what did clinto foundations spin from 2005

clinton Foundation History -pr the way clintons tell it

-related story what happened to microcreditsummit from 1997 as credentialised by hilary clinton , queen sofia of spain and partly uk prince charles- for 15 years clinton and queen sofia were mcs vips - charles prefaced yunu book banker for poor and initially modelled his green awards network ashden on yuns storytelling
When President Clinton left the White House in 2001, he knew he wanted to spend his life as a private citizen working in the areas he cared about most and where he could make a measurable difference. His vision: a nongovernmental organization that could leverage the unique capacities of governments, partner organizations, and other individuals to address rising inequalities and deliver tangible results that improve people’s lives. 
At the International AIDS Conference in 2002, the prime minister of St. Kitts and Nevis asked President Clinton to help build a health care system that would address the pressing HIV/AIDS pandemic. At the urging of Nelson Mandela, he began the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative, which is now named the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) to improve global access to care and treatment.
During the same time CHAI began its work, President Clinton established his post-presidential office in the iconic neighborhood of Harlem in New York City, where he saw a great opportunity for his Foundation to help empower local small business owners.
Over the next decade, the Foundation continued to expand its reach and impact, building on past successes and applying the same business-oriented approach to tackle other pressing challenges. While some initiatives blossomed from President Clinton’s commitment to specific issues — like climate change through the Clinton Climate Initiative — others were inspired by life-changing events.
In 2005, after President Clinton underwent heart-bypass surgery, the Foundation joined with the American Heart Association to form the Alliance for a Healthier Generation with the goal of ending the childhood obesity epidemic in the United States.
Based on a proven record of results, two other initiatives — the Clinton Development Initiative and the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership — were launched in conjunction with partners who knew the Foundation could effectively allocate financial resources and implement programs to catalyze sustainable growth in Africa and Latin America.
After a lifetime of attending meetings where issues were discussed but no action was taken, the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) began in September 2005 to convene world leaders, forward-looking CEOs, and philanthropists to commit to take action on pressing global challenges. Members of the CGI community have made more than 3,600 commitments, which have improved the lives of over 435 million people in more than 180 countries.
In 2010, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI)(link is external) became a separate nonprofit organization. Though the organization initially focused on increasing access to HIV/AIDS treatment, CHAI has expanded its work to increase access to treatments for malaria, diarrhea, tuberculosis; increase the efficiency and effectiveness of health care systems; accelerate the rollout of new vaccines; and improve maternal, newborn, and child health.
In 2012, building on the Foundation’s work of improving global health and fighting childhood obesity, the Foundation launched the Clinton Health Matters Initiative to improve the health and well-being of people across the United States. By developing and implementing a variety of evidence-based individual systems, and investment strategies, the initiative works to promote healthy lifestyles across all generations and reduce health disparities among communities.
Building on President Clinton’s longstanding commitment to Haiti from during his presidency, the Foundation has been actively engaged in Haiti since 2009. Following the 2010 devastating earthquake in Haiti, the Clinton Foundation deployed resources to help with immediate and long-term relief and assistance. And at the request of President Obama, President Clinton joined with President George W. Bush to establish the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, which supported highly effective organizations on the ground in long-term rebuilding efforts. In 2011, the Clinton Foundation refocused its efforts in Haiti from emergency relief to long-term development and strategic planning, and today puts emphasis on private sector investment, job creation, capacity building, and economic development.
In addition to these initiatives, the Clinton Presidential Center, in Little Rock, Arkansas, supports the mission of the Foundation. The Center is also home to the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service, the first school in the nation to offer a master’s degree in public service. Both the Center and the School are inspiring others to follow in the Clintons’ legacy of service.
In 2013, the Foundation was renamed the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation in recognition of Secretary Clinton’s and Chelsea’s contributions and to acknowledge their role in shaping the Foundation.
What began as a vision to lower the prices of HIV/AIDS medicines has evolved into one of the fastest-growing NGOs in the world. The Clinton Foundation wasn’t built overnight, and our successes aren't the result of the Clintons' work alone. The Foundation creates partnerships of great purpose to deliver sustainable solutions that last and transforms communities from what they are to what they can be.

how wow value chains transformed round POP -preferential option poor

mobile apps leapfrog:
cashless banking except last mile -eg mpesa, bkash
micro solar for billion off grid
give directly - Avoids middle men of aid where porest community knows how to spend donation

healthcare - gamechangers were last mile service not expensive exoertise is critical - eg oral rehydration, mdr tuberculosis, preventing infectious disease

bangladesh seeds -higher ratio of live seeds
poultry - innovation of hen tat laid more eggs
bangladesh dairy - timing when to enter powdered milk after eu milk mountains had ended

Tour 1 Oman DC (5 billion elearning satellite) Rome(POP) Haiti Rwanda Peru
Tour 2 Bangladesh Kenya (Joyful Women, Ushahidi) South Africa (Mandela Extranet), Lucknow
Tour 3 Boston Japan Budapest Russia West Africa

How to celebrate DC as biggest millennials change alumni capital since summer 2012

first clarify that all POP movements of health and origin of Bangla microcredit banking share 3 core dynamics:
1 celebrate living with the poor
2 time every microfranchise - so local poorest gain from open sourcing global solution to sustainability 
3 know when its impossible to network village banking for the poor without first building hi-trust health webs

