RAISING >2 BILLION HUMANS INTELLIGENCES BY 25 YEARS. After helping with recovery 1970 cyclone killing half a million of his compatriots, Fazle Abed was nearly assassinated by his employer Royal Dutch Shell and the Pakistani army. Fortunately he spent his remaining 50 years celebrating intelligence development of the poorest 2 billion parents notably growth of 1billiongirls. For over quarter of a century all networking was done by word of mouth and sight of book because in Asia 20th c village life still meant no access to electricity grids or telephone lines. Fortunately both Computing Whizs Jobs & Gates were both partly dis-satisfied with western apps of pc networks which they had begun in 1984. Around 2001 they both hosted silicon valley 65th birthday wish parties for Abed as global village tech envoy. Partners in life critical challenges had begun to bring abed's village mothers solar and mobile to co-create with. Abed changed the way Jobs saw tech futures of education (see ) and how Gates saw global health fund foundations and overall the valley's university stanford started to see as far as intelligence of Women and Youth goes the most life critical knowhow for 2 billion humans wasnt directly measurable in 90 day monetary flows; it was measurable in increased life expectancy by over 25 years during Abed's community servant leadership. Probably the greatest lift in intelligence until celebrations of what Fei-Fei Li opened the worlds eyes to in 2012, and Melinda Gates and Nvidia's Jensen Huang were first to helped AIforall lift since 2014.

during brac's first decade abed also hunted out village mothers and trained them up to be primary schools most joyful educators  if death , loneliness are in communities near you think what that community is likely doing to children- start turning things around-eg with playschools why not start matching local clusters of 30 three to 6 year olds with the most loving female teachers www.abedplay.com ... journal edu emergency

probably refugee education more than any other issue requires questioning totally new way of fitting all the age groups and modes of education together - in 2021 we will try and catalogue some of the stages discussing this- educationaboveall is the oldest un 40 country partnership on refugeee education led by qatar's first lady but then politics hit qatar now the momentum of un seems to have totally shifted to educationcannotwait which sees dubai as its big mid east platform www.rewired2021.com

The Education Above All Foundation’s Educate A Child programme, and its partners invite you to join

Coping with COVID vs CREATIVITY in Crisis
A special side event at the
UN High-Level Political Forum 2021 (HLPF)

Monday 12 July at 07:30 am – 09:00 am (ET)

The global coronavirus pandemic thrust upon the world, a collective nightmare. It revealed the egregious deeply-rooted inequities across our societies. Those who were already marginalised and many living a subsistence life became even more vulnerable. The means of modern connectivity through technology were not (and are not still) readily available to the majority of children. The consequences for the hardest-to-reach continue to be severe. Further isolation from learning opportunities was undoubtedly the outcome for millions of children who were already out of school prior to pandemic related school closures.

The forced closure of schools and learning centres only served to deepen the chasm between those children who could access education and those without the resources to do so on their own.  Despite the disturbing reality of the situation, this experience presented opportunities to reflect on and to rethink nearly everything previously perceived as normal and taken for granted. However, in many cases, the pandemic prompted resilience and creativity in the face of enormous challenges, and as the world began to shut down, alternate means of education provision emerged.

This virtual event will be a moderated panel discussion, which will permit panellists from EAC-implementing partners the opportunity to offer their remarks, insights and answer context-specific questions about the efficacy of distance education and the respective roles of the community, parents and teachers. After every panellist has had the floor, the moderator will open a Q&A session that will be followed by closing remarks.

  • Mr Fahad Al-Sulaiti, CEO, Education Above All Foundation 


  • Ms Sabrina Hervey, Technical Head of West Africa and Asia, Educate A Child
