: imagine what job creating education can do if parents truly value millennials

 Is DR Muhammad Yunus the most misunderstood man in the world? see report below -goal of Banking on poorest village mothers livelihoods?

#2025Now - last decade to answer Gandhi's century old global village question - will a generation of parents ever be courageous enough to invest in their next generation worldwide as the most connected and practically educated the human race has ever served?  (help map alumni of Gandhi - eg montessori 1920s, Einstein and Keynes 1930s, ... Soros and Mandela 1980s ...

Can 4 types of liveliehoods-led educational change converge so that education fully supports the lives and livelihoods millennials could be enjoying?

the change in practices of teachers and communities and government

the virtual tools and value of universal access -see MOOCYunus for vision - try eg or khan academy to see gamechanging platforms

the missing curricula of 21st C livelihhods- see such partnerships in vocational skills and blecher/Branson/Google out of S. Africa

lets empower millennials to value their own goals and productivity for humanity post 2015 -what's open education's role in this economically , socially, humanly and in borderless celebration of every goodwilled local culture?

 Back in 1972 our family first saw students experimenting with elearning networks. Our father who was passionate about ending poverty started writing up the coming of the internet as the greatet entrepreneurial revolution the human race had ever needed to mediate. The rest of our family has had an amateur curiosity for education, Here are 10 other most joyful hapenings linking in the education valuing millennials -please vote for others that we could be celebrating here. The idea that we find most joyful to explore comes from surveys of people recognised to be most accomplished - finding they maximise the per cent of their lifetime spent at the experiential edge of their own most unique competence. If you are able to score %% or up on that metric you will be a ,ost accomplo=ished being to walk this planet. Dismally pre-networlked world averaged less than 0.1% on this metric. Just impagine what could happen to human productivity and sustainability of we valued millennials networking in such a way that every youth was free to score at least 1%


 Banking on livelihoods of poorest vilage mothers and their children 1.0

Here's Muhammad Yunus sharing his views with 10 would-be New York disciples January 2008 - a month after he had invited me to travel to Bangladesh

IS MY The MOST MISUNDERSTOOD MAN IN THE WORLD? Now I trust as a minor family friend, you read this as a rehearsal of a big problem i have with the 21st C- why dont we help every young person who wants to have a mindset like Yunus social action small experiments to see whether their peers see them as good at building community and sustaing the future in a way that ends poverty and values potential of every livelihood.


This is what I heard Yunus say. Now there are much smarter people than me like the Clintons who fisrst visited Yunus in the late 1980s, and to the extent that they hear different lessons from Dr Yunus is something I'd happily post your coments on at

Microcredit as inaugurated formally by Grtameen Bank in 1983 was about training illiterate village mothers to earn livelihhods- it took nearly 10 years of research before Yunus dared promise that if circles of 60 village mothers would each take a loan they would be trained for a job wiating for them in a volage market they would also own.  begum final.doc begum final.doc, 75 KB  Read Mrs Begum's interview on how much hard work it was to design this. Note how forming health club networks preceeded any idea of mediating each circles savings and loans. And note the purpose that by 2008 nearly 8 million vilage mothers had linked into- income generation will help you move the whole community beyond the poverty line and your chilrens potential way beyond because everyone promises to seend all children to primary school

By 2008, Yunus had a bigger dream. This was to be the benchmark investment bank for all millennials collaborating to put poverty in a museum everywhere NOW!. He would seek out global partnerships with any hi-trust firm with brillant technolgy and open source an app  that villagers most urgently needed.  Well just 2 years later the ownership of such idea was taken away from him - I am not wise enough to understand global and local politicians to fully understand why.But I do suggest that we learn that investing in the next generation's livelihoods is a long-term chalenge that global accounting metriucs are worst in the world in sustaining. This is something I as a maths guy had 10 yeras of experience of working on intangibles valuation in the 1990s with most of the then Big 5. It saddens me that the biggest maths error in the world destroyed Yunus continued orchestration of his dream - if you have ideas on where we can reassemble goodwill valuation of millennials , love to hear them

 linkin here: job creating entrepreneur curriculum and apprenticeships


partners in south africa's job creating education have found 3 curricula that need to go all way back to primary - finacial literacy, empowerment, entrepreneurship that  serves societies positive imoacts


