e would be 100 times moore of it each decade- so we need to map the whole of asia which is where over two thirds of people lived and at time of moon landing the majority of those people still had no access to electricity grids or other infrastructures that had been key to development during the industrial age
in terms of peoples needing priority development solutions it makes sense to map 4 areas -
the far east islands which japan was now distributing win-win trades with tyhrough estraordinary eadvaces in civil and transport engineering as well as microelectronics
south asia which can be thought of as between latitude north 30 and the equator- about 40% of humans lived there including nearly 25% in india and what was then called the 2 pakistans (from 1971 east pakistan finally became the independent nation of bangladesh)
north and central asian people were landlocked or iceblocked- their problems were the opposiite of the densely popuilated and humin south asia - huge lads lots of energy reources little capital to develop, regimes that as stalin epitomised had become very top down in the era that the horse or other aniumal was fastest way to commubicate
-at a greater level of details - we can map south asia under latitude 30 -
as what the eng,lish em;pi9re called middle east ie west asia
what english empire called india subcontinent ie 2 paksutans and india
the rest which calls itself asean or south china
-whats importantant to note is that there was enough of inland south china to need the same priority community devleopment solution and girl empowerment as bangladesh and the rest of natiosn facing south asian coast
in fact on thre occasison in 1972, 1996 and 2018 the grartet leaps in huamn sdgs were linked in bet6ween china and eg bangaldesh

1 Definitions of millennials
I optimistically like to define #2030now round this search aligning social impact vision of Jim Kim and World Bank since 2012
I try to define millennials inclusively -primarily round 3 ideas:
professionals aged 25-40 in 2015 are potentially most educated, connected and sustainability collaborative the world has ever celebrated
those born from 1984 - ie either their they found their livelihoods started (age 16) in new millennium or both their education and livelihoods were born to be millennial. By millennial I mean principally 2 things- web or mobile connectivity changes everything you action or learn; there were some worldwide goals to navigate valuation of purpose of human race
elders (or anyone not included in 1,2) whose live by investment models or open technology designs which value millennials
-question 1 - if I havent included your scoping of millennials please comment
2 Examples of Millennials Who's Who
My peer groups and I are most passionate about exploring these mapping legends
Future Capitals being places with a world impacting institution that is supporting an exponentially rising valuation of millennials - examples DC has 2 cases I find most valuable to map - world bank since 2012, OAS since ; whereas Dhaka was the first capital to bring mobile connectivity to the villages in 1996 and its support of mocro0creditsummit from 1997 became one of the spaces that continuously debated millennium goals =which capitals do you continuously search through to linkin valuing millennials
Practice areas- eg health millennials as of 2015 are a benchmark practice area open social invitations to join them ( see alumni mentored by eg Kim , Farmer or Abed); also review how those with longest learning curve of mobilising end of digital divides repeatedly come back to health as a test practice. Open Learning campus millennials may be at one of the critical tipping points of the next 3 years- at least I hope so as I will be in university class of 2015-2018. In this regard Atlanta may be a key US player of Future Capitalism http://youthcreativelab.blogspot.com
By demographic cultures - such as gender (1 2 3) , faith, or national identity (note coming from scottish descendants a nation that mostly lives outside scotland- both resident and diaspora dynamics of national identity may inform mapping trust-flows)
Type of global social (or business or microfranchise) valuation model and how it transparently integrates valuation of millennials around compound impacts
Major conflict that everyone in the millennial network is connected to innovating systemically beyond
Question 2 -if I have excluded legend variables that matter to you -please discuss; otherwise lets get cataloguing (examples) who's millennials who
3 Has there been a particular moment when your or your family's future history was directly changed by exploring millennial possibilities. example my father's first job was with uk national development project in computer assisted learning 1972. This was anchored out of Leeds/Bradford - by then a relatively poor and multicultural part of the UK whose prime time had been during industrial revolution's early global markets for textiles. Three generations of our diaries questioning the coming entrepreneurial revolution of net generation have been continuously published since 1972
Question 3 - taking as long a view of intergeneration change as you can, which innovation issues do you prioritise as being next tipping points of #2030now?
can find which millennials of african or chinese diaspora want to link these constructs we have unique trade that all sustainable jobs creating millennails can then join in with
ma hypothesis 1 - why not design internet so a continent's largest market frees everyone to market their produce
-he's designed that for china - he does this by calling his virtual markets supersellers those who most deeply source produce from people sustaining their communities
ma's 2nd hypothesis is that data has only be massively organised by the biggest organisations - why not design the cloud and mobile so all the peoples can access mobile answers from big data;s analysis - this sounds compatible with the grameen intel idea to me
The african idea is a reality not a hypothesis - having an elearning satellite with continent-wide reach www.yazmi.com
Perhaps there are other empowerment solutions (eg africa's nanocredit) to connect in the same dialogue- however if enough millennials know how to connect all of the above at the same time then we can get back to the internet of berner lee's dreams- "The Web as I envisaged it, we have not seen it yet. The future is still so much bigger than the past." Tim Berners Lee

