Hi Lesley - I want to use your education revolution piece in microcredsummit special issue to see if I can assemble a circulation list of africa's deepest educators, while Mrs Begum searches out asia's deepest educators with mostofa

 

@ Ghana: Have you or taddy heard of http://www.ashesi.org/ -at quadir's 3 day conference in boston this week,  where patrick Awuah is speaking

Ethical leadership • Innovative thinking • A new Africa

Since its founding in 2002, Ashesi (Ah-SHESS-ee) University in Ghana has empowered young Africans with the skills, and the motivation, to create a better future for Africa. Ashesi’s groundbreaking curriculum, unique in Africa, fosters critical thinking, problem solving, and a concern for others. Ashesi students are challenged to adapt their skills to Africa’s realities; as a result, over 95% of our 269 graduates have chosen to stay in Africa, where they contribute to efficiency, transparency and progress in a wide range of private and NGO enterprises.

Our US foundation connects you to this African-initiated enterprise
Ashesi was founded by Patrick Awuah (AA-wah), a Ghanaian who chose to leave his successful software career in the US to return home and promote progress in Africa. The Ashesi University Foundation, based in Seattle, Washington, USA, is a 501(c)(3) organization designed to help US and international donors support the University. The foundation was instrumental in helping Dr. Awuah establish Ashesi, and continues to inspire a global community.

Generous donors help fund scholarships for students in need, new programs and campus infrastructure. Donations

emerging notes on Legatum conference

As you may know my dad and I first reported that mobile connectivity could change the world back in 1984.
the 2 people I have ever met with the best chance of helping people link in with the mobile entrepreneurial revolution are
 
kazi huque who is central to intel's world ahead program http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/company-overview/world-ahead...
 
iqbal quadir - it was actually iqbal  in 1994 conceived grameen phone; as well as sorts of contacts below he works with berners lee at MIT, any of the people like mo ibrahim who have made billions from mobiles,  nick sullivan who is bringing out a new book on mpesa after his previous book hear me now, joint venture with BRAC and connecting almost anyone you choose at MIT- iqbal also edits a journal innovations that has the best papers on mobile entreprenoal revolution (iqbal is also backed by the person who started MIT enrepreneur centre 30 years ago and so has his fingers in MIT's strategy as the number 1 job creating university in the world with only 10 nations being responsible for more jobs than MIT alumni)
 
it turned out that the MIT Legatum conference had a regional special connection of africa as it was announcing 21 million dollars of funds from mastercard foundation which already is a large $45mn  funder of brac uganda http://www.mastercardfdn.org/brac.htm
 
I have highlighted in bold the 6 Africans I had particulary good conversations with.
 
Now I have to admit 2 overwhelming geedbacks from this conference:
 
Africas greatest entrepreneurs seem to be saying we dont need social busieness specifically we need all good business models and transparent leaders- with pharma, computing and mass media and horticulture four of the people I met look like being unstoppable forces for good in their sectors
 
When you map all the connections MIT have with mobile technology its unlikely that any meaningful mobile entrepreneurial revolution of ending poverty will happen without good connections through MIT. I am here to try and help anyone who believes Africans can enjoy this time and space