BRAC Informal village primary



Make blist


Schooling systems built from independence of a developing country are critical to inter-generational sustainability


BRAC is a benchmark for informal primary school system that joyfully values students and parents. Note Sir Fazle Abed was selected as WISE's inaugural laureate of education, and this led WISE networks to a year's search/report for job creating education models.. BRAC's schools today are the educational network Gandhi and Montessori would recognise as closest to their vocational vision for village schooling. Sir Fazle Abed notes that in BRAC's early days, his search for training suitable for illiterate adults led him to Paulo Freire's action learning approach. That breakthrough of educational mindset made it natural  that BRAC would evolve a montessori type model once it needed a solution that could replicated as a 40000 village schooling network,


How did this development happen to be trusted to BRAC? When Bangladesh was born, the government didn't have enough resources -let alone relationships with teachers - to do schools in villages. So BRAC prioritised introduced bottom-up primary schooling - the third of its first 3 villagers grassroots networking services- which started with bottom-up disaster relief and scaling of bottom-up para-health workers (see oral rehydration microfranchise 100).

City Montessori -world larest school and only unesco peace winner


Intriguingly India's continuation of nearly 90 year of Gandhi-Montessori knowhow is now stewarded by City Montessori school in Lucknow.; 50000 students a year keep this alive and ahead of any cross-cultural and peacemaking curriculum. This education treasure has been curated by one family- father, mother , two daughters and a son. Their education was so valued by Hindhi and Muslim parents alike that more and more of the city's schooling system is sustained by their public service. CMS has an UNESCO award not just for its peacemaking curriculum but its children practising this to save Lucknow from riots in 1990s.

Missing Curriculum: Financial Literacy


 One of the most interesting missing curricula of primary is financial literacy. The benchmark primary curriculum for this Aflatoun was developed out of an Indian orphanage.

Secondary scholarships and other interventions of Grameen Shikkha


The microcredit culture Bangladesh village mothers signed up to was while we try to move ourselves beyond the poverty line, move our children way beyond it by breaking generations of illiteracy. The bridge beyond the literacy goals of primary is actioned in secondary scholarships - an innovation of grameeen bank members. This is how Grameen Bank has emerged as an example of girl power investment banking and education as well as poorest village mothers banking. Grameen relationships with its 8 million mothers also connect with which of their girls are most capable to change the world through eg nearly free nursing college and which of their sons will be the greatest job creating entrepreneurs

x Dear Friends of African Millennials at World Bank

 am writing to ask whether some members of both African Societies might be interested in seeing a demonstration of the pan-african elearning satellite yazmi led by Ethiopian Diaspora (founder Noah Samara who Naila and I finally met last week)
Originally in radio version in the 1990s Noah's driving purpose at that time had been to share info so as  to minimise hiv. What was huge was negotiating across all african countries a common frequency- an advantage no other continent in the world enjoys for information programming as far as I understand
When I see the parallel challenge  (eg jim kim's video this week)  of ending ebola as fast as possible and need to restimulate the effected economies it seems to me that the 30 year knowhow of jim kim's and paul farmer's partners in health and our friends at BRAC who are active in both liberia and sierra leone due to support from George Soros needs to be distributed as action learning across grassroots networks

Earlier videos in this series have demonstrated that the biggest powers in energy markets are blocking clean energy, and the biggest powers in food markets are stifling nutrition and local food security. Are there other multi-trillion dollar markets that are putting the sustainability of our childrens; children at risk?