Entrepreneurial Revolution's 42nd annual update of Who's Open Education Who
Over the 24 months of 2014-2015 we will be reporting connections between youth summits wherever we can linkin and assemble micro-wikis around the above issues - you can help us here:Googledoc the most collaborative 24 month race youth have played
in mind which depend on how transparently and lovingly we all connect open systems and open societies...
HV1 he had diarised the mess that the NHS started around in 1948- so a 2 times less costly service was certainly possible;
HV2 he believed that to invest in innovative quality (and not to make the nhs a ponti scheme on the next generation) some charges needed to be made in smartly chosen apps ;
HV3 he also believed that there were certain most costly medical interventions that a public service should never go near.
2 cubed means up to 8 times more value can be searched out and collaboratively systemised and that doesnt even include the bonus multipliers he hoped would be designed in as the net connected everyone rounding reducing degrees of separation as far as life critical information flows can be mapped
quite frankly if we helped youth use the coming decade to 2025 to get on the pathway to only 4 times more valuable health care that would bring back full time employment to youth but if we dont aim for that - we will probably not even turn round something that is exponentially accelerating towards 16 times more costly - a syndrome the American futurist used to call health and safety fascism. There comes a point where failed health systems make it too costly to health or safety to get out of bed each day or to afford a bed anywhere near decent work. Note also that there is more than one least value health system in the world - from the archetypal UK NHS to the appallingly costly and neurotic American health system.
The good news is that if we could learn both's muddles there would be even more value to share with worldwide youth's futures. And this becomes a media problem- one that there is not a bats chance in hell that hyper-commercial media will lead 21st c humanity to but which Norman desperately hoped nations with massive public broadcasting could have questioned. In other words not only are there within system risks to remove but many of the greatest risks to youth multiply across the different practice areas. Again the good news is open education platforms can resolve this but only if we design such platforms to test out curriculum youth have never been free to study before. Let's hope Khan Academy gets that in every way the hundred times more resourced coursera appears not to -unless youth collaborate by doing what past Indian President Kalam asked about a decade ago - please young people (and parents of young people) please tear up any non-sustainable curriculum before 2020.
s set out in the Girl Summit Charter (click here for English,French or Arabic)
28 Too Many Following the Girl Summit 28 Too Many will work with a partner to develop a youth focused project which uses our research findings to develop tools and resources for community based action to tackle FGM.

