and sir fazle abed kept well connected with the future of edutech fintech as well as real world girls adolescent clubs and every value chain we can transform round sme and thriving local communities everywhere goal 11 as well as 1 and 5 etc. I have also copied javeed mary and marta as the 3 people i spent most time with in qatar as we were all looking from different collaboration perspectives (marta i met at wise spain- she designs experiential learning for every child in barcelona international school, javeed a new york educator and technologist whose passion is the future of children in india and i interviewed a lot of the educationforall people who are a permanent hub at the UN for refugee learning, mary is the american who sits on chinese thinks tanks on the future of education as well as eg leading headstart partnership in brazil) though our common denominator is youth urgently need education to value their livelihoods and their only chance to be the sustainability generation
Fortunately we were able to reconnect with jack ma's main academic researcher who amy and i had meet at tsinghua university in beijing. She said she wanted a week tour of girl empowering dhaka so mostofa, brac's director of education dr islam and brac head office are now arranging that sept 30 to october 6 (asd you probably know brac also has a university- whilst its for profit it aims in key schools like the james grant school of public health to offer the curriculum public servants need to do the best job for the poorest)
my understanding is we welcome guests who want the same things for poorest and  girls especially as sir fazle - whether those guests come in person or submit a one pagers which we can get everyone to look at and relevantly follow up- i would still like to see the new university movement in afruca be one core of this and mostifa will renew contact with taddy blecher in s africa - jack ma' scouts through unctad are already filling up places of the first 500 alumni of his new global business coding school in Hangzhou - which is mainly scholarship based - whilst i know kenya and rwanda student streams form part of the recruitment i dont know about most countries though mostofa can probably find out more if you need to know, as i assume brac africa will do too
jack has said that education is the main problem - and from 2020 he will try and focus on it- he knows full well that commerce and finance can get to some markets but not to other ones like education health sports arts cultures and indeed every market that need community building youth and thriving local livelihoods
if you have questions please address particularly to mostofa if he can find out info on the chinese side- and if they need chinese tramslation amy can help too -the wise at beijing i attended was so far ahead on edutech that we still havent begun to help people who only speak english to catch up
thanks chris macrae washington dc whatsapp 1  240 316 8157

Hello Chris,

 

My apologies for the tardy response, and thank you for this exciting update!  BRAC truly is an inspiring organization, and Ashesi remains excited to join them in participating in Accra’s upcoming WISE summit.

13 institutions were represented at last year’s Education Collaborative, but unfortunately none were South African and Taddy Blecher’s was not among them.  This year, the organizers of the Collaborative hope to attract more international participants and make the event truly Pan-African.  The Ashesi University Foundation is located in the United States and is not involved with organizing the Education Collaborative; however, I will inquire about Taddy’s university during my next conversation with my colleagues in Ghana and suggest that he be invited to this year’s event.

 

 

Best,

Camille

M4a nb mostofa attend varney summit where elearning was discussed for refugees- china is ahead on edutech in so many ways -eg instead of amazon alexis it is getting teacher assistants into classrooms- as jack says these know facts mre than teachers- this is why examining children on facts is retarding them from future 
M4b Jack is also on the un eminent committee and on grordon browns’ education commission – while the commission’s 30 national leaders nit officially connected with UN- brown is un envoy for education

MA5 Ying Lowrey also connects many partnerships within Tsinghua main public servant training university- gateway to beoijing startup hib linked with all supercities

MA6 Jack also chairs busininss men club of billionaires who want their market to sustain china- it is posible to go tjrough with yig rfeview every market futures purspoe maximise to poverty aleviation

MA7 Jack has said from olympics on he will focus on taking education as the main challenge- unless we take education outside classroom more than half of youith both unemployable and not aliogned to being the sustainability generation

Jack has many framgmeetd education charities- including those working in Taobao village education – also one of hius obscure foundations a sponsor of wise at Beijing

