5h1 notes on building 100000 person field lab 2004-1972

 book on fazle abed 

Golam Mortoza: Author of the book 'Fazle Hasan Abed O BRAC'.   in 2004 abed recalls what he started and hoped in 1972 ...He smiled again, and started talking, "I imagined a happier and more prosperous Bangladesh; not the one we have now.' I used to visit Shalla in 1972 by travelling through difficult roads. I didn't feel any pain back then, and I still do not find it painful to remember those days." The success in Shalla smoothened the way for the future endeavours of BRAC. From the very first day, the way he conducted all the work is such a tale that, no matter how many times I hear it, it never fails to surprise me. He went to Shalla and handpicked educated young people who did not have work. He deployed them to collect data on damages. With the help of some teachers from the statistics and economics departments of Dhaka University, he analysed the collected data and determined the actual magnitude of the damages, and also the way forward. He brought enough tin from Japan to build 14 thousand houses.  He brought 6 lakh bamboos a huge amount of wood from Assam by floating the materials through Kushiara river. He built homes for people without any kind of irregularity or corruption. He also provided healthcare. BRAC managed to change the face of the war-torn Shalla within a few months,n Fazle Hasan Abed's own words, 'I went to London in 1972. There, I found out that the Oxfam officials are very happy with our work. BRAC was one of the best performing projects among the 700 projects that they were running across the globe. For that reason, getting money for our work became much easier.  

On April 24, Dr Muhammad Yunus, the only Nobel laureate in Bangladesh, spoke about the work of Fazle Hassan Abed. He said, 'All the people of Bangladesh have been touched by the work of Fazle Hasan Abed, one way or other. The span of Abed's activities was so vast that no one could be left out of its reach. Education, health, poverty alleviation, handicrafts—everywhere Abed has left his mark. Fazle Hasan has totally changed our traditional concepts of an NGO. He did things that no one could do before. No disaster could hold him back, he stayed in the frontline and became successful.

2,5 brac dairy

 milk is a difficult product to market in a developing and humid nation - it doesnt keep long

fazle abed wanted to improve value even for small producers by marketing powdered milk , but timing was everythng- he had to wait untile the eu stopped dumping

there are q    uite a lot of stories about brac dairy that need careful mapping - one is a new accountant who seeing the numbers of the dozen or so manufacturing plats said its obvious this one needs closing - its bring down profitabilty- to which abed said not obviious thats the poorest part of the coubtry and more  emplymemt would be lost by closing that dowb than anywhere else

social business models are not afraid to cross-sponsor for the benefit of maximising total livelihoods sustained

================= write up at brac factsheet

BRAC Dairy was launched in 1998 to help marginal and homestead dairy farmers gain better access to the market and receive fair prices. A large number of our microfinance clients were investing in cattle, and in doing so were being exposed to risks owing to poor breeding, limited veterinary services, shortages in cow feed and the inaccessibility of the market. Some of these challenges were addressed through social enterprises such as BRAC Artificial Insemination and BRAC Feed Mills, but the perishable nature of dairy products meant that it remained difficult for rural dairy farmers to reach large urban markets. BRAC Dairy works to offer market access to rural dairy farmers by buying milk from them at a fair price, and ensures a constant and steady demand and good return for the milk being produced by these rural entrepreneurs

BRAC Dairy today Today, BRAC Dairy not only secures fair prices for its rural dairy farmers, but has also expanded to offer cattle development and technical training, vaccination, feed cultivation facilities and other services. BRAC Dairy was the first dairy company in Bangladesh to have received ISO 22000 Certification, setting an example of vigilance at every stage of dairy production, processing, and distribution contributing to dairy products’ safety record.Through its 101 chilling centres, BRAC Dairy collects milk from more than 50,000 registered farmers and sells them nationwide under the Aarong Dairy brand.

Quick stats BRAC Dairy has a collection and processing capacity of around 250,000 litres of milk per day. Today, the enterprise accounts for 24 per cent of the national packaged dairy products market. Currently, this enterprise serves approximately 50,000 dairy farmers in the western region of Bangladesh with over 1,400 employees working under its umbrell
