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

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.

What would be the top 50 MOOCS that freed access  of action learning of sustainability goals as worldwide youth's most joyful collaboration through way above zero-sum models of wporldsocialtrade? This web makes the cases that the Abed family needs to be youth's number 1 hero to MOOC with - we always love to hear who your vote for number 1 MOOC is -text usa 240 316 8157 family of unacknowledged giant
