Extract : BRAC - the world's largest ngo partnership has many moving parts- both at its headquarters in Dhaka, and wherever its biggest partners are located and apply sdgs to empower communities poorest women build across generations - eg dfid/ukaid in london, gates in seattle, tech wizards at MIT and dubai and hangzhou ...
the head office of the field force which in many cases is also where decisions are made on leading a national market place -eg leadership enterprises of poultry, diary, rice science
when it come to finance brac has a leadership position for poorest in every segment - eg ultra graduation from gift of working capital to microloan, microfinance ++ , brac banks in cities where second generation village girls now often work, to remittances up to a third of the nations inward monetary flows come from bangladeshis working abroad, to the number 1 digital banking model for the poorest www.bkash.com
brac also has a barefoot lawyers network; when eg cities expand how do villagers gain not lose from urban encroachment -also how to help villagers make sure that waste is not dumped on them
over years sir fazle abed has needed to redesign market leadership at least 4 levels
1 village - brac does not willingly offer loans to village wwomn unless b rac can ensure there is a market for their [roduces
200000 villages - we define a micrfranchises as the opposite to mcdonalds- it is diligent service operation replicable across communities but that value produecd stays largely or wghily with the local producers - in this case usually family size enterprises run by village mothers
national - as for example in the case of the enterprises
global as for example in the way that brac has transformed both aid and village investment, and the partnerships needed to sustain development through generations, and indeed why anyone scoping curriculum for each sdg should make sure they havent forgotten any deepest solutions brac has experientially developed with girls facing extreme chalenges
brac also started a university in 1999- this had to fund itself so started as comparable in some ways with other national universities but where students knew they would be expected to spend one term developing a village project- today we the university needs relationship with asia's top 10 almost as much as the west top 10 university of development economics needs relationships with it- with 47 years of 84 year old's sir fazle's learning curve to tgp into - there are end poverty partnersrhip models to integrate through every level of technology- much of india also has a lot top learn from brac -if cultural translations would be found, the microfranchi9ses the poorest need to replicate are very similar (borderless even) if you live in a humid village , still in many cases with no access to infrastructure grids. needing to maximise community resiliency
brac has always been a world ;leader in what last mile health services village comuniities can learn to be self-sufficient in - in fact ath the founding core of BTAC. this raised mothers and infants life expectations sufficiently for family sizes t0p come down and women to plan a working life in addition to children- the university has a james grant public school of health which is vosited by experts around teh world
tech including mobile village phones and microsolar started coming to villages from 1996- sir fazle abed wasnt in a hurry- and retrospectively it can bee seen that he was operated to wait for some of the world's best tech partners to come together and want to help with technology leapfroging - however this can make visiting brac quite complex if undestand how and where it a tech world leader- it also makes it difficult for understanding how brac becamse the world's largest livelihood educator- i havent seen anywhere write that up in a way that begins to celebrate brac living up to paulo freire view that the poorest and youngest are teachhers as well as learners
here's an analogy i suggest for those who dont really know how much of brac they have seen
the testing of various tech models - here just as when I used to work at a global accounting firm - the etch office is as much virtual or global in terms of where the next leadership of the tech is integrated and while i think i know who many of the tech wizards are .. there is no point trying to write up case study of what works as its detailed micro-dynamics will be out of date in its partnership permutations and next tech features- making this more complex is digital and real infrastructure investments across continental asia drive each other- and while bottom up networkers need to respect the rules of the world of nations, evolution cant wait for ten year plans when your community is the ultra test case of a life critical sdg
LONGER VERSION firstname.lastname@example.org
How did brac directly help with sustaining a billion womens poorest livelihoods and as the the largest ngo partnership impact far more than that?
12 years of studying how to value brac's brand leadership i still dont know in the way i have chartered the reality of various global brands. One reason being how much has changed every decade around bangladesh, south asia, the whole of aaia and the world. If building brac was a game of chess sir fazle abed has sequenced the emotionally smartest 50 hi-trust moves of just about any leader over 47 years - certainly one concerned with all actionable SDGs that now 3 generations of poorest village mothers and children can interconnect if digital inclusion is celebrated
Let's consider the analogy of the big global accounting firm two of whose brands worked on through the 1990s and through to the disappearance of Andersen. Their leaders did pretty much anything to choose the biggest or best clients in each sector.
