20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

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.

Welcome Remarks:

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


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

Panel members:

  • Dr Seid Aman, Country Director, imagine1day