Audacious Dreams Foundation, India We will teach about Adolescent health issues and civic citizenship for Rural girls
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Understanding the Economic Impacts of Child Marriage –International Center for Research on Women and the World Bank ($4 million over 3 years) – Supported by BMGF, in partnership with CIFF, ICRW and the WB will conduct a ground-breaking research grant to evaluate the economic costs of child marriage. It will generate robust global, regional and country analysis of the economic consequences of child marriage, and help to reposition the issue within global development.
Tostan ($2.7 million over 4 years) – BMGF has awarded this grant to strengthen Tostan’s systems for monitoring, learning and adaptation of their Community Empowerment Program in 6 West African countries. This will help them to better understand factors that contribute to success in their work on governance, education, health, environment and economic empowerment.
Request for Proposals (RFP) for Adolescent Reproductive Health and Nutrition in Ethiopia ($6 million over 5 years) focused on reducing gender inequities.These grants will seek to improve adolescent reproductive health and nutrition in Ethiopia by addressing structural determinants, including early marriage, amongst the most vulnerable girls. The foundation seeks to expand the body of work and knowledge in the adolescent health field by investing in innovative programs that show proof of scale and proof of impact, and are supported by national policies to change social norms that adversely affect adolescents’ ability to transition to a healthy and productive life.
BRAC (1) Awareness campaign at family/ household level.
(2) Community mobilisation involving youth and mass people using neighbourhood platforms.
(3) Human rights and legal aid services to the victims of child marriage and survivors of violence.
(4) Survivors support, psychosocial counselling and life skill development.
(5) Research and learning.
breakthrough Breakthrough is working towards changing the social norms and traditions that perpetuate early marriage across two states in India - Bihar and Jharkhand. We are working towards this cultural shift by riasing the awareness of communities where this practice is prevalent through community mobilisation and engagement using cultual tools like the 'Theatre of the Oppressed.' Anew generation of youth leaders are also simultaneously being trained to lead the change. Breathrough is also training service providers and actively networking with them to ensure a 360 degree approach towards tackling this social evil.
BSR (Business for Social Responsibility) BSR will organize a webinar for our corporate members to discuss the role the private sector can play to support girls’ health and empowerment, including addressing and bringing awareness to sensitive issues such as female genital mutilation and child marriage.
Campaign for Popular Education (CAMPE),Bangladesh
CAMPE is a coalition of more than 1000 NGOs working across Bangladesh ensuring access to quality basic education for all. This includes the basic element of gender justice and equity.
- CAMPE activities to be carried out:
- Organize/ Integrate with CAMPE programs
- Carry out media advocacy
- Promote messages on CEFM in monthly bulletin, newsletter published by CAMPE and CAMPE website
- School Campaign
Canada 1. CEFM in the Post-2015 Development Agenda – Canada will continue to drive forward international engagement on CEFM. This year, the top priority is to build consensus for a target on CEFM in the post-2015 development agenda. We will work with partners around the world to this end.
2. Partnership with UNICEF– Canada is contributing $20 million over two years to UNICEF toward ending child, early and forced marriage. The project aims to accelerate the movement to end child marriage in Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Yemen and Zambia by supporting efforts in these countries to strengthen programming and political support to end the practice. We are pleased to be working in close coordination with the UK and the Netherlands, who are also partnering with UNICEF.
3. African Union Campaign to End Child Marriage – Canada knows that the leadership of high-prevalence countries is essential in efforts to end CEFM. We are pleased to provide support to the African Union Campaign to End Child Marriage.
4. Royal Commonwealth Society – Canada will provide institutional support to the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS). RCS engages with youth, civil society, business and governmental networks to address issues that matter to the citizens of the Commonwealth, and its primary focus is the promotion of young people throughout the Commonwealth. Canada will support the efforts of the Royal Commonwealth Society to raise awareness in Commonwealth countries about the need to end CEFM.
5. Canadian Focus - Canada is committed to strengthening our domestic and consular approach to ensure that CEFM does not occur on Canadian soil or affect Canadians abroad. The Criminal Code protects against a broad range of criminal offences that may be committed both prior to and following a forced marriage. We will continue to build our capacity to help Canadians facing forced marriages abroad as well as victims upon their return to Canada. In 1997, the Criminal Code was amended to clarify that aggravated assault includes female genital mutilation.
CARE International CARE is committed to women’s and girls’ empowerment globally and recognizes that international development and human rights goals will never be achieved as long as girls and boys are condemned to a life of poverty and inequality through child marriage practices.
To this end, CARE commits to the Tipping Point initiative, a project lasting through 2017, which addresses child marriage in Nepal and Bangladesh and leverages advocacy and influencing opportunities in the U.S. and globally. The project is generously supported by The Kendeda Fund.
Through Tipping Point, we will work with girls, boys, men, women, and community leaders to critically explore the factors that sustain child marriage practices and innovate ways to alter the forces perpetuating child marriage; bring different actors together—including men and boys—to build social movements for change; support sustainable, social and economic alternatives for girls that allow them to have more options in their own lives; and connect activists across regional and national networks.
This includes CARE’s commitment to:
Invest US $6.6 million over the next three years addressing the root causes of child marriage and influencing advocacy opportunities in the US and globally;
Work to reverse the tide against child marriage in 16 sub districts of Nepal and 90 villages of Bangladesh;
Actively pursue collaborative learning with program participants, partners, governments, and researchers and contribute to broadening the dialogue on the root causes and multiple dimensions of child marriage practices, and on strategies to end those practices;
Utilize learning and analysis of root causes of child marriage to influence public dialogues in Nepal and Bangladesh; including strengthening social movements and partners’ capacity to conduct advocacy at national and sub-national level and influence policy dialogue around the issue;
Mobilize and engage with strategic partners, coalitions and decision-makers in Nepal and Bangladesh to influence key national and global dialogues and policy processes;
Build on CARE’s long history of advocacy on child marriage within US foreign policy as co-chair of the Girls Not Brides-USA coalition. CARE will continue to work with partners through GNB USA to execute on multi-year advocacy strategies aimed at influencing the U.S. governments to actualize policy commitments to end child marriage as well link to global advocacy opportunities, including the post 2015 dialogue as appropriate;
Implement innovative monitoring of U.S. government implementation of the US Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based-Violence Globally and child marriage policy commitments, in collaboration with the Aspen Institute.
Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) If we are to end child marriage within a generation, we need quality evidence to better understand its costs to girls, families, communities and societies. CIFF is partnering with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the International Centre for Research on Women, and the World Bank to conduct new and important research on the economic case for ending child marriage.
Christian Aid will demonstrate that we are making a significant contribution towards a reduction in gender based violence and specifically to changes to the social norms which promote or condone it. In particular, we will scale up our work with faith groups working with both women and men to challenge and change social norms around gender based violence including harmful traditional practices such as early and forced marriage, female genital cutting, dowry and bride price.
Clemence Tauya Nhliziyo Supporting the initiative on social media
Dawson Cornwell We will continue to support victims of FGM, Forced Marriage and Honour Based Violence in offering legal aid or pro bono assistance where legal aid is not available.
We will continue to provide legal training and advice to NGOs who operate in this field including Southall Black Sisters, The Sharan Project, Karma Nirvana, IKWRO, The Henna Foundation, Forward, The FMU and others.We will continue to support the introduction of legislation to give greater protection, by way of civil injunctions, to victims or potential victims of FGM and support the creation of a civil statute.