Back in 1982, editors of Entrepreneurial Revolution at The Economist issued a report on the first 10 years of dialogues on the coming of the internet. This report concluded that the worst crisis of all would be compounded if biggest powers in education prevented a revolution in job creation. Specifically pro-youth economists see the coming of the internet as the greatest opportunity to design a smart educational model whereas anti-youth economists see the internet as an extension if the television advertising age in controlling and dumbing down people.

Job creating educators are going to need the courage to give up 4 monopolies:

number 1 what knowledge is researched

number 2 what knowledge is distributed by their teaching

number 3 what knowledge is examined

number 4 what knowledge is accredited


In 2013,  the crisis of job creating education appears to be at a tipping point. For example, search MOOC and the celebrations around Salman Khan, Taddy Blecher and Muhammad Yunus hosted at the 10th Skoll world championships hosted at Oxord April 2013,

    50 years after his first social networking through colleges in the deep south, Atlanta's 2.1 role in future history of western culture charges Dr Muhammad Yunus with both the trust and the delight to re-empower youth with "I have a dream". The movement's opportunity is occasioned by youth entrepreneur networking gravitated around a summit uniting Nobel Laureates,  youth's open worldwide networks and the Southern colleges that first made Dr Y a professor in the late 1960s when USA's practical civil rights were in their infancy. Civil Society isn't just a tag phrase to twitter out of Georgia. Come shake hands with the amazingly graceful lawyer of Rosa Parks to see how locally grounded love of global village trust-flows needs to be if sustaining a borderless planet is our net generation's united race, and capitalism's whole truth direction.
    Good NEWS? Represented across hemispheres by OsloDhakaAtlantaCape Town - The Twin Capitals movement of Youth Jobs summits can spin more valuable exchanges for youth to enjoy than 20th century Olympics and World Cups. But the critical microeconomics and civil society question remains: is your capital interactively banking on being a leader or a laggard of 7 billion peoples' freedoms? 
    US African Millennials NOW
    by Chris Macrae,
    Family Foundation Norman Macrae The Economist's pro-youth economist; fan of
    Last year US congress celebrated voting for the 21st Century gold rush proposed by Dr Muhammad Yunus - investing in women and youth who develop the freedom and happiness of sustainable livelihoods and peaceful trade starting with those with least resources. The review below searches out some of the best news this century that African millennials are primed to co-create and mobilize if we invest in their goodwill. And relates this to the unique proposition made to Dr Yunus during recent Martin Luther King anniversary celebrations: Atlanta wishes to be his favorite pro-youth Collaboration Entrepreneur Lab.
    NOW : dare we go beyond the first wave of millennium goals that were grand but did not consciously invest in youth's freedom out of every community?  
    Converging the 15th year of the Nobel Peace summit engagement with millennials coming of age is the bottom-up way ahead. Top-down are the invitations to millennials being made by the Korean alliance of Jim KIm and Ban Ki-Moon: with the mediation work being done 24/7 by the young professional associates at the World Bank and mobilized around the UN Global Partnership with Youth (GPY2015). Around this compass, let us map where African (& American) Millennials are turning the dream of ending poverty into reality of an united human race?
    Bravo Kenya:
    K1: In 1999 Jamii Bora starts up a worldwide revolution - the first microbank to put all transaction records on mobile thus bringing down costs of serving end-slum networkers- what microcredit designs were previously thought possible only in village mothers networks (eg Bangladesh). we now see how gangs of youth can be heroes of urban regeneration. In Africa's huge extended family settings, orphans demand family health insurance  integrated before  trusting microfinance- so Jamii Nora led the way with one of most economical group health insurance ever made by partnering missionary hospitals.
    K2 Kenya's firsts in banking-for-the-bottom-billion progress through JB to mpesa/safari (cashless banking apart from last mile) to kiva zip, to nanocredit inventor Julian Kyula- winner of 2013's IBM Entrepreneur of the Year award; NY patient capital funds like Acumen have also been inspired out of Kenya. 2013's report on mobile money for the unbanked reveals: there are now 60 million cashless banking accounts, with majority in sub-saharan Africa.
    K3 Ingrid Munro founded Jami Bora (JB) in her retirement after a professional life serving UN Habitat and a personal devotion to serving orphans.  So at the Kaputei branch of Jamii Bora (JB) just outside Nairobi's beltway, it was natural to demonstrate how to empower youth to build their own ecovillages. With a little knowledge multiplying help from Ingrid's friend the late great Nobel Wangari Maathai.
    K4 The Economist's 2012 Xmas issue asks: Is the Kibera slum the most entrepreneurial social lab on the planet?  Three years earlier in the run-up to Spain's global microcreditsummit, Queen Sofia demands testing of the JB model in over 60 southern nations faced with the challenge of slums. In the same year, JP Morgan NY headquarters stages JB's founder Ingrid Munro as trainer on sustainable billanthropy let alone pro-youth banking!
    K5 Years before Kenya's youth star is born, the social business pop group TheGreenChildren can be found celebrating with Ingrid; the joyful cluetrain rolls on in New York with Monica Yunus' singforhope and the UN's fashion4development offering celebrities unprecedented reach to grassroots movements including those tha US-Africa and US-Muslim millennials value most. Seattle's 2014 film festival premiers the movie of Ann Dunham's contributions as an unacknowledged giant : pioneering microcredit in Indonesia and helping found womensworldbanking

