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.

Canada's veteran economic development expert ian smillie observes- no organisation has leapt forwaed empowering humanity as often as brac during sir fazle abed's 50 years - do you have a vfavorite leapfrog tear - how about 2009? There were probably 5 occasions when brac double in staff size literally by adding a whole new wing of support- in its first 7 years it designed microfrachsie busineses so that wmen could lead 3 by 100000 people communities oit of starvation; around 1980 it started nationwide traimning of mothers both on oral rehydration which they themselves were to deliver to inafants and with that trust earned achieving a nationwide innocultaion program in recod speed and low cost; by the time vilage mothers were moving beyong the poverty line, they asked brac to build 40000 primary schools -a nd all this during 25 years when vilages meant no access to electricuty - networking was by word of mouth or nonce literacy wss built by printed word

FROM 1995 partners brought brac mobile and solar - so which was the greatest leap forwadd year of all - we'd kike to hear from you chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk - how about the extrordinary 2009- even while the western world was drowning in subprime, alumni of abed were changing every possibility of girls lives

Going through my notes 2009 was a pivotal year in bangladesh. Brac Annual report 2009 is fascinating http://www.brac.net/sites/default/files/Annual-Report-2009/brac-ar-2009-programme-update.pdf. on page 28 scaling of brac's WASH WAterSanitation HYgiene was taking off - sanitation facilities built in 1000 schools , cost 1000 dollar / school 40% paid for by school. At that time Brac was main contributor to Unicef's 2nd Global Handwashing Day october 15 london school of hygiene & tropical medicine has been a consistent supporter https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/newsevents/news/2021/lshtm-expertise-helps-global-handwashing-campaign-reach-billion-people 2009 was the first year that i invited 2 directors of brac to dr yunus 69th birthday party. I now realise this was the year when brac designed purple as its global branding - no small matter now that is the most recognisable id in bangladesh thanks to bkash icon serving the mosy populous cashless bank in the world https://www.google.com/search?q=nbkash+icon During 2009 Abed became the favorite of the 3 royals who knew most about Empires poverty traps across Asia : namely, Japan UK Netherlands. Prince Charles selected Abed for a knighthood. The Netherlands agreed to be Brac Global's HQ. www.abedmooc.com
