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;

please can we confirm best time eg does 9am east coast time tuesday work- any time's good for me but i assume early is best not to get too late in india

i am updating a lot of research on soros networks which i hope to be able to send by next weekend

there are a lot of complicating factors but the first question i would like to debate is which indian  university partner would be best for osun  launched by soros jan world economic forum to converge impacts of all his lifes knowhow/solidarite with societies- in other words is there one uni vice chancellor that all of you trust most as well as seeing compatible with soros and eg tatas circle of top ndia founding business families

whats complicated at least as i search
soros is over 90 - in legacy phase of life
he has several progeny- as far as i can see alex soros is the society leader

soros has 2 main boards at new york offices that are about 3 blocks apart

the investment fund isnt easy for me to identify members - great if you can

the global board of open society starts off clear enough here

tricky about global board is: only one educator botstein- however botstein has been vice chancellor for bard over 40 years, lives about hour north of soros at new york campus but has created 2 youth hubs in new york- the osun annoucement says all 20 first partners coordinate through botstein but i am told by some of his new york staff that no getogethers happened before the virus lockdown- a big one had been intended in vienna as early as april then june but that too has been postponed  botstein is also world class musician and author book calling for revolution in us education 11th, 12th grade inner cities - but his people are only just experimenting with online zoom - arizona state is stated as main online partner across osun which makes sense because craig barrett former intel ceo made this retirement purpose but i cant yet find any connection of arizona state and rest of osun

when i say the board has no people who do education -of course soros himself founded central european uni 30 years ago and just last november as the krishnans know it moved from budapest that i had visited to vienna

to add to complications many believe that soros unique success as philanthropist was last mile health especially infectious disease control - jim kim paul farmer boston fazle abed bangladesh but there is no direct boston representation at osun- after 13 months of disappearing from youth summits jim kim announced 2 weeks ago he has left the infrastructure investment back and gone back to boston partners i health to empower boston as a benchmark us city for tracing- so another overlap with core purpose of batra family and partners

i will keep looking but on the open society leadership teams i cant yet find who soros trusts most on india's fifth of world population sdgs - hoping you can search what i have so far failed to clarify

cheers chris -tours - lockdown location 20 minutes walk us national institutes of health