    K6 Kenya's youth ihubs design ushahidi software ("twitter plus GPS") - so that in Kenya, youth action networking ranges from helping to end riots caused by politics of elders to open sourcing solutions with youth wizards around worldwide exchanges of collaboration entrepreneurial revolution. As The Economist foresaw in 1984: the net generation can be defined as that which searches for 10 times more economic value in collaboration between peoples than competition over things
    K7 The Bridges primary schooling system (goal to serve 10 million poorest children by 2023) becomes one of the fastest growing, effective and economical on the planet

    E1 Beaming knowledge to everyone: 
    Ethiopia's launch of Africa's first satellite was led by Noah Samara whose dream was to free life critical info (eg how to prevent spread of aids). He is now focusing on elearning. Also last time we checked in with $100 laptop/tablet friends at MIT's Media Lab, Addis Ababa was becoming its African epicentre.
    E2 Ethiopian's coop farmer structure provides one of the 2 loci (farmers & spiritually/consciously linked customer communities) that whole truth value chains are composed round. They need to take back (as the French would say "entrepreneur") most of the 90% of costs caused by middlemen. For how, see DC's Inauguration of the US Africa Diaspora summit June 2014
    A1 The continental satellite tv broadcaster africa24tv aims to search out good news of industry leaders trying to develop sector self-sufficiency by and for africans;
    A2/K8 Africa24tv's co-founder was inspired by Mo Ibrahim - the first mobile telecoms billionnaire to sell out of telecoms (cellnet anchored around Kenya) and devote his family's future fortunes to prizing bottom-up leadership
    A3/K9 MIT team linkin with Mpesa's tech wizard NIck Hughes so that cashless banking can come to Bangladesh BRAC's world leadership of banking with values gives it the authority to hunt out massive partnership entries into Africa and across girl effect networks - like Mastercard Foundation in Uganda , and Gates Foundation in Tanzania.
    A4 Partners in Health worldwide intervention in developing a drug for HIV taught Jim Kim why and how to rework Porter's Value Chain maps from top-down to bottom-up. Without Africa's urgent need the World Bank wouldn't be emerging today as leader of pro-youth economics
    A5 Enjoy the web hosting of the UN's Global Partnership with Youth GPY2015 is staged by the ITU led by African IT activist Dr Hamadoun Toure
    A6 Monitor Yunus partnership with the African Development Bank as an incubation network of young social business entrepreneurs is launched starting out of Tunisia and Uganda