I am doing a global campaign to end FGM and CEFM and awareness raising
I will totally commit myself into doing awareness raising , campaigning everywhere in schools , in the community and conferences including religious leaders, health workers, young people , un agencies, professionals , teachers , other organisations . And social media
ECPAT International By end-2015, ECPAT will lead efforts for an agreed upon definition, among major INGOs, UN agencies, Civil Society Networks, for situations of child marriage that constitute the commercial sexual exploitation of girls.
By mid-2015, ECPAT will complete a high quality research paper on how CEFM, in some cases, leads to the sexual exploitation of girl victims of such marriages through prostitution, pornography and/or trafficking.
By mid-2015, all member organisations of the ECPAT Network in 75 countries are informed, facilitated and encouraged to raise awareness of CEFM through local and national efforts.
By early-2015, all member organisations of the ECPAT Network working directly with victims of CEFM will be encouraged to consult with victims in order to bring their voices into the formulation of legislation and action.
Over course of the next year, ECPAT will raise awareness of CEFM through social media messaging on our official channels, including Facebook and Twitter.
End FGM/C Social Change Campaign The End FGM/C Social Change Campaign will galvanise an Africa-led, global movement to end FGM/C in one generation. We will use a range of social change communications approaches at community, national, regional and international levels to bring about a social transformation in attitudes, promoting the value of girlhood without FGM/C. We support national social change campaigns in ten focal countries (Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, and Sudan).
(1) Hold governments accountable to their international and regional commitments to end CEFM and FGM
(2) Call for the repeal of sex discriminatory laws that contribute to CEFM and FGM
(3) Advocate for implementation of the human rights framework by all governments to end CEFM and FGM
Ethiopia Ethiopia commits to achieving the total elimination of FGM/C and Child, Early and Forced Marriage by 2025 through a strategic, multi-sectorial approach. Our goal is also in line with Ethiopia’s objective to reach middle income country status, with the country’s overall development being closely linked to greater opportunities for women and girls. Our approach puts girls at the heart of our commitment, working closely with them, their families and communities, to end these practices for good and break the cycle of harmful traditional practices. We will achieve our aim through a four pronged approach:
Through incorporating relevant indicators in the National Plan and the National Data Collection Mechanisms including the 2015 Demographic and Health Survey to measure the situation of FGM/C and CEFM and to establish a clear bench mark
Through enhancing the coordination and effectiveness of the Alliance to End Child Marriage and the National Network to End FGM by engaging different actors with key expertise
Through strong, accountable mechanisms for effective law enforcement
And, an increase in financial resources to eliminate FGM/C and CEFM from the existing budget by 10%
European Commission The European Commission will support actions to:
Achieve gender equality and wellbeing of children,
Organise awareness-raising campaigns on violence against women, including FGM (in the European Union);

FAMILY PLANNING ASSOCIATION OF INDIA (FPAI) To empower girls about their rights through awareness, education and advocacy by taking it on as part of our routine projects. Promote Comprehensive Sexuality Programmes in school through a signed petition on www.change.org
We will commit to undertake the responsibility of educating girls at both rural and urban levels about their rights. Souls are not male or female. After sharing the knowledge, ideas and plans discussed and initiated by the youth and adults at the summit, I will share the same with our organisation (FPAI). FPAI plans to then conduct programmes with youth both at rural and urban level to educate them about the many issues and involve them to get their ideas to bring an end to the same. Girls- we are as beautiful, and as powerful as any other soul in the universe. The society will help us, but it is up to us -- women to organize our strengths, individually and collectively; it is up to us to reach out and empower ourselves.

Girls Not Brides Expand and empower the movement: The Girls Not Brides partnership’s 358 civil society members hail from 63 countries around the globe to end child marriage and enable girls to fulfil their potential. We recognize that ending child marriage will require further expanding the breadth, diversity, coordination and capacity of the Girls Not Brides partnership and the wider movement to end child marriage. We commit to bringing on 100 new members a year, to educating and engaging new champions, and to building the influence and coordination of member organisations and our partners through a new series of capacity-building webinars and meetings. Deadline: End of 2015.
Help identify what works and how we measure it: As a global partnership, Girls Not Brides works to ensure that new and existing evidence – particularly on the solutions to child marriage and on insights emerging from non-traditional sources – is shared widely. Building on our work to develop a ‘Theory of Change on Child Marriage’, Girls Not Brides commits to launching a process to bring together experts and practitioners to identify indicators to measure progress and impact on child marriage. Deadline: July 2015
Hold governments accountable: Girls Not Brides will continue to advocate for major inter-governmental processes and fora, as well as governments in high-prevalence countries, to commit to taking action on child marriage. In particular, Girls Not Brides will advocate for a target on child, early and forced marriage to be included in the post-2015 development framework, and for child marriage to be addressed in global and regional intergovernmental bodies. Deadline: End of 2015.
Expand the funding base: Lasting change has to happen on the ground and realising this on a meaningful scale requires adequate resourcing to support programmatic work. Girls Not Brides will therefore continue to advocate for an increase in long-term funding to address child marriage, from both existing and new donors, including funding from governments of high-prevalence countries. Deadline: Ongoing.
Raise the profile of promising national efforts: Girls Not Brides will bring attention to actions from around the world that have the potential to advance national efforts to end child marriage. In particular, Girls Not Brides will continue to advocate for the coordination of efforts to end child marriage in high-prevalence countries, the development and implementation of nation-wide plans and the meaningful inclusion of civil society in nation-wide responses. Deadline: Ongoing.
Global Fund for Women
To end FGM and Early and Forced Marriage we need to put money into the hands of courageous women and women's groups on the ground. The Global Fund for Women pledges to establish a dedicated Fund for grassroots activism by women and girls to make that happen.
Building on our 25 year track-record of funding creative, bold and talented women, our new fund will empower local groups around the world to scale up strategies that work and extend the impact of their ideas. Join us! Empower women and girls in Africa to create lasting change in their communities. We will use grants, organizational capacity building, and strategic convenings for learning and coalition building to address violence against women and girls.

