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.

year of 21 not out yet - track reports here

from 2020 yidan report:
Sir Fazle sadly passed away in December 2019, but the work he began continues at pace. We spoke to his friend and colleague Dr Erum Mariam, Executive Director at the BRAC Institute of Educational Development, who described the team’s swift response to pandemic lockdowns. The work of our laureates l Our annual report for 2020 BRAC’s work has always reinforced the importance of women as change-makers in homes and communities. When the pandemic took away opportunities for children to gather in play centers, the team switched to the most powerful technology at their disposal: cell phones.

The power of picking up the phone kept play-based learning on the agenda for BRAC The BRAC team knew they needed to keep connected with parents, particularly mothers, throughout the pandemic. But how? Well, most people in Bangladesh own a cell phone— perhaps up to 90% (while only around 50% have internet). So in a matter of weeks, they set up weekly 20-minute phone calls, checking in on families, giving support to both parents and children, and suggesting games and activities to keep play-based learning alive. They call this telecommunications model Pashe Achhi, which means “beside you” in Bangla. Online learning platforms might be exploding in popularity, but for BRAC, you can’t beat the “power of human connection” you get with a one-to-one call. It also helps the team reach communities that might otherwise be completely disconnected. Before the pandemic, BRAC was already working with around 40,000 children in Rohingya refugee camps; cell phones have let the team stay in touch with 90% of them.Working with our Foundation gave BRAC the confidence to change plans and grow “Not for a moment did we hesitate,” says Erum. “We knew that Yidan would support us, and that gives us a lot of energy, and a lot of courage to do what we need to do.” Not only has BRAC been able to adjust its plans for expanding play-based learning in three countries, but they’re even exploring new ideas. With the help of another partnership, they’re finding ways to evaluate how they use mobile technology, echoing another of Sir Fazle’s founding principles: every intervention must be tried, tested, and improved at every stage