Also 0.3% of AliBaba revenues put into green fund

Most summers jack organizes a summit in Hangzhou where people like jim kim tirn up regulary – 2017 womens empowerkment – 2016 philanthopy or social business- in octiber world bank issue its main 2018 report - chosen theme livelihpoods

In 2017 China had 5 million startup- many were associated with the 3 main ecosystems Alibaba , tencent, baidu- all ecosystems expected to brief jinping -usually there is annual meeting at tsinghua where public servants meet tech and otthe business leaders

Jinping asked jack to host the china G20 hangzhou- jack spent lot of time with relevant citizen group – women youth sme green finance- these get reactivated when g20 host interested – germany wasnt- we assume franciscan argentina this november is; we assume japan is and part of road to Olympics and anyhow japan remains Alibaba founding investor

Canada has been one of the movers of g20 and trudea has parynered jack a lot – one freason why jack and truedeau demonstrate 3000 person one day taiming masterclass www.gateway17.com

 

MAY 2019 deadline update 100 nations collabortaion Belt Road 2 -China wished to understand which clusters of nations want to partner on which sustainability goals- jack is a leading svout of this- his big advantage is big data analusis applied to small enterprise and redesigning value chains- it would seem that ma, gates and brac are all watching for national partners in big data small -one of the lose ends is Nilekani billion person identity- we need help from tech experts to understand what Alibaba owns that can be key – eg in south asia it still owns the most common type of browser uses cheaper mobiles- in china jack’s fintech and ecommerce keeps ahead on g5 or most advance digital infrastructure- bkash is an interesting blend being targeted at mpt3 and 2?- please note we need to understand how the world’s greatest fintech experts at ant finance and bkash interface with all of jack ma’s and brac partners other interests

i hope it is clear that if someone like mark attends then many of the abpove issues multiply not just across brac and ma but across the UN- even if mark does not attend the issue of how does brac get into hilevel guterres netoirks is an urgent one

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:

Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?

Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race.  Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?

POP -Preferential Option Poor

Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.

Top 10 Right Old Muddles

I was tidying up my father's office when I came across a little black book. It was a diary. Many pages were headed Another Right Old Muddle.  There in not much more text than a twitter profile of a young man. The bottom line was replicated on every page . XXX YYY flew off at 8am and did not return

Dad was one of the luckiest ones. He survived world war 2. While spending his last days as a teenager navigating arirplanes over mkodernday Myanmar and Bang;ades he had a lot pf down time. He had 3 books with him - from adam smit, maynard keynes, and a biography of gandhi. From war he went to Corpoius Chrfiost Cambrodge where he was one of the last to be mentired by none other than Keynes - theleading end poverty systems journalist of his era. In late 1947 dad started righting 45 yeras of leaders for The Economist. Here then are 10 right old muddles we will need to help giorls and boys livelihoods mediate now if our species is to sustain another century let alone a milleenium

leap beyond 10 old muddles

1 value girls - eg brac girls or the most couargeous and loving under 30s gorls entrpreneurs - eg AC Ori YC - have you met a woman under 30 who you'd vote for as matching these extraordinary multipliers of goodwill and action? Or an elder they all wish to be an alumni of - eg sir fazle abed

2 value girls, boys, those born poorest - three ha;ves of the world youth, women, poor- all have less than 10 per cent share of voice in the future of their generation - if your born into all 3 of these categories you used to have less than zero positiuve say- until from 1972 sir fazle abed started to empower vilage girls to buuild a nation - and along the way he interescted 3 times with china who had also gone through the cutiral revolution of girls hold up half the sky. This was good news because the peoples connected by the south and east asian coatsal belts number half the world's population- thio9se that had been most victiomised by Britannia- thise that the books of adam smith, keynes and gandhi provide suffiecnt slues to know how to value sustainability and action networks sdgs - should that be a job worthy of all of us alive tioday.