Iranian & Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO) Through our Girls Group we, the Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Right Organisation (IKWRO) commit to developing young female leaders from Middle Eastern and North African communities as forces for change.
Irish Aid, the Irish Government’s official aid programme administered by the Department of Foreign A We recognize both FGM and CEFM as clear violations of the human rights of women and girls, and we are strong advocates in international fora, including the Human Rights Council, for the elimination of these practices and the promotion of gender equality. Gender Equality is promoted, protected and integrated across Ireland’s development cooperation programme and our commitment to gender equality was most recently reaffirmed in “One World, One Future”, the Government’s new Policy for International Development. Ireland has made clear calls for the high visibility of gender in the Post 2015 Development Framework and supported a number of targets to advance gender equality and ensuring the elimination of all harmful practices, including child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilation.
Through our development cooperation, we are working with governments, civil society actors, international organisations and the private sector to strengthen the legislative and policy framework to protect women and children, to raise awareness in communities of the risks of FGM and the benefits of delayed marriage, and to enhance the economic opportunities of girls and their families. We are strongly committed to promoting the empowerment of women and ending FGM and CEFM and we will continue to deepen our engagement with a range of partners to deliver on this commitment.
In the knowledge that gender inequality is a root cause of FGM and CEFM, and a key aspect of the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), we will champion for gender equality, and the end to harmful practices including FGM and CEFM in the Post 2015 agenda.
We will work with our partners at national, regional and global levels to accelerate action against FGM and CEFM, and will support key UN agencies, including UNICEF and UNFPA and their joint programme on FGM.
As a member of the Irish Consortium on Gender Based Violence, we will work in coordination with Irish humanitarian, development and human rights agencies, and the Irish Defence Forces to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, including FGM, and engage in the development of the second national plan on FGM.
With poverty and insecurity as key drivers of early, child and forced marriage, we will work with and through our government and nongovernmental partners to promote the economic empowerment of women and girls and support the implementation of appropriate and sustainable social protection programmes, focussing on the very poorest households.
Mindful that pregnancy in adolescence, common in child marriage, and FGM are closely linked to complications during childbirth, we will support efforts that reduce maternal and infant mortality, and promote universal access to reproductive healthcare, including ante-natal care and family planning services, consistent with the Cairo Programme of Action.
We will support girls’ education beyond primary school, cognisant that girls educated to the secondary level have been found to be less likely to marry early or to allow their daughters to be subjected to FGM.
Within our research strategy, we will invest in research that contributes to the body of evidence on empowering women and girls, decreasing gender inequalities and reducing gender based violence, and will support research to better understand and respond to the social, economic and development challenges and opportunities faced by children and young people.
We will be committed to working with front-line practitioners, young people, the community and perpetrators in order to raise awareness, educate and prevent forced marriages. We will also continue to provide holistic support to victims.
Ending CEFM and FGM must be a global priority.
Japan Japan intends to implement ODA in excess of USD 3 billion over 3 years from 2013 to 2015 to realize “a society where all women shine.” Japan’s policy priorities are: women’s empowerment, women’s health care, and women, peace and security.
In order to tackle the issues of FGM and CEFM, Japan will continue cooperating with UNICEF, UNFPA, IPPF along others, and the international community as a whole. As education empowers women and girls to take more control of their own lives, Japan will continue to provide cooperation in the field of education too.
Kani Touray, GAMCOTRAP As an intern of GAMCOTRAP and member of GAMCOTRAP youth advocacy group (GAMYAG), I plan to raise awareness amongst my fellow young people in order to share my experience and knowledge on Female Genital mutilation, Child, early and force marriage as well as other issues that are hindering the development of girls. I am also in youth groups where some people have no idea about these harmful issues and they need to be enlightened about the fact that girls are vulnerable too.
KARMA NIRVANA Engaging with 50 schools across the UK to raise awareness and understanding about early marriage amongst educators and safeguarding teams, implementing governments forced marriage guidance.

MAMTA- Health Institute for Mother and Child
Based on its earlier work and experiences on the issue of child and forced marriage, MAMTA-HIMC strongly supports the approaches that enhances self-efficacy of adolescent girls and boys; which are ‘gender transformative’ in nature and works simultaneously with both girls and boys; works towards making social/community norms gender equitable; and those that are founded in the safe space concept (again for both girls and boys) to provide an opportunity for meaningful engagement to girls and boys in marginalized communities. MAMTA-HIMC as always will continue to work with most marginalized population.
Organization in future aims to take on interventions based on these approaches while building robust evidences for each to support its scale up. Besides, organization will work towards strengthening system’s response to the issue by prioritizing the issue in the national, state and district agendas/plan of action.
MAMTA-Health Institute for Mother and Child, New Delhi, India, commits to the cause of ending Female Genital Mutilation and Child and Forced Marriages with focused work in South Asia. We believe in and support approaches that promote gender equitable norms and are gender transformative in nature. Gender, Sexuality and Rights are the crosscutting issues in our interventions with young men and women.
MAMTA-HIMC will continue working with local, national and international bodies especially at South Asia level to strengthen policies and actions on protecting and promoting the interest of the girl child. System’s strengthening and bringing multi-sectoral efforts to the cause along with community led actions will be the priority.
MAMTA-HIMC will intensively work to keep the issue high on national, state and district agenda while networking with other NGOs, CSOs, institutions and corporates and building their capacities to undertake actions to end such practices.