    SA1  Back in 1999, 
    South Africa's own entrepreneurial revolution took a leap forward with  the foundation of free universities for job creating entrepreneurs thanks to Porter's former value chain accountant Taddy Blecher. Watch out for free university partnerships  starting with E-cubed
    SAE1 Blecher partners with Maharishi -curriculum of Empowerment
    SAE2 Blecher partners with Branson - curriculum of Entrepreneurship and Bteam and Mandela Elders reconciliation methods. This good news celebration came about after Branson's TV reality Apprenticeship discovered Sara Blakely as its Social winner. She not only linked Branson in with Blecher but has become Atlanta's youngest billionnaire through her own womens enterprise Spanks
    SAE3 Blecher partners with google  -whose curriculum of E-includes offering free web site to South African small enterprises that host youth apprenticeships
    YEEES: with the approval of the South African government Youth Entrepreneur curricula are now being extended to 14 million school children with the goal of creating one million jobs by 2020
    SA2 Cape Town Oct 2014 hosts the Youth Nobel Laureate summit -a best for the world chance for African Millennials to train up to social action networking  Mandela's legacy
    SA3 Cape Town youth also motivated George Soros' 1978 transformation into a philanthropist. Structurally his last 35 years of investments have focused on open society and - rethinking economics from the ground up. Practically it was Soros who provided Yunus the funding that started Grameen Phone- ensuring the pro-poor focus of Bangladesh's first mobile telecoms network.
    SA4 Rewind the world to 1906 and it was South Africa that turned the mindset of Mahatma Gandhi from that of a Bar of London barrister to
    "The inventor of a completely new and humane means for the liberation war of an oppressed country, and practised it with greatest energy and devotion. The moral influence he had on the consciously thinking human being of the entire civilized world will probably be much more lasting than it seems in our time with its overestimation of brutal violent forces. Because lasting will only be the work of such statesmen who wake up and strengthen the moral power of their people through their example and educational works." Alfred Einstein.
    The whole concept of Satyagraha (Satya is truth which equals love, and agraha is force; Satyagraha, therefore, means truth force or love force) was profoundly significant to me. As I delved deeper into the philosophy of Gandhi, my skepticism concerning the power of love gradually diminished, and I came to see for the first time its potency in the area of social reform. ...

    2015 is 50th year since Yunus arrived in the southern states - the same year that US universities were first integrated; the 15th year since Atlanta has staged the most collaborative black student entrepreneur competition; and the 5th year since the state educators of Georgia and Alabama asked yunus to help turn Montgomery County Alabama into a social business zone - this being the usa's poorest county and the one where Booker T Washington's University Tuskegee is currently less than half filled




    collaboration exercise - preparing a tour for yunus around the future of 7 grameen businesses if understood by youth as star cases of open online university - all depends on reconnecting with right contacts first who could expand collaboration with youth's hunger to create jobs all over the planet

    example 1

    Jamii Bora provides one way. It invites Kenyan youth in slums to help regenerate the country through this sort of approach

    show that you can earn something by anon-violent means and we will invest in your business growing and after that if you like we will recruit you into our community banks staff or appoint you to build and property manage an ecovillage for the poorest or link you in to whatever are your generation's most wonderfully colaborative ideas on growing the sustainability of kenya

    the slums where jamii bora began in 1999 are according to The Economists's last issue of 2012 one of the most entrepreneurial places to network out of on the planet

    when 2008 elections caused violence it wasnt facebook or twitter that youth use to reconcile the nation but jamii bora methods and homegrown crowdmaps of usahidi and IHUB - fingers crossed that 2013 elections have enough youth protecting their after action transparency that Kenya's leading collaborations around africa and the world (eg mpesa's cashless banking) go from strength to strength

    global viillage education discussion exercise 2 jamii bora was founded in her retirement by the redoutable Swedish lady Ingrid Munro - how do we collect a top 30 twelve minute presentaions on the life lessons of ingrid and mrs nurjahan begum or other greatest mothers of microcredit which include the pioneering contributions that President Obama's mother made in Indonesia-  would it be wonderful if what began in banagkldesh, indoensia and kenya could alos help put youth back to work all over the world's cities

    email me and tell me what email of introductiion you want me to send between you and her; or ask me any questions you may have -eg how to access whole transcript or 45 minute film interview of mrs begum we made in 2008 in Dhaka; I have since been back to see Mrs Begum eight times- if there is a greater heroine in the world I would love to hear who you think that is!

