America still has 1000 days of living dangerously under trump just when
so many nations leaders were helping youth and tech move collaboratively around sustainability's urgent chalenges
Conversations many of us have had recently compel me to try once more
If you look at attached this was where sir fazle abed -bangladesh girl empowerment networks of brac had got to in 1979 - imagine what those with acess to the world's laregst ngo can do in education linking into 40 years of more lessons brac network shares
specifically when abby has spent 4 years studying village health in boston , and before that being spotted in indian vilages by mit and wikipedia as connecting health q&a , and now he is at india's un delegation - is there anything his circles could learn by meeting brac leadership now?
or javeed who wants to spend rest of his life on improving education in india as well as brooklyn?
or ed and bob who first linked in with yunus in 1996 but have since understood in their fields mobile and microenergy infratructure networks brac not grameen was bangladesh girl empowerments main connector?
or wherever we discuss black comunity colleges and note that whatever they are being taught students in these colleges are being blocked from networking solutions back into their communities
or wherever china's belt roads connect with a poor country where some girls/women remain as disconncted as brac's once were
so these are my questions (time is urgent as sir fazle is 82 and for 6 years now he has been asking at least 40 of us who met at the japanese embassy in dhaka is there anyone else who can most value his knowhow and connections)
1 is there something you might be most missing by not knowing sir fazle abed and his education director now
2 given in 1997 microcreditsummit was formed to spread the new development model of bangladesh girl empowerment but never shared the real knowhow of brac because it ended up fundarising for yunus and being ipo'd by big banks, how do we make sure that now wise was formed back in 2011 to make brac the benchamrk model of all valuing education we dont make the sam mistake with 3 wise summits now being prepped but as yet none bringing direct connections with brac
1 ghana summit May led by co-chair of un eminent committee
2 un summit at general assembly new york sept 2018 personally invited by guterres
3 paris summit march 2019
whichever city you are in or which you see as your alumni city, if you have questions about the above lets meet there once with whomever else you also know who may have questions
arranging to see sir fazle abed or his nominated directors isnt difficult if we know what overall systems and actions networking question you really want to ask
for those spefically concerned with sino-india there is more here

mostofa can list all the bigest partners of brac and what they did or didnt actaullay multiply around brac as opposed to a project of their own from clinton global to gates foundation to mastercard foundation to british aid to soros or iwse or the education commission to dozens of universities including columbia and berkeley - there has been one major sucessful partnership this is with parts of mit boston and legatum dubai -they have helped brac build the world's largest cashelss bank round the universal mobile connectivity in bangaldesh vilages which I estemiate to be mp3 or less; i believe this to be the level that ali babas brwiser is leading connector of but we desperately need technolgists to assess this so india china and bangaldesh/myanmar poorest can connect each other- and probably with paralels in africa and poorest elsewhere