Niger Le Niger a réduit considérablement le taux de prévalence des MGF grâce à des actions mises en œuvre depuis 1998 ; ce qui a permis une réduction de plus de 50% : 5% en 1998 à 2% en 2012.
Mais il n’en est pas de même en ce qui concerne le mariage des enfants, précoce ou forcé, parce que les normes sociales condamnent les naissances en dehors du mariage ; c’est une question d’honneur pour la famille car une fille enceinte traduit un comportement léger de sa part et porte atteinte à l’honneur de sa famille; ce qui explique que les filles sont données en mariage très tôt - 76% des jeunes filles sont mariées avant 18 ans - et toutes les catégories de familles, qu’elles soient pauvres, riches, rurales ou urbaines, le pratiquent. Pour mettre fin à cette pratique, nous nous engageons à :
Développer et mettre en œuvre une stratégie visant à accélérer la promotion de la scolarisation et du maintien des filles à l’école -stratégie qui sera accompagnée par des actions visant à rendre effectif l’âge obligatoire de la scolarisation jusqu’à 16 ans, la poursuite et l’extension du programme d’allégement des tâches domestiques des femmes pour leur permettre de libérer les filles, et la mise en œuvre de la politique de protection sociale en faveur des populations les plus démunies ;
Mobiliser et créer une plateforme de travail avec les leaders coutumiers et religieux pour qu’ils soient des alliés dans la promotion de l’abandon des pratiques traditionnelles néfastes à la santé et au bien-être des filles et des femmes du Niger ;
Développer et mettre en œuvre des actions visant le renforcement des capacités des familles, des femmes, des adolescentes et adolescents pour susciter un changement de comportement et un changement des normes sociales nuisibles à l’épanouissement des femmes et des enfants, telles que les mariages des enfants et les MGF.

Over 300 students in the Gambia Petition and a pledge signed during a conference organised by Nusrat High School.
WE DON'T WANT FGM
We promise to complete our education without any interruption.
We will say no to early and forced marriage.
We will report any sexual harrassment and exploitation to the appropriate authorities.
Will report all unjust acts against girls.
We will break the culture of silence.
We will stand firmly and fight for our rights.
We will support each other in terms of difficulties.
We will respect and obey our parrents, teachers and our school authorities.
We will obey and abide by the rules and regulations governing our schools.
We will stand as a team to fight and eradicate maltreatments against girls.

Oxfam We will further integrate work on sexual and reproductive health rights within our My Rights My Voice programme, highlighting female genital mutilation (FGM) and child, early and forced marriage (CEFM), by increasing levels of rights awareness amongst youth and duty bearers and through our support to safe spaces for young people to discuss these issues with peers and allies.
We will build on our existing work at country level in this area. In Yemen, Oxfam is working with local women's organisations who continue to push for protection against CEFM in the constitution and in personal status law. In Yemen we will also continue to work with local women’s organisations to raise public awareness of the negative social and developmental impacts of CEFM. In the Philippines, through our support to national organisations, Oxfam will continue to work with local communities to address CEFM.
We will share best practice on addressing CEFM and FGM in the new Oxfam knowledge hub on Violence Against Women.
Addressing the broader gender injustice and inequality, which drives CEFM and FGM, is a key part of Oxfam's work. For example, in Myanmar, Oxfam will continue to work with women's networks to influence the drafting of the Ending Violence Against Women law, and will work to raise awareness on - and challenge - the structural inequalities facing women and girls. Oxfam has included the advancement of women's rights as foundational within its new Strategic Plan, and committed to the first confederation-wide Roadmap on how to do this, including within our broader programmes and influencing work. This will be implemented over the next 6 years, with timebound commitments agreed for 2014-2016.
We will continue to call for a strong stand-alone gender equality goal in the post-2015 framework and ensure this addresses violence against women and girls, including CEFM marriage and FGM, as a priority in Oxfam's advocacy work.

Restless Development A sample of our work with girls and young women in eight countries across Africa and Asia:
Tanzania: Mabinti Tushike Hatamu! (Girls Let’s be Leaders!)
Restless Development Tanzania is partnering up with UNICEF and the Tanzania Commission for AIDS on an award-winning programme which is reducing the vulnerability of adolescent girls aged 10-19 to HIV and AIDS, early pregnancy and gender-based violence.Sierra Leone: Teenage Mothers Clubs
In Sierra Leone, 41% of girls have begun child-bearing between the age of 12 – 14. For many young girls, once they fall pregnant they are no longer allowed to attend school leaving them highly dependent and vulnerable. They also struggle to access health services and become economically dependent. To address this issue, we have established Teenage Mothers Clubs which consist of young mothers and pregnant adolescents aged 12-17 years old.
Zambia: Tackling early marriage and teenage pregnancy
In the Western Province in Zambia, we are responding to the high rates of early marriage and teenage pregnancy through community-based awareness creation and education. This programme is empowering 5,000 young people to make safe choices regarding their sexual and reproductive health and rights as well as economic and social well-being. This is resulting in reduced vulnerability to STIs, HIV, teenage pregnancy and early marriage for young women. We are improving community leaders attitudes to girls’ rights and encouraging them to take action to build a protective environment where adolescent girls are valued.
South Africa: Youth Workshops on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights
Sexual violence is rife in South Africa which is often quoted as the rape capital of the world. In July 2013, UNFPA requested the support of Restless Development to conduct Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights workshop in the three districts of OR Tambo, Alfred Nzo and Amathole in the Eastern Cape.
The purpose of the workshops was to support the Department of Health to reach the most marginalised young people and provide them with education on the core areas of unplanned pregnancies, prevention and protection against HIV, STIs and gender-based violence as well as access to sexual and reproductive health services.