3 understand that the root cause of world wars was need to end colonisation -whiuch inkconevneintly was how large countriues developed between 1500 and 1946

4 Celbrate belt road trading models that go beyiond colonisation with win-win tyrades 

5 First learn from any period in history when positive currencies or other mechnaisms permitted win-win trading to be mapped- identify the expoemtial balance rising or crashing that history revolved round

6 Clarify the unprecdented chnage that is defing life of the 3 generations mainly responsible for 1946-2030- technolgy's moore law in any forms that grand parent parents and youth could be educating each other one

7 Correct the desin ofault in empire education Adam Smith was forst to clarify- it was never to desinged to avlue youth , their livelihhods, innovation forces

8 Agree that as well as coms tech (digital and real world, human and artifician intelligence) compounding round us - we needed to celebrate chnaging machine and huiman sources of energy  to be renewable amd to keep commons resources like wagter and air clean

9 Understand that the west's 3 main corporate forms and their lawyers needed transfromation if all peoples places are to be sustainable. MOre than that we need to freinds each other helping each other nations out of hostory's system traps. Any media that doesnt do that is fame media'

10 Wherever politicians or their academkic hacks tell you there isnt enough work for youth to do- something is desperatly wriong with the education, economics and valuation metrics being siued. THere is so much work to be done if we are to lap beyong systesm that are expoebntaoly crashing towards extinction. These are the most exciting tiemns to be alive- our family trees of grandparent parents youth are detemining whether tere will be any moore tres

Happy 80th birthday by 100000 people of  BRAC to Sir Fazle Abed

 1 RESILIENCE NOT JUST RELIEF –INNOVATION’s CORE OF BOTTOM-UP DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS

The seeds of BRAC were planted in the efforts of Sir Fazle and friends to assist families affected by the Bhola cyclone in 1970. BRAC was then officially established after independence, supporting refugees to rebuild their lives. At a critical early juncture , we abandoned our focus on relief and adopted a longer-term objective of development, opting to work side by side with community members for decades to come.

We do not ignore emergencies and their impact on people living in poverty. We build community preparedness and grassroots platforms that activate in natural disasters to minimize damage and to channel relief. Our goal is to help households bounce back better.

Better often means changes such as stronger infrastructure or new livelihoods for families that depend on agriculture, for example, and are therefore increasingly vulnerable to climate change.

As Bangladesh urbanizes, we have expanded our focus to include manmade disasters like fires and building collapses, most recently Rana Plaza in 2013.

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

mothers -and this redesgned whole market value chains to be lew in trist for poorest and where necessary eg kids education invented conditioanla cash transfre - ie where donation is given to specific identifiable task - eg scolarships for thise secoindary chikdren who had best results in brac primnary schools

RECAP OF LAST TOUR

 

Happy 80th birthday by 100000 people of  BRAC to Sir Fazle Abed

 1 RESILIENCE NOT JUST RELIEF –INNOVATION’s CORE OF BOTTOM-UP DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

We challenged the global health community by putting the life saving treatment for diarrheal disease in the “unqualified” hands of mothers, and generated evidence that they could use it effectively. We created a community-based tuberculosis control model, expanding over time to become the government’s largest partner in combating the disease.

The growing numbers of people living in poverty in urban areas face serious health risks, including maternal and infant mortality. Our network of healthcare entrepreneurs continues to ensure that women can access care safely, quickly, and with dignity.

Recent breakthroughs in cognitive science have shown that focusing on early childhood development has transformative effects over a lifetime. Pilot programmes are putting this research into action at the grassroots level

The primary challenge of healthcare now is less about access and more about quality. We  are building financial tools to continuously ensure more people can access services that meet their evolving health needs.

 

3 EDUCATION FROM LITERACY TO LEADERSHIP

We started by teaching basic literacy to adults, then realised we needed to start from the start.  We changed our nor-formal primary schools as “second chances’ for people living in poverty especially girls. Our pedagogy focused on joyful learning, incorporating the best practices from around the world.

