Education - BRACs founder was awarded the initila world laureate of education Sir Fazle Abed by the WISE summit. Notes on how BRAC became the world's number 1 network for replicating the Gandhi-Montessori vilalge schooling system
and Markets that free the smallest producers to contribute provided they work hard and deliver consistently
They are also likely to undervalue BRAC's contributions to Msquared - Mobilising Microfranchises. A microfranchise is a service solution that can be massively replicated so that the value of the production and the service stays mainly or wholly in the community in which it is delivered. Alternatively when its value is exported out of the community that is because the community already has enough to sustain its needs. BRAC has designed hundreds of microfranchise delivering income generation to villlage women who were previously the world's poorest mothers. BRAC maintains trust with partners more brilliantly than any organisation we have ever found , and this now applies particularly to mobile tech wizards that it partners.
Its somewhat ironic that the greatest innovation in vilage schooling the world has ever seen was started by Gandhi/Mintessori in India but is now continued by Bangladesh out of BRAC. India does however celebrateCity Montessori
