revolution in aid: mainly with microfranchisee business not grants but where aid partners were found a world class solution was designed so everywhere (and every type of government and media) came to learn for 1 billionwomens development lab. This mattered because there are endeavors like education and changing infrastructure (energy, tech, trade) that needed intergenerationl funding by taxes- cannot be done be private finance bowling alone. Over a generation the world poorest community rising women became inspiration researchers of top-down governments, youth's celebrated storytellers and inspired tech wizards to join in the deepest learning human and tech intel can blend
IT HELPED THAT MACROECONOMISTS HAD GIVEN UP (BANGLADESH 8th MOST POPLULOUS NATUION IS BASKET CASE) and the SERVANT Leader (microfrnachise designer) of this 90% rural nation had bene Asia's leading young oil company engineer (CEO Royal Dutch Shell East Pakistan). In 3 life changing years a cyclone killed a illion people around him; the war of independence killed another million leaving massive village destruction; a famine like no other had begun the nation;s birth. Rice needed to be the first microfranchise; the second microfranchise needed to start building last mile health services to raise life expectancy from 25 below world average.
Back from the 1970s Scaling supply chain for 100000 people microfranchise also meant that women designed the wholesale (value chains) & R&D of national markets that needed to be integrated round development of the poorest. Where this began the poorest village women had to network for 25 yeras without access to electricity.

offer teens of bangladesh as great a challenge in 2010s as kennedy's space age had offered american teens
abedmooc.com share 25 collaboration solution 1 billion girls had already found
demonstrate at least 4 solutions that the university could innovate so that female graduates generated 50 million good jobs per research area geared to the most urgent leaps forward needed
If the first (least resourced ) ne millennium university could achieve 4 such collaboration projects - would other better resourced universities join in with at elast 1 50 million good jobs innovation that their girls graduates share with girls alumni of the 2020s in time for the sdgs to be reality not greenwashing> Fazle Abed spent much of his 19 new millennium years debating this with every asian and other ambassador who wanted to explore this education revolution. Abed did not get to see web3 or guterres year of researching old edu not fit for purpose but what will all his 50 years of partners in women building bangladesh do now .

we know from humanity's second last chance the birth of the united nations in 1945 that 7-11 USA UK CANADA FRANCE GERMANY ITALY .... white empires did exactly the opposite of sharing machines everywhere--in fact the vats majority of 65% of beings in Asia had next to zero access to machine age with Japan the one big exception; Africans not only had no machines for their own continent but were slavery's main compass - the root cause of world war 2 was world trade had been carved up by the white emepires (as well as japan which caught the empire disease when the american navy indicated it would otherwise colonise japan in the late 1800s)- worse for those who saw the war in personality tyerms there was no immediate- one o0f the 2 most evil (or mad depending on which view of despots you parse) men ever to tuled (Hitler or Stalin) would win -nore of history's curveballs....