Encourage government to fast track the formulation of the birth and death registration policy- This will establish a robust birth and death registration system since birth registration is key in child protection as it determines age and helps hold perpetrators and accomplices accountable.
Lobby Central government and Local governments to provide necessary budgetary resources- This will improve child protection work in terms of creating community awareness, coordinating and strengthening child protection structures to adequately facilitate law enforcement agencies like probation office, police, and courts to improve their effectiveness.
Lobby Ministry of Gender, Labour and social development to develop a comprehensive child protection strategy, together with increased budget allocations. This is to guide interventions at all levels and will make a significant difference.
Stop Violence Against Children in and around schools. Corporal punishments are widely accepted and yet the harm our children. As a Forum we know that there are better effective approaches to child discipline as it is also against the Ministry of Education Policy.

Strengthening local child protection systems, for instance through community committees that address threats of FGM/C or child marriage, resolve them or refer the cases to district authorities.
Generating and using data to break the silence, track progress and inform action, by:Tracking the percentage as well as the number of girls and women married as children or experiencing FGM/C, within and across countries.
Developing indicators to track progress in changes in public attitudes about FGM/C, child marriage and gender equality.
Accelerating the registration of births and marriages, including through the use of modern technology like free SMS based communication.

I watch the nightly news out of as many countries as I can, 99% of economic correspondents remain anti-youth in everything they interpret - can we reform this ?
Young people have felt the brunt of the multiple-crises that have evolved since 2008's financial meltdown. Record-high unemployment levels, popular protests and the prospect of a lost generation have not yet elicited a coordinated and sufficient response.
The global youth unemployment rate is projected to reach almost 13 percent in 2013 -- the equivalent of 73 million young people, according to a new ILO report on Global Employment Trends for Youth. This is nearly the same rate as it was at the height of the economic crisis. Based on current projections, it is not expected to decline before 2018.
The situation varies between the developed and the developing world, but no country is immune.…

