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.

1.2 brac microfinance

 related by 1990 gov also formed PKSF as apex of all recognised microfinance in bangladesh -see also typical annual report - 2015 report being written in 2016 year of abed's 80 birrthday celebrations

debates over who invented microfinance seem academic to me- i cant imagine that nowhere before bangladesh of the 1970s did someone start offering transparent savings and loans having first heledp hundred or families communally hundreds of family size businesses the community most need to have food to keep children safe to share last mile mother and infant care -last mile services and training critical to development- indeed i would almost of hoped that somewhere on our planet that was the empowering purpose of local government

by the 1990s bangladesh became known as open university of microfinance

any way that's how banking for por emerged naturally around brac by sir fazle abed and grameen by muhammad yunus -and how irs replication  helped women build a sustainable rural nation from what had been born 1971 poorest in world as well as 8th most populous- its important to note abed built rural health service franchises and training networks 10 years ahead of yunus whose bank only got a national ordinance in 1983-- so studying what was being banked by brac and grameen are two different organisational compasses (styles were different too with abed founding over 100 microfranchises but delegatining/auditing once the replicable model was operational while in some ways everything went through yunus at grameen) even though they became what millennium goal networkers with the big name approval of hilary clinton and spain's queen sofia hosted annual  global summits around swtarting in wash dc 1997 and going round the world

however for reasons that are not clear to me micrcreditsummit went all out getting yunus the nobel peace prize and washington dc's top 2 medals - congress ionaland president; and big banks stated sponsoring more and more academics to teach either yunus stories or how to improve on them -not one offered anything like the network of systems that abed offers b eit with brac microfinance + 1.2 or any of the 30 interacting networks for cmomunities deeply advancing sdgs 1 to 5

we can see that at abed's death , yunus acknowledges that abed laid the foundations
