I have worked on poverty alleviation over the last 40 years in Bangladesh and when catherine used to be the head World Food Program we worked on a program called vulnerable group development program working with the poorest 10% of bangladesh's population providing support through food rations for two years but then we found that most of these people who received the food rations didn't really improve themselves to a level where they could come out of poverty
02:57 So in Bangladesh we started a differently designed program in 2001 called targeting the ultra poor 1.3 -again the poorest ten per cent) but this time we provided support in terms of an asset transfer -perhaps 3 goats --we also provided them training/ hand-holding and we gave them a stipend for their children to go to school
-mainly women headed households in Bangladesh; so we aimed to graduate them out of extreme poverty to a level of poverty where they can access market-based solutions eg by becoming a microfinance borrower and over the years we have now graduated about 1.5 million families in Bangladesh
Back in 2005 a delegation from CGAP consultative , part of the world bank's ultra poor team came to Bangladesh- they looked at our program and said why don't we replicate this program in other countries so Ford Foundation and CGAP funded a program in 10 countries three in Asia including India Pakistan and then Ethiopia Ghana Liberia then haiti honduras and peru
so these countries were pilot projects modeled on the bangladesh/brac program and there were three research institutions the MIT poverty action lab, the Dean Karlan at Yale School of Management and also London School of Economics they were hired to monitor the progress on these ten projects
the london school of economics which has been looking at the brac program over the last 12 years
and the other programs were looked on for about six years by these institutions and last year there
was a report by these research organizations and what was published in science magazine
https://science.sciencemag.org/content/348/6236/1260799 which came out with a very positive indicators
this involved randomized control trials so what we are hoping is that if this is the way to graduate very poorest of the poor people
various governments and donor agencies will take this up
the first country that is now interested in scaling up a large is the Kenyan government with the help of funding and implememtation by CARE and one other agency which brac will offer tech support to- this will be the first major project outside Bangladesh
and I' talked yesterday to the president of World Bank, jim kim, trying to get him to visit brac program
in Bangladesh when he goes there in a couple of weeks from now and hopefully also to
try and support if he's convinced , application in other countries 08:28 so we have found one way of tackling extreme poverty and hunger in Bangladesh; the point about this particular program is that is the poor themselves who do all the hard work to get themselves out of poverty so
All we have donei is create the enabling condition for them

to be honest, i failed - the last 10 minutes i spent in the presence of sir fazle abed he was talking about luminary networks but i didnt get it- at the time i thought i had booked at least 2 more chances to listen: a summit in hong kong that got cancelled due to the 2019 riots and a field visit by a barefoot chinese medic who had turned herself into beijing's number 1 srudent coach on sustainablity of village enterprises having spent 25 years working in usa on small enterprises
lets begin with this question - how does a human being get on a pathway from birth to early adolescence which both maximises her unique skills productively and positive communal emotions such as confidence, happiness, safey, courage , love
answer - ok lets define EDUCATION as the how ....but then i couldnt find that education pathway for my daughter; i have a long diary of all my failures living near washington dc ; so when i was first introduced to abed and found he had built an organisation of 100000 people helping poorest asian girls gain i greedily arranged as many tours to listen to abed as i could
if hopeful education luminary 5-minute casts were as frequent as weather forecasts on whatever media you apply; and that a luminary and alumni panel of abed cheered the world up with this programming - clues to where a being could linkin and get EDUCATION
so whats left to do is pilot luminary club- and thank heavens a hong kong billionnaire (not me) is a lead pilot -thank you charles!!
3.4 1.1 1.2 transforming aid and last mile health - part 2 direct cash transfer- ie being best partner a global foundation could ever find for deep sdg collab
fazle abed was due to talk at world bank's second tedx -sadly neither the second tedx occurred nor abed's remaining years to dec 2019 made that possible
who spoke at first tedx in tune with abed?

1.1 1.2 girlsworldbank.com - fazle abed's founding partners - see harvard professor chen's quiet revolution - started up a miracle during the 1970s - the world's poorest nation became a bottom up partnership lab instead of a top-trickle down dependent- this is how village women went from next to zero productivity to at least half of nation building - ironically because of the way that britain's independence partitioned hatred borders- solutions women might have empowered over 50 years across anywhere that electricity grids hadnt come to asian villages did not reach india pakistan ot mynamar but girl did it reach half a billion chinese women- the financing method as discussed in the economist 1977 - see the village loyalty program WORK POINTS - was NOT the same- british and dutch aid were happy to give billions of dollars in 20th cetury restituition as long as it was the most effective banking and livelihood education bangladesh women could build...
but nobody with any link to human curiosity should be surprised that nature dealt continental asians the same life critical priority challenges in tropical regions cut off from 210 years of what smith and watt started up in glasgow

