brac - girl empowerment creates billion jobs

BRAC Goal 1-5 Developing and Sustainability's world’s benchmark model for crediting girls livelihoods to end poverty (famine), dehydration, illiteracy, cultural and environmental safety &...

The world’s largest collaboration of NGOS – designed round bottom-up economic models that help make charities sustainable wherever practical and which in pre-digital era to 1996  have innovated big data small conditional giving (targeted so recipients graduate round self-sustaining livelihoods which also build communities resilience/self-capacity)

BRAC was Established 1972, by Sir Fazle Abed, previously Shell’s national CEO for the nation of East Pakistan,  within the first year of the new nation of Bangladesh -8th most populous nation, originally poorest. Core to Muslim S Asia bordered to west and north by India and east by Myanmar 


.As a formal constitution, BRAC was founded 11 years ahead of Grameen Bank though the 1970s was a decade in which both Muhammad Yunus and Sir Fazle tested many ideas concerned with empowering village women and their urgent challenges to end their children’s death by famine and by dehydration, as well as failure to develop mind and body during the first 1000 days of infancy

Overall, BRAC’s innovations empower  Bangladesh rural partnership solutions celebrating female networks:

Goal 2 solutions to end hunger pioneered rice science for small landowners with China and sme redesign of many agricultural value chains and food security for mothers and infants

Goal 3 developed rural health service from scratch. Sir Fazle Abed originally went to live and learn ion a 40 square mile area where a million people had been killed by cyclone and war, with all infrastructure lost. Among many live-saving solutions, oral rehydration was the first that brac tested fir replication across the rural nation. Scaling this in partnership with UNIXEF took BRAC’s networks nation wide and empowered mothers and daughters to network health (raising life expectancy from 30s to 60s- and establishing women as economic actors in a culture that had previously treated women as an underclass). Thanks to health service networking the modal rural family size was reduced from 9+ children to about 3 during brac’s first 20 years of generation)

Goal 4 brac was founded round type 2 education which in 2015 NPR estimates to have impacted livelihoods of 150 million peoples – ie peer to peer skills exchange across communities recovering from disaster and continuing with personal development (ed adults ending illiteracy) and development of interconnecting rural communities.  Targeted initially at adults, BRAC’s primary education networks over its first 15 years connected village schooling for rural children- with many of brac’s teachers originating as graduates of its adult program. In billion dollar funding partnership with mainly DFID,  BRAC emerged as the world’s largest non-government operator of schools (primary and pre-primary

 During the pre-digital quarter century, BRAC can be seen to have targeted leading co-creation of the billion jobs that renew communities with focus on goals 1-5. In progressing these goals , BRAC also redesigned the value chain of financial services around women-owned SMEs. It is BRACs form of microfinance plus that offers an integrated model of banking for the poor which stays ahead of big banking's crises

1996: Technology partnerships (including mobile and microsolar) started to be planted in Bangladesh originally around Muhammad Yunus who was also asked by famous people like the Clintons and Queen Sofia to launch the annual millennial goals summit microcredisummit. BRAC took a much longer-term approach to global partnerships it selected.

A Bangladesh end poverty NGO cannot fundraise for international development. Out of the Netherlands BRAC formed a constitution so that it could go international mainly by choosing one (technology) partner who wished to support the development of a specific Muslim nation. Such partnership through the 2000s included Gates Foundation, George Soros (who selected several ;post-genocide nations), MastercardFoundation. Although the Clintons continued to mainly to promote partnerships around Muhmmad Yunis, when it came to last mile health networking they and jin kim and paul farmer found that BRAC was the origin of most solutions

Back in Bangladesh in 1999, Sir Fazle Abed started to found BRAC University. This is a for-profit university but aims to join new universities concerned with develop flagship curricula for the future of public service- The James Grant School of Public Health being BRAC’s first leading case

Technology partners who originally designed experiments with Muhammad Yunus soon found that if digital models are going to scale to bank for a billion or more unbanked, it was BRAC’s total SME design of financial services they needed to partner in Bangladesh. It also helped to focus on this concept to market from 2006 (as by then kit was clear that mobiles would offer universal forms of connectivity unimaginable in 1996). So partners of BRAC developed bkash to become the world’s largest cashless banking system (admittedly drawing on some coding and regulatory innovations that were first seen in Kenya’s MPESA

2008-2012 saw many pre-digital microfinance institutions that had been celebrated in the west fail to complete technology transformations without changes of ownership away from a majority pro-poor base. By 2012 BRAC felt confident enough to stage 2 roundtables at the japan embassy in Dhaka hosted by Sir Fazle Abed and Kamil Quadir on the good news that they now appeared to have sufficient global partners to develop bkash to continue girl empowerment and be the number 1 cashless bank. This milestone was reached by 2016 and in Apriil 2018 Jack Ma’s Ant Finance announced it was joining the partners of Bkash as Ant Finance also wanted to see banking for over 1 billion previously unbanked S Asians, and as Alibaba's Global Business School wants to be sure that its first cases clarify female developments whole truth.

In June 2018,  the UN General Assembly reviewed how the 17 smartest goals of our human race BUT as yet have no financial access to the main liquid assets (300 trillion dollars worth) it was recommended that yet again Bangladesh can be one of the first places to explore how to urgently change this non-sustainable state of affairs

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?
