Ten days in bangladesh and china resulted in slices of  great good fortune. Interview with sir fazle abed revealed connections he wants most in world is with jack ma's taobao vuilage ecommerce movements . This is now  the number 1 job creating intervention in our world ofd post-indsutrial revolution. 
Meanwhile in China we found the lady most trusted by Jack Ma to link in millions of students. Lowrey now leads relevant bottom up entrepreneur currcicula out of Tsinghua - Yuxuan's Alma Mater, and is mentored by Columbia Uni's Nobel Lauteate of Small Entreprise economics. 
The Extraordinary Ying Lowrey: in 60s one of china's barefoot doctors; ... in 00s worked for US office of advocacy us small busineess adninistraion  -is mentored by noble economics lautreate columbia universsty edmund phelps; since 2012 returned to china tsinghua university to be ma's main connector with students aliresearch.com and transparent bioghrapher of how his coding systems work; she co-founded us-china entrepreneurs assoiciation and was vice president of san diego chinsese association - her doctiorate in economics was from duke university - she graduated in maths from wuhan university - more at Ma-Lee - book club of readers lof Ma trilogy by professor lowrey Ts...  - i would suggest coordnating inquiries to lowrey through yuxuan that way we can maximise other connecftions we have been advoied to make through tsinghua including johns wolfram alumn there and the former presient of brookings introduction to brookings at tsingua

charmingly most of lowreys triilogy of books on jack ma are co-edited chapter by chapter by different students- yuxuan can you ask any of the folowing students to contact you = Chen Liang, Fang Ruonai, Xiang Songlin, Dong Youying, Huang Lingling, Quan Tao, San Xiaoyn, Kang Lili

 if they have time so we can work out how to multiply their connecdtiosn with ali researchers and Changsha hub of QuarterBillionGirls (QBG)

here is an extract of a chapter co-written by lowrey and students

GRASSROOTS STARTUPS ARE WAY TO EXPAND EMPLOYMNET - chapter 8 of The Ali Baba Way by Sun Xiaoyu. Xiang Songlin, and Ying Lowrey 

 

Ever since Thomas Moore described Utiopia around 1500, people have never stopped aspiring to and criticizing such a Utoipia. IN Chinese, the term is synonomous with a kind of fantasy land. If there is a utopia in the labkir market, what kind of work would people do there?

 

Since the time Ali Baba was founded it has consistently maintaiined a low barrier to entry for people who create startups on its platform. It doesnt charge fees for listing a storefront. It conducts routine training of store owners, public self-policing, convenient supply-chain services, and grassroots financing that is based on integrity capital. These things have enormously lowered the risks of starting up a biusiness. They have made it possible for a large number of people who have little expereibce and no capital and who otherwise would not have been able to start their own buisnesses. Star comoanies have been founded by an extrordinary range of people from students to handicapped people to formerly unemployed people to rural immigrant workers. Their sucecss stories have encpouraged even more people to start up their own businesses which is pulling up employment figures of socuety at large. Ali Baba has therefore created jobs of a whole new kind in the new economy.These are different from old forms of employment in distinct way -internet employment has provided jobs in particular to vulnerable segments of the population. It has served as a force for more equal employment opportunities  and improving social equality in general. The Taobao net e-commerce platform could indeed be called a utopia of real world employment markets.

 

in China of 2011: e-commerce entered a new stage of fast paced and scaled up growth that can be seen notably in 3 specific respects. First websites grew expoenetially in the area of B2C and consumer C2C e-commerce. Second, small and microenterprise use of e-commerce expanded rapidly. Third a large group of enterprises engaged in traditional forms of goods curculation now began a powerful entry into the realm of e-commecrce. In 2013 China's ecommerce exceeded 10 trillion RMB or 12.5% of GDP. It is projected to grow annualy at rate of 35%.