As students graduated from our schools. We felt a need for creative ways to continue learning beyond the classroom. Libraries offered reading materials, and adolescent clubs created safe spaces and opportunities to teach life skills.

Our focus moved towards quality, with universal access towards education in sight, through strategies such as teacher training and increased use of technology. We proactively recruited students with special needs and expanded our curriculum into multiple ethnic languages to ensure that our schools were successful to all children.

Our ultiimate goal is to build a nation, and for that we need leaders. That is where our focus is now – creating opportunities for youth to take responsibilities in programmes, as mentors, and as teachers themselves. Our university creates even more opportunities to contribute on a global scale.

4 Financial Inclusion

We started by bringing people living in poverty together. We quickly learnt that what they needed most urgently was access to economic opportunities and financial services.

We brought women together into village organizations to organize credit and savings arrangements, and then used these meetings as a platform by delivering a wider range of services.

Over time, we expanded our reach to unserved populations, such as the “missing middle” (enterprises that were too large for the loans offered by microfinance but excluded from commercial banks) and a comprehensive grants based programme for people living with poverty, who could not benefit from microfinance.

We are now building a broader set of financial products, including insurance and pensions, and leveraging the growing ownership of mobile phones to use digital channels for financial services.

5 Market Solutions for the Poor

A fundamental driver is a lack of power – at the individual, household and community level alike... Power dynamics need to change in order for people living in poverty to realize their potential , and they only change when people do it themselves.

We promoted consciousness raising and empowerment from our earliest interactions with communities, inspired by teachings on social movements. We underestimated the complexity of power dynamics though and learned the hard way that we needed to create new organisations, where women could come together in solidarity. These community action groups became important social platforms; for example, supporting health workers who faced harassment for their services.

We widened our work over time to help people living in poverty to participate in formal government structures and leverage public services. We also increased our engagement with public official and village leaders to build wider support for women’s empowerment. These discussions have risen to the national level, where we advocate policies that support gender equality and human rights. Internally we have worked to build a female-friendly work environment and actively strive to recruit women.

Gender equality remains one of the greatest unfinished works of our generation, and an area in which we have to continue changing power dynamics. We still see that child marriage is the norm, sexual violence is pervasive, and women are under-represented in the workforce.

 

6 Changing Power Dynamics

As we began to provide financial services to people living in poverty, we noticed that many rural communities did not have access to markets

We started building value chains, connecting thousands of farmers and artisans to national markets. We focused on silk, poultry, clothing and retail, in many cases the viability of new sectors in Bangladesh. The successful scaling up of one value chain often spawned new livelihood opportunities, from poultry vaccinations to artificial insemination for dairy cows.

Entrepreneurship is also a long standing part of our development approach. Over time we have built a national cadre  of local change agents, usually women, who receive training and support from us, but are paid for their services by their neighbours. These grassroots entrepreneurs distribute a wide variety of products and services, from sanitary napkins to high quality seeds.

As local and global labor markets offer new opportunities. We are supporting migrants to seek and finance work abroad safely,  and equip youth with in-demand skills

 

7 BRAC INTERNATIONAL

By 2002 we had over 30 years experience of piloting and perfecting programs, and scaling them to reach millions. The time had come to bring what we had learnt in Bangladesh to the rest of the world.

Relief and rehabilitation were immediate needs after war and natural disasters plunged millions into poverty in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. We focused on peace and building stability through jobs, education and financial inclusion, continuing to put girls and women at the centre of opportunities.

We expanded into Africa four years later, starting development programs in Tanzania and Uganda. We continued to pilot, perfect and scale rapidly never losing focus on contextualising every opportunity created

Opening now in 12 countries gives us a rich knowledge base to further our work in Bangladesh, while providing us with a global network in which to pilot new solutions for the world’s problems. In 2016, we create opportunities for one in every 50 people in the world...

