Fazle Abed

Nobody in the 20th century has contributed more to "the curriculum" of ending poverty of the poorest than Sir Fazle Abed. What is amazing is the failure lof western universities to come close to teaching this curriculum

Professors go wrong by totally misdescribing what brac does
Go back to 1972 and you will seeSir Fazle Abed went to live in one of the poorest regions lon earyh with no access to electricity and which was suffering at least 3 crises
cyclone that had lkilled more people locally than any preiously seen
a war of independence that had caused much distruction as well as dis;location of people
a famine that killed a million people

what sir fazle did was search and test solutions the community needed
by 1978 he had about 30 - which could be calssified into 2 types

type 1 could be microfrancied- ie a market could be designed for vilagers who learnt the solution so that the vilagers business would be positive income generating
type 2 had huge value eg teaching every mother how oral hydration could save her infsants life but needed some organisation to fund this

it shouldnt be a suprise that the first type 1 microfranchses were agricultural- fortunatle the green revolutoion linked by crop scientists lile bor;laug was happening- brac coukd work out a way fro vailage mothers to ;produce several times more rice than before
- ruice is a great staple but kit has no votamins - co children needed veggies to be grown as well as rise- fazle abed discovered that less than 10% of the seeds beingh distribiuted to vilagers were working - so brac wlorked out how to correct that and make vegetable farming incvome generating for village housewives

the error academics make is committed every time they describe bracs main purpose as microlending - it wasnt- it was simple that savings and loans were what the vollage mothers needed to implement any of the type 1 solutions

overall brac reinvented the whole developing economics model as well as how international aid is done

we have colected papers by sir fgazle or the main entrepreneur describing how solutions were innovated over 46 years including 25 pre-digital   9* Sir Fazle Abed