================= more on urgent connections of next 6 weeks race to sustainabiloity
As any reader of Keynes last chapter of General Theory knows, pre-digital economists locked in what future is possible to generate out of any place in expoentially spiraling ways. Therefore this mail is first in a short series on why it is mathematically consistent to argue that borderless sustainability istelf depends more on youth in developing ma and sir fazle friendship than anything the UN on its own can do. Of course our young chienese friends would welcome fixing personal tours to china to anyone who wants to connect their work and optionally become an intercity ambassador to QuarterBillionGirls (if you are conversant with John Von Neumann's worldview its highly likely that he would propose the motion that the 4 most valuable languages every under 30 now needs to speak are chinese, english, ma's system language and abed's system  language). In open spacing this logic, QBG seeks to be  China's leading peer to peer sustainability livelihoods/opportunity network. Back in spring at Sir Fazle 80th burthday party, an agreement was proivisionally made with sir fazle abed's family to offer leaders similar suistaiability adventire eearning tours round brac.  
Our global girls movements will be issuning tons of reserach and opportunity learning sightings proving the friendship hypotheses of this mail but right now we invite you to help to form a small group of people who will make this happen from west to east, and east to west. 
 
Basically the Ma-Abed meeting wont hapen in time without us helping make it happen - and the deadline is septmber 18 (still to be chcked but  because on this date the UN's definitive moveneyt on future of education will be launched; jack ma is a commissioner of the report; gordon brown (un envoy) team have asked for our help linking in sir fazle who by accident they left out from promoting top 30 educational revolutionariues
The un launch of education commissioon is free to attend - sunday night of 18 september - detail below. I phoned john kiehl yesterday We have agreed this coming week to work out which of his friends and new york contacts wants as direct connection with ma alumni or abed alumni or both- and how this interfaces with his search for extreme coding (mit, wolfram, marinez ... etc) and system conflict resolution champions (beck including mackey and beck's most active husband and wife team based in san diego - note lowrey also served there and her main economic mentor is the nobel peace laureate for small engterprise economy at Columbia U).

Message body

Great and we would be honored to have Sir Fazle attend the event - he is more than welcomed and our communications team can work with him for an op-ed or web feature as well around launch time 
thanks

Dear Professor Lowrey

 

Yuxuan and Amy's Friends (eg John Kiehl New York, Ian Ryder UK,::  Mostofa Dubai and Bangladesh, Maurice Rome, Vatucan University Youth) and I are trying to work out how to maximise win-wins between pro-youth markets designed by Jack Ma and Sir Fazle Abed

 

the education commission -launch at UN on 18 september appears to be a huge opportunity

 

If you (or your New York economics friends) see how this or other spaces can empower young people's opportunities to help linkin and celebrate such world record job creators. please tell me at any time. 

 

Outside of Bangladesh, I cannot recall a meeting as inspiring as that with you last weekend.

 Thanks

Chinese e-commerce giant - Alibaba Group http://infizia.blogspot.com/2014/12/alibaba.html






Alibaba.com is an e-commerce site that connects Chinese suppliers with buyers at home and abroad. Today, Alibaba Group is involved in a variety of Web businesses. Its most important elements are its online retail sites: Taobao Marketplace, a large commerce site; Tmall, an online marketplace for name-brand retailers like Apple; and Juhuasuan, a daily deals site similar to Groupon. The company is also affiliated to mobile payments service called AliPay, and it has investments in online video, mobile messaging and cloud computing, among other businesses. The company that started in 1999 by Jack Ma, a former teacher from his apartment in his hometown of Hangzhou, now employs 24,000 workers at its headquarters in Hangzhou and elsewhere, with 25 separate business units. 


 

Alibaba Products: 

Alibaba has built a massive e-commerce business without selling even a single pair of jeans, washing machine, or book. What it sells instead are consumers, and it sells them in groups to retailers who pay for clicks, keywords, ad views, and sales. 
Unlike Amazon, Alibaba itself does not sell and ship items to customers. Instead, it acts as a kind of online bazaar where merchants as small as local vendors and as large as Nike can sell their wares. Alibaba makes money mainly by convincing these sellers to place search ads on its website to reach more potential customers through keywords (like Google) or by charging a commission on some transactions (like eBay). The company also makes money by selling premium memberships, cloud computing services and access to analytics data.
 
 

 

How does Alibaba make money? 

Alibaba has already been called so many things–the Amazon of China, the biggest IPO of all time, the harbinger of a new Internet era—that it can be hard to pin down exactly what Alibaba does and how it makes money. 
 
A recent Forrester Research report called Alibaba ―the world’s biggest digital ecosystem.‖ That description provides a pretty good indication of its sprawling operation. About 84% of the company’s revenue comes from its China commerce businesses, such as Taobao and Tmall sites. International commerce accounts for 12% of the top line, while cloud-computing and Internet infrastructure represents 1.9%.  
 