 CONTEXT FOR 2018 TOUR

NB INDIA BIGGER PEOPLEWISE THAN ALL OF CHINAS OTHER NEIGHBORS

 

Before a tour guide to brac/bangladesh- here’s a brief review of all of China’s neighbors and why the old English Raj is in population terms the biggest of china’s belt road tours and new development searches. Brett’s x times great grand father JAMES WILSON started this tour with Queen Victoria – after founding The Economist to help her debate what was London doing to Ireland (see current pbs episode of Victoria) he was dispatched to Calcutta started standard bank, died 1860 of diarrhea 9 months into the project. His son-in-law Walter Bagehot refocused on English constitution and pound sterling as commonwealth reserve currency with Victoria.

Accidentally the next time The Economist had a sub-editor with east west experience was my dad who waa a teenage navigator over modernday Myanmar in world war2 , who married the daughter of sir Kenneth Kemp whose 25 years as Mumbai chief justice mediating Gandhi ended up writing up legalese of india’s independence; most of dad’s first 20 years  The Economist celebrated the East’s post colonial win-win economies ie japan s korea Chinese diaspora superports (archives) and by 1976 asked americans to celebrate asian pacific china global century as much as their own third century.

online library of norman macrae--

At the time of moon landing dad started his other main dialogue of the 20th C  world’s favorite viewspapre  – Entrepreneurial Revolution – assuming the world was in 1968 destined to spend 1000 times more on commons tech in 2016 versus 1946 would we transform education to sustain all millenials livelihoods or the opposite?

 

ANTICLOCKWISE REVIEW OF CHINA’S NEIGHBOURS, STARTING AT ITS EAST COAST:

1 China’s east coast supercity connection are great : every positive win-win trading future can be dreamed with them : the superports and trains are ready to connect more than half the world’s economy which is how sustainability mapmaking should be with half the world’s people living within 3000 miles of Beijing but crowded in to less than 10% of the earth’s land

 

2 china’s border with asean looks pretty good ( asean with singpaore as its cultural soul is in top 6 development miracles with china mainland , china superports diaspora, s korea , japan , Bangladesh girls)

 

3 Now we come to the crucial corridor Myanmar Bangladesh India Pakistan – all old British Raj; what important to bring 2020 vision to first

Bangladesh is a key coastline – if it had a superport that united all trade interest on china India Bangladesh Myanmar that would change more girls lives than any single superport anywhere

The miracles of Bangladesh and mainland china both started at beginning of 1970s. In fact to start with japan shared rice science in a partnership with brac and china that was number 1 solution in ending famine. However china developed with the diaspora (the 3rd greatest financial power by the 1970s) inward investing in superb infrastructure; bangladesh girls had to build their nation with what aid they could turn into sustainable social business (the invention many people believe muhammad yunus designed but actually brac did. See The Economist article it wasn’t microcredit it was BRAC)

4 Next we come to Pakistan corridor to united arab emirates and thence djibouti to Africa, up the suez and through the Mediterranean sea- the brilliant new maritimne silk road

5 As you continue tour of landlocked neighbors, its impossible for china to make anything much better without mediating Russia’s goodwill. Even the ovetland Chinese Express to west Europe passes through the Shanghai Cooperation neighbours of which Russia is a core dynamic , and which India joins for the first time as full member this year (2 incredible summits in june aiib Mumbai and SCO qingdao)

futureofgirls.com and damocity.net welcomes all open technology heroines...

6.2 Direct route to Moscow – essentially what is the strategic future of Russian and East Europe people  the west  (EU) had first chance to mediate if the fall of the berlin wall had been about more than reuniting Germany

6.3 Direct north through mongolia – quite an unpopulated region but potentially renewable as pivotal natural space

6.4 north east where the dream has always been a runnel across Bering Strait so that north east Eurasia Alaska Canada West Coast usa van all be one supertrain corridor as well people spaces that are totally complementary as sustainable economies if 20th c borders hadn’t been erected primarily by stalin

6.5 Of course the last border challenge: as neighbors turn full circle is north korea- here we have 30 million underdeveloped people ; they too need one superport; this solution can really only come about if russia china japan and south jorea start to trust each other

I welcome being told what stories youth should map differently than above; if I have over-simplified or got them wrong please don’t throw out the brac and bangaldesh superport challenge without looking at it in more detail. 