which of these dimensions interest you most?
4.1 adult-lifelong edu- this is where billion womens empowerment began in 1972- why women and infants were literally starving to death in villages- so almost everyone fazle abed hired for a skill a village woman could make a business put of - eg growing rice, tending for 6 families infants while other village mothers worked on agriculture, learning oral rehydration; ; some adults started asking could they train to be teachers of kids 6-10
4.2 classrooms with one village and 25 kids aged 6-11 took off in mid 1980s - 30000 skills were franchised- hapines, confidence, peer to peer montessori style was the culture
4.3 resources for designing edu for teens were much more constrined- what took off was peer to peer apprentice spaces for particular skills as well as scholarships for those who made the most of primary; the whole area of non-classroom secondary matters everywhere that there is a livelihood mismatch- for 15 yeqrs now we have estimated the world is short of nearly 100 million last mile health workers- covid may have shown thats an under-estimate; secondary girls apprentice clubs have proved particularly successful in clarifying what skiils teens most want; finding enough trainers has been relatively simple for brac in bangladesh since most brac co-workers recruited as trainers in villages-
5.3 brac internet from 1996 was the first time brac could search for 2.0 partners - previously there was no point hiring trainers / attracting investors unless solutions worked in villages without electricity-now brac had both second Generation To support eg village daughters moving to cities as well as possibility of experimenting with solar and mobile in villages- the need was for brac university - now brac could offer deep learning: village research and connect university research around the world with 4.4 new uni (squared now alumni of abed could blend the 6 age groups of traditional real education with anything digitall connections with mother earth's urgent climate etc demands can offer
4.5 what new to the world masters of arts do you think abed chose first? early childhood education - can you think of reasons he valued this global innovation in addition to it being the one age group brac hadn't educationally served?
4.6 abed asked for his legacy to be a luminaries network- each luminary to bring a different piece of the jigsaw education is everything in developing peoples and nations

from 1996 abed started building virtual leapfrog partnerships for millions of women villagers thanks to internet silicon valley -bracnet case 5.3 since 1996 George Hara Founder at DEFTA Partners who also linkedin japans number 2 cell company
imagine replacing e=m-csquared by sustainability=m-billionwomensquared
whats extraordinary is the second half of abed's empowerment of billion women could now square solutions from 1.1 grassroots villagers previously disconnected from the world with potentially deep learning solutions from any gps on earth
imagine connecting 4.4 uni-world, 1.1-1.2 billion womens world and 5.3 internet
2001: within 5 years abed started a university- from the triangularisation of
- 5.3 worldwide digital exchanges,,
he could help billion women build the largest ngo partnerships and why not the greatest collaboration of universities of sustainability generation
- 4.4 graduate students taking over collaboration around his life's work-
abed spent his last decade inviting every sustainbility university to unite their students of being the first sustainability generation

1970-71 Abed's life—and the lives of millions of Bangladeshis—changed as the result of two very dramatic events: a deadly tropical cyclone, which swept across the country, washing away farms, villages, and towns in its path; followed by the nine-month war of independence from Pakistan. The combined death toll from the storm and the war was estimated at well over 3 million people. An additional 10 million were displaced and further impoverished
.Sir Fazle resigned from Shell Oil in 1971, and the next year formed the Bangladesh Rehabilitation Assistance Committee (BRAC’s original name) to address the terrible devastation suffered by the people of his country.
Following initial relief efforts 5.1 building metavillage for 100000 refugees, the organization soon became involved in more long-term community development, with primary objectives of alleviation of poverty and empowerment of the poor—and was renamed the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee.
With his strong focus on growing its operations across a broad spectrum of agricultural, economic, and social enterprises, Sir Fazle set BRAC on a course that was different from other non-governmental organizations. He had concluded that economic development was one of the keys to helping the rural poor—and thus launched a microfinance program to provide very small loans to women borrowers as part of village support groups that participated in skills and organizational training.
BRAC’s multi-dimensional and dynamic methods of fighting hunger and poverty include the creation and support of a range of integrated enterprises, such as: seed production and dissemination; feed mills, poultry and fish hatcheries; milk collection centers and milk processing factories; tea plantations; and packaging factories. The income generated from these social enterprises is used to subsidize primary schools and essential health care. Under Sir Fazle’s leadership of more than 40 years, BRAC’s agricultural and development innovations have improved food security for millions and contributed to a significant decline in poverty levels through direct impacts to farmers and small communities across the globe.
brookings in washington dc seldom discusses this - here's an exception that proves the rule!
programs so we can finally eradicate extreme poverty from the face of the earth. Admittedly, in the words of BRAC’s founder, Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, “asking policymakers to invest in optimism and self-worth may sound like a vague, soft-hearted appeal.”38 It is anything but that, thanks to the emerging science of hope. When combined with the right amount of material support, an injection of hope and self-esteem can break the poverty trap for millions. 38.