MULTIPLY by SMALL'S BEAUTIFUL, LARGE SCALE ESSENTIAL
Sir Fazle abed has chosen to linkin pretty much the most scaleable solutions discoverable if you started by changing your job from national ceo of shell to making your headquarters in a bangladesh village region (no electricity 1972) with millions dying around you through cyclone, war or starvation, Action Learning The values of resiliency starting as the worlds first bottom-up disaster relief network evolving into girls deepest development networking through hundreds of thousands of village bhubs, he could earn the most important trusts, and unlike other disater relief agencies who fly in and then elave before development - he stayed searching out most desperate needs and solutions that could livelihood education and changing market's value chains could multiply
SDGs 1-5 are the deepest most urgent if you are villager starting with nothing SDG 1 poverty 2 hunger 3 health 4 education 5 ending women as underclass. But brac also needed to earn everyone's trust as financier and be the one stop hub for every village resiliency lesson-livelihood. Two huge solutions of the early 1970s - borlaug's crop science particularly rice could become a livelihodd earner for huge numbers of village mothers and saving infants through oral rehydration gained respect for what only smart womens networking can do.
Lets fast forward - what are the overlapping partenrships as brac and bangladesh and the world faces the 2020s - a strange time w3hen urgent application of tech has never benn more important but in the english speaking world the most powerfu; ublic servants and media seem to have lost confidence in empowering youth or indded any of us who try to develop families and communities across generations.
Internationally brac is the ebnchmark for finacial and livelihood education development - it has models that attract leaders in etch for sdgs like Bil and Melinda Gaytes and Jack Ma.
Natuionally it has a leading positin in over 10 makets so the wholle value chains maxisise marklet participation by the poorest .
Locally particularly in banagldesh and the myanar bodre it ahs up to 100000 servants in the filed many who have only evfer worked for or with brac.
Depending what you want to learn- that mkeans there are veery different subetorks of bra you might want to co-partner in innovation if you have a win-win to buuld with. In tryimg to observe which of brac's most trusted partners start where I would suggest that serious people working on the edge of the deepest sdg crises choose from these gaeways
the head office of the filed force which in many cases is also decison are made on leading a national market place -eg leadeship of poultry, diary, rice science
the university needs relationship iwth asia's top 10 almost as much as the west top 10 university of development economics needs relationships with it
the etsting of various tech models - here just as when I used to work at a global accounting firm - the etch office is as much vi9rtal or global in terms of where the next leadership of the tech is integrated and while i thinko i know whpo many of the tech wizards are - they prefer to get on with things ou publpicise their own next clls for innovation hubbing will take place- as in so much tech timing is crucial- thyere i9s no point trying to write up case sudy of what worls as it will be out of date in its partenrship permuttions and next tech features- making this more complex is digiotal and real infarstructure investments across contuental asia drive each other- and while bootom uo networkers need to erspect the ruels of the wprld of nations, evolution cant wait for ten yera plans when your community is the ultra test case of a life criti9cal sdg
worldwide - brac has tow sorts of presemces- implementation offices serving one country which it often sets up with one elad fundaing or tech partner- so i thonk of bgrac tanzania as the lab with bill gates foundation or other african
|Among many legacy problems inherited from British Empire across Asia; world war 2 had bankrupt Britain- so many colonies got independence with no transition. Arguably 50 hardest jobs ever pooped up: leading a new nation that had been a colony the day before; weirdly Bangladesh's short straw being assigned to pakistan to lead for 25 yeras 1947-1971 caused the innovation of aid 2.0 from 1971 - the nation's new gov barely had the revenues to organise 10% living in cities and national security : 90% rural peoples were left to networking Bangladesh Rural Advancement Cooperations-fortunatly they united around probably the most qualified and caring chartered accountant 20th C south asia would ever see; he would say it wasnt him but the wmen and those who chose to unite round gifts such as ortal rehydration - he knew where to search for community replicable solutions having been the regional ceo for royal dutch shell until half a million peopke around him were killed by a cyclone and as the work of immediate releif work turned to what next, shell sided with west pakistan army against independence movement- abed flew back to london to sell his putney flat (about 40000$), resign frok shell, and be ready to help with bottom up womens nations building - here are 5 intertgenerational solutions taking half a century to integrate - womens nation building of G1 funance G2 food security G3 health G4 ed G5 massive cooperation women emotional intel and resilience and a segway from centuries of no electricity to 21st C leapfrogging with mobile solar and SDG mapmaking cooperations uniting peoples futures|