First if you put a straight railway line from Beijing to xi’an to chengdu to the coast you would almost hit the Myanmar-bangladesh border- at cox’s bazzar which yunus and my father discussed as needing to be a superport with 50 people at the royal automobile club london in feb 2008! Second if you did a railway from chengdu to Gwadar you would almost pass through new delhi thus opening up all the route to emirates : Oman , Djibouti and Adrican silk road, suez and med sea silk road. But third if you review every sustainability goal in terms of which communities face the hardest entrepreneurial challenges you would come back to bangaldeshi girls as still being the SDG17 world's most vital youth partners. If climate goes wrong there will be more initial flooding of peoples along bangladesh coastline than anywhere. Brac has designed an economy where communities and girls networks maximizing their own capacities to build the future. This is the story that all of sheihka moza’s wise partmers can honor as brac was their first educational laureate and now that guterres has asked them to stage the girls and refugee learning summits at the UNGA Sept 2018.

 

Key people in choosing what goes on at this summit are thes ame UN eminent sdg goals panel as aiib is reporting on both at aiib Mumbai 2018 and argentina g20 july 2018. All of brac’s organisational dna is francsican (Paulo Freire) as is all of jim kim’s prior work at partners in health with paul farmer amd george soros. You cant do global last mile health services without brac style networking. Fortunatley jim kim’s last job before he joined the world bank was to make pih’s lab in africa in rwanda with kagame who now chairs the african union. .

So it is that goodwill with china’s immediate neigbors connects through to goodwill in middle esst, Africa, med sea nations (the happiest in the old silk road before 1500 but today the refugee and isis crisis hotspots),  and ultimately brac and girls are at the crossro9ads of a muslim francsican coinfucian fusion of families build healthy economies across generations not vice versa 

 

The G7’s win-lose macroeconomics computes big data big; this is not mathematically correct let alone exponentially sustainable if you refer to Einstein and von Neumann., and it will not produce the human ai  (or the truth media) we now despearately need to celebrate if little sister sustainability world is to be the end game instead of orwallian big brother. These are the most excitiing tiness to be alive. What we do with tech of banking and education over the next few years determines species sustainability.

In 1972 BRAC began as a training network in an area where 1 million people had be killed by a cyclone and there was no infrastructure left- who could reconstuct what; it was always building community self capacity – home and safety  (to this day brac employs more barefoot lawyers than bangladesh has police stations), local food security, local helath security, a jobs-led education system, and villagers own value chains and finance. starting in villages with no electricity and illiteracy; its first primary schools trained women; who then became teachers. The newly indepenentent national government didnt have enough taxes to develop the cities so it let brac be the public self-service of villages. BRAC is the ultimate Paulo Freire action learning network; it scaled across villages person to person to 1996. Then the parallel network yunus started 11 years after brac was first to test mobile and microsolar connectivity. However at its height yunus only owned one third of grammen phone. Brac maintained total ownership of its digitalization – today it connects the largest cashless banking sstem in the workl www.bkash.com – the coding superstars from this are the same bangladeshi americans who started with yunus but now linking mit dubai legatum and Nick Hughes the original coders of mpesa- bill gates networks comes to brac to study how to try to do cashless banking elsewhere. However in bangladesh bkash connects with every network as does brac education. In africa and afghanistan where one major partner per country asked brac to join in, adolesecent girls clubs are the main hub for educational networking ( only one of 10 main moving parts of brac back in bangladesh). Bangladeshi girls empower a fusion of edutech and fintech in ways that every poorest nation needs to benchmark before its has a chance to get to the superhighways of development that China is. So as in a 2006 bangaldesh dialogue paper put it – three giants need to grow up together China India and Bangladesh if you search to achieve the deepest sustainability goals and not to leave the bottom 20% out of the sustainability goals era.

