abedMOOC.com started from a brainstorming dinner convened by Japan Ambassador to Dhaka who noticed my father's surveys of Asia Rising begun with Japan 1962 (endorsed by JF Kennedy) had not completely detailed Bangladesh Rural Advancement's  contributions to sustaining humanity and celebrating nation building through women empowerment . Dad's last public birthday party had celebrated launch of Muhammad Yunus Global Social Business Book February 2008 with 40 guests at Royal Automobile Club, St James, London. Father had also paid for sampling 2000 of Yunus books, 10000 dvds (youtube style interviews with all grameen directors during summer 2008 when the Nobel judges opened Yunus Museum in Mirpur, as well as part of launch of 2 Journals by Adam Smith Scholars in Glasgow that had emerged from Yunus making the 250th keynote speech on Adam Smith Moral Sentiments Dec 2008.

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 


Accelerating Progress in Ending Hunger and Undernutrition

Blog recap: A Window of Opportunity to End Hunger and Undernutrition

Hunger and undernutrition persist as major global challenges, yet some countries have proven successful at rapidly reducing both. For example, Compact2025 focal countries—Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Rwanda—have each reduced the prevalence of hunger by roughly half from 1990 to 2015. In Peru, hunger rates fell by even more than half, from 32 percent to just 7.5 percent in the same period. Some countries have also made great strides to reduce undernutrition. Bangladesh reduced child stunting rates by 1.3 percent annually from 1997 to 2007—and then made accelerated reductions from 2011 to 2014 when stunting rates fell from 41 to 36 percent. Successes like these show that rapid progress is possible. How to sustain progress in these countries and accelerate progress in others are key questions that will be addressed in this special event convened by Compact2025.

Compact2025, a bold new initiative facilitated by IFPRI, aims to accelerate progress and scale up investments in ending hunger and malnutrition by 2025. Since its launch, the initiative has hosted country roundtables, released the book Nourishing Millions: Stories of Change in Nutrition, and is developing a Knowledge and Innovation hub, and much more.