ROLES IN WORLD RECORD BOOK OF JOB CREATORS
Dear Friends/Parents of Livelihoods of Teenage Girls
Here is a 3 part idea - please say if one or all of you think it could be worth meeting to discuss how to maximise future interactions of students and millennials in our home region of Maryland and Washington DC please say.
In the yunus context
part 1 of this idea is to ask him which of these top 10 ideas he wants to co-edit youth viral postcards on - free nursing college has already been edited with him out of dhaka
part 2 of mediating connections with millennials future capitalism is introduced lower down
1 Yunus job creating olympics twinning future capitals - first wave invited by Atlanta Nov 2015 2 Yunus nearly free nursing college
3 MOOCYunus ; collaboration newsletters on girl powers other top 10 missing curricula of sustainability
4 Cross-cultural celebration fashion logo of united race to poverty museums (and responsible fashion sectors and superstars)
5 Social business progress prominently reported and goodwill valued in nightly news and stock markets
6 Social business infrastructure celebrations modeled round cox's bazaar as superport for Bangladesh and neighbouring nations
7 The Yunus creative lab fund for replicating community solutions of youth and yunus through youth lads that maximise open source trades and minimise middle men
8 Green energy model for a billion off grid peoples
9 How the sustainability curriculum and analyses of social MBA is opposite in every way to MBA curriculum designed by too big to exist banks
10 The Yunus Global Village App laureates -ideal firsts co-sponsor George Soros 20 years after funding GrameenPhone
...Y is for Yunus: Dr Muhammad Yunus. Millennials see him as connecting the 1000 most exciting concepts of their generation. This is fitting as Yunus has been exploring banking's end poverty and community generation purpose longer than anyone. His joy in hi-trust reasoning matches:the exponential impact goals of history's most validated microeconomists and mediators:
keynes: unless economiosts make their job numer 1 emding poverty they compoiund youth's greatest systemic risks.
james wilson the scot who came down to london in 1842 to rid parliament of vested interest politicians and founded The Economist as a social action - mediating what 99% of people wanted bigest decision-makers of the industrial revolution to choose as purpose of each market sector they designed productive and demanding value exchanges around
In a world where over a trillion dollars is now spent in rehearsing non-sustainable advertising concepts of the world's biggest and most extractive organisations, its fitting that Y is mediating youth's most exciting futures....
Part 2 - by uk law, the addresses of all shareholders of a corporation have to be supplied on request by any citizen at cost. I aim to survey which of The Economist's owners want to join in crowdfunding the inaugural annual of world record job creators in time for The Economist's 175th anniversary in 2018. If Yunus is interested in collaboratively partnering around this, please work out where he would find it most convenient for me to meet him ideally before August 1 as I have summer commitments to my daughter during August
Part 3 is to send similar part 1 to 10 other world record job creating connectors
earlier diary exchanges between several youth capitals correpondents
I realise july may be a hard month for anna as peak admin work of the year at uni of san diego and naila as peak fasting month of the year however it is the one traveling month I am free from responsibilities to my daughter
I also gathered from taddy that he feels that due to marriage etc of matt flannery it will be 2+ months before he able to help with arrange a san francisco meet up
My questions: would it still be useful arranging one meet of naila, anna and me in eg san diego in july
or is there a way that naila could see if laura turner might want to meet in atlanta- several subjects worth rehearsing with her are as follows:
does Laura want to connect with naila's womens empowerment movement in NY 2 days before the atlanta rehearsal and 3 days before WSIE in nnew york
does she want to take a meta-connecting role on green energy (her number 1 personal foundation's role)- not only does naila have congruent wishes from eg the sainsbury's but yunus knowhow on solar came originally from Jimmy Carter's energy champion neville williams
there are also at least 2 very delicate issues of nobel summit laura turner might want to be aware of in case she wanted to sustain dynamics of it that yunus men look unable to do
first it appears that gorbachev will not again be well enough to attend this summit- which he co-founded as was eat of europe's main freedom of youth connector; gorbachev's other main networks open society have been co-founded with george soros; for some reason the leadership of nobel summit never seems to invite soros to play a lead role- this is a pity as it not only misses the east europe energies of gorbachev and walesa ever more vital as the EU fails to represent countries/youth at its extremities; but 2 soros wants to sponsor moocs of womens and youth economics; 3 it was soros who first funded grameen phone anyway
second cape town october summit has now become a black hole in every way that it had been announced as a perfect connector between warsaw and atlanta
because south africa fears china and wont give the dalai lama a visa, mandela's main living friend: bishop tutu is withdrawing so are the main womens cluster of laureates
it therefore makes it unlikely that cape town will do anything much to celebrate mandela's action legacy with worldwide youth; so missing connections too with atlantas opening of the rights museum and spirit of luther king family; moreover the historically black university colleges which to summer 2013 were the soul of yunus entrepreneur competitions now have 2 rival coordinators- bhuiyan and thurgood marshall who took over the network which bhuiyan had worked for at annual Atlanta summits since 2000 to stage hbu student entrepreneur conferences
It seems to me in "direct account mode ,ie the turner family unfoundation-atlanta have most of all invested in connections" that all of this information is urgent for ted turner's daughter to know about, and probably some of it she has not been informed about in ways that her family can optimise their own decision-making
Of course I apologise if I have made any reporting errors but do feel that the two of you (Naila, Anna) know more what to do with all this information than anyone else especially as after black communities, hispanic womens networks are the second network us needs to linkin to end poverty in americas (and neither of the 2 mexican yunus summits in september or november seem likely to be valuing youth, nanocredit or the original bangladeshi microfranchise knowhow)
The split with dalai lama is also particularly sad as there is a huge overlap between dalai lama and taddys main way "maharishi" of helping girls who have been abused to refind love of self - maybe laura turner does urgently need the right sort of introduction to taddy. Moreover Branson only found taddy as partner due to his accidental discovery of Sara Blakely in an apprentice reality tv show that Sara won fiorst social prize of. Sara has since gone on to be Atlanta youngest female billionnaire and one seeking how to give back to womens issues
Also having found the world banks young professional associate who grew up in atlanta it is quite sad not to have even one hi-trust link for her to help stage with the next round of the woprld bank youth summit october 6. Currently Jim KIm's main summit moderator is the female sierra leone cnn journalist Isha Sesay -another potential missing link

2014 20th Year KNOWHOW UPDATE
1.1 Eat up everything that you can find on what the founder said and did about the purpose (of an emerging system). View the system in terms of integratining productive and demanding relationships
--- some interesting notes at founding stage:
1.1.1 who were the first 3 people around the founder to build the purpose ( 3 is a minimum system to value through time in that with 2 people- one will power pver the other whereas with 3 the other tow have the possibility to help the most powerful one innovate)
1.1.2 at what stage (2nd person, 3rd person, 4th person ...) was finace for major scaling up introduced- and did the purpose stay the same or shift at this stage - if so eat up everytning you can about this purpose
1.2 When studying one of today's biggest system pursposes- go back to the beginning and make a rough diagram of periods when it exponentially sustained growth or decline; in parallel plot any occasions when purpose of system shifted - again eat up everything said or done around the shift in purpose - try and analyse was the purpose chaged reactively to some conflict in the environment or proactively to npositively value something that was starting a social or cultural revolution - in such a way that the whole meaning/piurspoe of the market sector itself would appriach a tipping point
We called this approach valuing essence within a charter of brand leadership when designed into a learning organisation that was communally proud and individually passionate about its unique purpose. Two networks of people heleped adcvance this research most at the start of the 1990s.

Dad (Norman Macrae) created the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution to debate how to make the net generation the most productive and collaborative . We had first participated in computer assisted learning experiments in 1972.