    This site  The Web 

    Nobody I have ever met inspires me more on innovation of and dedication to village education that Mrs N Begum. Being a parent of a teenager of this extraordinary net generation -and one who is most frustrated about the rotten curricula and modality of 21st C education in the worlds richest schools - I have spent quite a lot of my last 7 years searching for grassroots opportunities to meet great educators. I have found that those who do the most with the least actually have a lot that youth in schools governed by politicians in richer places need to action learn from. So this web is about:

    1 who else inspires me

    2) what might be Mrs N Begum;s next world class projects;

    3)  what has she already given the world.

    One remark before proceeding; I know that both Mrs B and I are most inspired of all by Dr Muhammad Yunus- part of what he does is of course education but he's got much much more to do in changing investments all round the world to be pro-youth instead of disinvesring in youth the way that errant macroeconomics is spinning . You can see examples of his heroic networking at spaces like or - so back to my number 1 heroine in education's world

     1 2 3

    more of educations most promising revolutions:

     open course ware at MIT is huge idea- I am not aware if any worldwide student communities connect to it by sharing peer learnings - eg is there a wiki of what students in different parts of the world have learnt that they feel they wouldn't have if open cousre ware didnt exist - please chat with us if you are fans of open course ware

    intriguingly (a few yards away in boston) one of the best wikis I have ever see connects gthe community of practice of the $100 laptop- I wish I understood the full story of where Negroponte hasn't wholly been able to test $100laptop the way he wants and whether the rumored $100 tablet and increasing use of addis abba as an african meta-hub will be ways forward ; what amazes me is the things that wouldnt exist in their present form if it hadnt been for timely interventions of Negropronte - eg MIT's Media Lab; I also wonder if it was inevitable that Intel and Negropronte as the 2 of the most exciting explorers of microedu for the poor had their fallout- by which I mean I wish that their peer networkers would increasingly find ways to get back together

    sir ken robinson is one of the clearest explainers of why we need an educational revolution but more info is sought on where the practice networks of sir ken are to be linked in

    now that sun is no longer direct scott mcneally baby, his newer baby curriki is well worth following

    its worth tracking what newark is doing with the $100 million it reportedly got from facebook's founder to do some radical changes in education -news welcome; if I could have a chat with the likes of Gatses Fpundation I would wish yto foreward the motion  that there are system interventions needed in american's consititutional and understanding of microentrepreneurship before we can empower worthy teacher movents like Teach for America to be paradigms that the erst of the world needs to look at first

    I am interested to hear views of which funding foundations bet the most chnage for the buck with the focus they choose - perhaps because of all the troubles linked into youth employment by banking;s recent subprime failures, some financially linkeed foundations are doing interesting projects, but mostly not in america  - see eg MasterCardFoundation  DiscoveryCardFoundation.S.Africa

    The New York Times today has a piece on by Randall Stross titledComputer Science for the rest of us discussing the growing movement to have computer science courses that build’s on Jeannete Wing’s paper on computational thinking.   I would argue that it’s not computer science for the “rest of us” but for everyone.    From basic science to the humanities, understanding essentials of computer science has become more important to student’s understanding of the world than the calculus is.  In fact, while I think calculus certainly has value from the hard to social sciences, its more essential that students have an understanding of computer science.

    Melanie and everyone interested in linking accra in as major good news hub of africanidol

     - I am passionate about quickly studying the case study of CEIBs in Africa - chinese business schools have a different learning model and Accra has become their experimental centre for this- try listening to the podast at

    it doesnt work in all brwosers

    do you have a contact in accra who would be interested in doing some intreviews with cibs- I want to publish something in journal of new economics and have budget of $2000

    if this can be a way of seeing if CEIBs will partner your april summit then all the better