On the consumer side, Alibaba operates Taobao, which works much like eBay, and Tmall, which brands like Apple and Uniqlo use to reach out to an estimated 302 million online shoppers in China. Taobao, which does not charge transaction fees, makes money mainly through advertising purchased by traders who use the site. Many traders spend money on advertising to make their products more visible, because there are more than 800 million pieces on Taobao. While almost anyone can become a seller on Taobao with little cost in advance, Tmall is the most exclusive site. Trademarks and authorized distributors pay the deposit to open storefronts after going through a stringent verification process.  
 
It runs AliExpress, a site to connect consumers outside China with exporters, and a group shopping site, Jujuasuan. Its flagship site, Alibaba.com, handles wholesale business-to-business commerce, a huge market that neither Amazon nor eBay yet dominates online. It has a small business-to-small business marketplace, 1688.com. And it offers cloud computing in the style of Amazon Web Services. Alibaba is also tied to online payments giant Alipay and is used for buying products across Alibaba’s sites.  

 

Success Mantra: 

Chinese are tight-fisted. So Alibaba made all the basic services it offers free to both buyers and sellers. It earns money through online advertisements and extra services it offers clients, such as website design. The second is that many Chinese are reluctant to trust strangers. So Alibaba has provided tools to build trust. One is an independent verification service through which third parties vet the claims made by sellers; the sellers pay for the process. Another is the Alipay payments system, which takes money up front and puts it in an escrow account. Vendors can be sure that payments made through it will be honoured.  

 

Number Games: 

But don’t just believe the rhetoric. Believe the numbers. The Wall Street Journal has reported that the combined transaction volume of Taobao e-commerce marketplace and Tmall reached $240 billion last year. That’s triple the size of eBay Inc., and more than double the size of Amazon.com Inc. 
 
Sales across Alibaba’s consumer marketplaces were $296 billion over the past year. By comparison, eBay in 2013 sold $76.5 billion in merchandise, only about $5 billion more than Alibaba sold on mobile devices alone. Total payment volume on Alipay in 2013 was $519 billion, more than double PayPal’s total of $180 billion in the same year.    
 

 

Data Driven: 

The sheer volume of commerce moving across Alibaba’s many platforms means the company likely has the most comprehensive and most detailed picture of consumer behaviour in the largest consumer market on the planet—a market whose spending power continues to grow. With great depth and breadth of visibility into consumer behaviour, Alibaba will be able to assemble a highly detailed profile of its consumers — which allows it to become much smarter and sell far more.  

 

Global Perspective: 

Alibaba does a huge amount of business—and compared to Amazon, it does business much more efficiently. Unlike Amazon, Alibaba doesn’t own its own inventory. Its marketplaces handle the selling, not the stuff itself. Even Alibaba’s logistics operation exists to coordinate deliveries, not to make them. Through its cooperation with 14 strategic delivery partners, Alibaba uses more than 950,000 delivery personnel. It also has more than 980,000 cloud computing customers. The company also has more than 342,000 small businesses taking out loans from the company.  
 
Alibaba has so far managed to achieve profit margins. In its most recent fiscal year, Alibaba’s net profit margin—net profits divided by revenue—was greater than 44 percent, a figure that has climbed steadily over the past few years. Amazon’s net profit margin in 2013, by comparison, was less than 1 percent. Net margins at Google and Apple last year hovered at just above 20 percent.  

 

Conclusion: 

Jack ma’s vision of making Alibaba reach its pinnacle of success can be estimated when he states that ―There were three reasons why we survived. We had no money, we had no technology, and we had no plan. Every dollar, we used very carefully.‖ The company’s breakneck growth in China shows no signs of abating, and Alibaba also has plans to compete on U.S. shores. In September, 2014, Alibaba launched its IPO. The company raised $21.8 billion when it priced its IPO at $68 per share, making it the largest offering in U.S. history. That opening price puts Alibaba’s overall valuation at almost $230 billion, more than Amazon and eBay’s valuations combined.   
 
Many questions still dog Alibaba, like concerns about corporate governance, China’s uncertain regulatory environment, and competition from other Chinese internet behemoths. But what works in Alibaba’s favour is the  depth and breadth of data that puts it in the same league as the biggest U.S.-based tech platforms.

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"?

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

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;

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.