Since 1999 Brac formed a university - its signature course is the James Grant School for public health servants - the first lesson module brac ever scaled across the village mothers network was oral rehydration which saved a quarter of infants lives; james then head of unicef took to having a pack of the sugar-salt mix in his suit and demonstrating it at every royal dinner table he graced...

EXCITING YOUTH ECONOMIES

Our favorite is the new economy of valuing world's poorest girls-  brac, founder Sir Fazle Abed, is the world's most knowledgable network in empowering girls sustainability- started in bangladesh in 1972 its first 25 years of grassroots networking was entirely face to face as bangladeshi girl villagers had no electricity so no telecoms nor other ways of being connected beyond the village;

leapfrog models - when mobile is your first telecom; when solar is your first elecetricuty ; when cashless is your first bank ...

bangladesh was one of the first nations to test how to use mobile with world poorest womens networks; most leapfrog market models can benchmark an ultra goals version that brac has helped linkin - start with www.bkash.com the developing worlds largest cashless bank using mp3 tech

BRAC PRIMARY SCHOOLS 5.3 million girl alumni of BRAC

A second chance at education 
Over the past 29 years, the number of BPS has grown exponentially. We started working in 1985, opening 22 one-room schools and providing three years of schooling up to class 3, which was later extended to class 5. The main objective of non-formal primary schools is to develop a school model for the underprivileged and primary school dropout children, especially girls, to complete the five-year primary school syllabus in four years.

 



BRAC also works with other development organisations to expand education opportunities for disadvantaged children by partnering with them and providing them with technical and financial support to implement BRAC’s non-formal primary education model with changes as needed. These collaboration activities are called education support programmes.

Key features

  • The one-teacher school is operated by the same teacher for the same cohort of children for a period of four years and delivers lessons in all subjects
  • The school hours are flexible and fixed according to needs
  • Children do not pay any fees and there are no long holidays
  • Little or no homework as most of their parents are not capable of assisting them
  • Children with special needs receive corrective surgeries along with devices like wheelchairs, hearing aids, glasses and ramps
  • Children belonging to ethnic communities receive class lectures and course materials in their own languages up to class 2 so that they can overcome language barriers and cultural gaps
  • BRAC develops textbooks and other materials for up to class 3 and government textbooks are used in classes 4 and 5
  • Students are taught about social values and their rights and responsibilities coupled with basic financial education to empower them
  • BRAC primary school graduates are being tracked by BRAC for further study

Mechanism to ensure quality of teaching
A typical BRAC teacher is a woman from the community in which the school is, with 10 years of schooling experience. Teachers undergo an initial 12-day training course in order to repeat basic information on teaching and learning and to enhance their teaching abilities. They subsequently participate in monthly, subject-based refresher courses and yearly orientation prior to advancing to the next class. In collaboration with BRAC University’s Centre for Language (CfL), BRAC provides a two-month long (21 days each) teacher training programme in English to the teachers.

What is the linkage with the government education system?
Bangladesh government has allowed BPS students to appear for Primary Education Terminal Examination which is a fundamental board examination that takes place at the end of class 5.

The effectiveness of this programme was evident when the graduates of the non-formal schools were well ahead of the country average when it came to passing grade for the primary school examination - 97 per cent success rate in 2009, and 99.54 per cent in 2010.

How do we track graduates at secondary schools?
BRAC experienced that its graduates admitted in secondary schools often cannot complete their education due to many critical circumstances. We started the ‘tracking of BRAC graduates at secondary schools’ programme to ensure their enrolment at the secondary level, promote regular attendance, reduce dropout rate so that they successfully complete the course.

BRAC is also regularly in touch with secondary school authorities and other organisations to manage scholarships and full/half free education for BPS graduates.
