compare other WRJ here - soros is america's top 2 philantropist along with giving fund of gates/buffett etc...AS FAR AS I CAN SEE
Soros foundations are a case uniquely worth because they have never suffered from one of the ailments of not for profit world which like government seems to absolve itself from the discipline of positive cashflow - see next right;
very best cases of soros:
**south africa seeding fight against apartheid-see far right
**global fund helping jim/kim /farmer in middle of global fund early 2000 -see mid right and apparently its sad ending feb 2022 with death of paul farmer following covid and death of fazle abed leaving jim kim in boston in his mid 60s with (haiti rwanda) but only a charity ,model? 
**finding bangladesh women empowerment second time -ie partnerships with fazle abed finding bangladesh first time-more middle right
** the huge impact of being first to partner poorest villagers with mobile phones (below 1995 on)
**the complicated partnership with gorbachev -middle 
**the call to unite graduates around the world who want to collaborate across alumni groups in their race to be the sustainability not the extinction generation
what I love about all these things - they were worth a try -apparently soros didn't blame anyone as long as they tried their best with his money
Entrepreneurs advancing the human lot (according to 150 yeras of diaries the economist 1843-1990 - has happened when a founder of a solution people need has deigned a positive cash flow model round the purpose of maximising peoples affordable access. So if not for profits are about systems that fail to help communities entrepreneurially start up positive cash flow models to resolve communities sdg needs I am unsure what the purpose is.WHITES WRONGS -even if you are a daispora sct- the curse of being a white european (less than one eight of the human race) is we did slave trade, genocide across the new world as well as gun fights in which texas became the operating system of the usa (oil power, enough gun power to force mexicans to sell the west coast) even as dc apparently mediated over laws, colonisation -britannia having first access to engines but being repelled by usa doubled up under the worst corporation the world has ever seen colo0nising south asia and closing china to world trade for over a century as the chinese sensibly declined to accept opium as a currency- the consequ7nece of the human wrongs was world war 2 - the un was birthed around 3 challenges - seeing the advanced economies kick start; outlasting stalin -sadly one od the 2 maddest men to rule would win world war 2 as they were on opposite sides; helping the 75% of people that white empires had left out of access to engineering as they grew their places (with independence); depending how you look at history 1945-1989 - human development did some amazingly positive things to the death of jf kennedy; it stopped doing anything but outlast the cold war; from the early 1980s as it was clear ussr was not sustainable soros did the decent thing of trying to help gorbachev and when he lost inside russia started the open society foundation with him and backed parallel networks situated on the boundary between rome and the vatican- particularly gorbachev chairing of the nobel peace laureate summit which shared the same secretariat as the green club of romeI am aware that soros and jim kim and paul farmer found each other at start of 21st century; this was very good because between them bush's only totally positive impact emerged : global fund - by clarifying overlapping needs in fighting tb and aids global progress was made in combatting both of these diseases - the very best of this progress was wherever kim-farmer-soros also found brilliant bottom up health service networks; in many ways these continued what unicef's james grant had done; when they all found sir fazle abed (bangladesh woemn empowerment) as did bill gates this was one of the great leaps forward for humanity; peculiarly soros had also hugely helped bangladesh around 1995 though i have never seen his foundation take full credit for being first to invest in mobile ends poverty (help needed to understand)....I was at argubalky sors' hapiest moment reurning to his ciry of birth 2012- celebarting sir fazle abed as 20th open society laureate; paul farmer gace a side lecture; ceu university looked lik e a becaon for freedom - within a year of two budapest was flooded by refugees; the government5 turned right and against soros; eu joined in making it impossible for the university to keep its students both safe and free of speech - requiring a move to vienna whcich has ben slowed down by covid

for me this is also a tragedy ; maybe i was starry eyed but my first and only visit to budapest saw the convergence of 3 great heroes - fazle abed whose empowerment has reached billion poorest village women; the birth place and education system that grew von neumann - whose tech advances we have been compounding 100 fold since 1955; and soros... ..
Can anyone help me i understand soros first foundation intervention supported south african black youth end apartheid ; clearly that was on the correct side of history; as far as I know soros only claims a small part of that but it convinced him he could do good;

Hello friends of sustainability and Preferential  Option Poor curricula on 5 billion person elearning satellite -main blog   (previously known as Yunus brand- -soros being the 1996 investor in both yunus and bangladesh's largest corporation)
Episode 1 water POP and 3rd anniversary of japan ambassador and sir fazle debate on elearning as only way back to millennials sustainability;11th anniversary since EU destroyed water angels network

Question to Dr Ranga
Until someone points me elsewhere I believe paul polak (see conversation tread below) is best solution connector to rachel rutos questions on water discussed by naila chowdhury and all the UN womens events of the last 2 weeks

 he is also well connected through mit where abdul latif water lab is connection that mostofa and I have spent long time making with toyota and best of everything japan brings to development world

Is it viable to offer him one free video ad on yazmi - I mean all his solutions are massive bottom up so the borderline between ad and education  (as in shelly's case) is positive anyhow

If we can start engaging him we can find out water he might also become a premier league education partner


30 march brac sir fazle abed celebrates with the first ever bangladeshi studies institute in the west - it will be hosted at UC Barclays san francisco campus- its an absolute priority to go film some content with brac that works on elearning channels- otherwise coursera will take over brac partnerships and we'll get locked out

Thank you Chris - We do feel that it will be a fit for Kenya as we continue to grow and prove out our concept in India.  Please continue to follow us and our work as we continue to grow.  We look forward to potential collaborations in the future

How would you test optimality of model in Kenya if capital is solvable and nation's leadership is wholly behind finding most sustainable model for poorest women empowerment

Are acumen still your representative for this in new york for kenya or who does Naila talk to. Naila worked over nearly 20 years  as dr yunus first female director of grameen phone and now aims to link first ladies to best end poverty solution, The demand for finding best model of affordable water for poorest kenyan women comes from Kenya's second lady.

Your last mile design paul is extremely important - best I have seen with possible exception of someone like paul farmer who's focused on one professional area - so thats why I wouldnt have wanted kenya to miss your work if you feel it fits some regions of Kenya

Hello -

Thank you for the question.  We are first launching in India but hope to move to Kenya at some point in the next few years if possible as the model is developed and capital is raised.  Thank you