.Published on Mar 27, 2015 20 years after mobilising first partnerships with poorest village mothers, three cheers out of Bangladesh, Kenya and this month UN.Is this the most exciting moores law of the web and impact investing? Will it POP as a number 1 job creation curriculum on the 5 billion person elearning satellite and other open learning campus of sustainable millennials?
this clarification will be difficult in DC because microcreditsummit 1997 onwards failed to provude open learning curricula of how Bangladeshi microcredit 1.0 from 1972 and 2.1 from 1996 evolved-in consequence it became a fund raisers jamboree not an open source solutions movement of the sort #2030now and sustainable millennials need
DC biggest millennials change alumni capital of last 3 years

connecting through women4empowerment
connecting through 5 billion person elearning satellite -ownership motivated by diaspora values of Ethiopians- largest DC diaspora
Jim Kim (Youth) World Bank DC -alumni web ? sharing prosperity Q to Impacts of greatest public health servants

with jim kim's arrival valuer of milllennials as most connected educated class our human race has ever enjoyed chnace to celebrate and invest in - demonstrated in kims practice case with health millennials and with transformational world bank processes including tedx, youth summit, regional youth societies, open elarning campus, collaboration from, world bank live events with pro-youth leaders - KIng relies on south american pro-millennials leaders within world bank such as
reform macroeconomics Mexican Giugale (tools include cash transfer - 20 year learning curve in mexico now massively replicated by workd bank in tanzania)
reform global social value argentinian Roby S
reform public service accountability Marcelo
Reform Schooling Brazilian Claudio
Reform Public Servant Accountability 
Prior to World Bank Kim's 25 years with partners in health (PIH) out of boston involved Americas primary PIH partnership of Paul Farmer inHaiti and Kim's own work in Peru- in terms of greatest moment in Kim's PIH life linking in with investments of Keynsian economist George Soros- pih work on ending multi drug resistant outbreaks of TB was exported through Soros Open Society to Russian prisons
Noah  cc Naila, Luis, John- you were too kind giving me 90 minutes of your time yesterday-  This is just my crazy concept - of course all follies are mine not the people mentioned
Dont stop route a of trying to change/upgrade entire education systems with 5 billion person elearning satellite YAZMI
But design plan b as a win-win
Plan b 
b1 find say 10 nation-leading people to believe in as much as say Rachel Ruto - have on YAZMI what they want communicated about their empowerment solutions in under 60 seconds - it may be a short video, it may just be a few pictures, But they know their story in way that it could turn on  attention of any sustainable millennials world leaders or womens empowerment network in 60 seconds
the goal should be to have some of these top 10  (60 second) stories both beaming live and on demo by 3rd week september - that way the receiver can be left with first ladies during un week and with those who celebrate preferential option poor as Pope Francis speaks to congress (in other words every future friend of jim kim and paul farmer, and armen/kagame in rwanda, and george soros in west africa, and ...)
b2 seek out sponsoring partners at 5 million dollar level of realising  each of the top 10  Rachel Rutos first leap forward with yazmi- this should emerge from eg brainstorming of the rachel ruto, you/naila and the potential sponsors- in some cases this first experiment will involve buying 50000 receivers in other cases Yazmi with eg womens 4 empowerment and a local tech group will be mainly consulting to link the best of both worlds
(With parts of unis like stanford going free on-demand this week, i believe sustainable future players of open learning  (which may or may not include khan academy) already make 5 million dollars the absolute minimum pilot project wherever something is requiring new to them work and given some corporates spend a billion dollars a year on advertising 5 million dollars is absolute mini,um to get global ceos spending any of their time on it)
the strategy must be joyful confidence that some of the 5 million dollars pilots will graduate to 50 million dollar partnership clusters- for example if you are bringing the whole of kenya development world into millennials elearning satellite age why woundnt obama post 2016 want to be involved as well as Kim (if is 5 year term is not renewed summer 2017)- of course this all depends on rachel as your first www ambassador out of kenya because your network is serving what she needs to linkin; equally some of these 50 million dollar syndicates may become part owners or open society policy council for the association of how elearning satellite changes human sustainability just in time
if that sounds crazy I know that eg toyota's past president sons wants tokyo university to be asia's boston - first it wants its world class medical students and technologists to be an integral branch of partners in health; second it wants open technologists to believe as much as my father did that japan still has much to share with the whole of the east's century of millennial development; 3rd through abul latif and they can literally choose on any mit partner- right now the head of media lab at mit is japanese joi ito (as I think you know media lab was mit's vision of what architecture should do in 21st century as well as what negropronte dreams of) OMAGINE You mentioned dream offices for yazmi as learnings future- the video on this webpage shows a 12 year debate that Oman finally commissioned last year its connected with some of  toyota's summit prodcers too, and a friend of mine in London who first wanted to apply his civil engineering business to this vision of middle east joy in the world
Naila knows whose story and trust can be won by september in much more human detail than I do. I would hope that we could add in some of Blecher's Partners in Mandela Extranet, Partners in health, BRAC (which this week opened up an outpost in Berkeley) and Tokyo/Abdul Latif/Dubai Legatum but we need to go from win to win depending who brings their huge energies to trusting YAZMI . I have already sent shefali a first version of lets make sure we include USHAHIDI because its  movement is as big as rachel ruto -kenya depends on the two linking in this year and not being sidetracked by obama jamboree- and I guess that if taddy's mandela extranet trusted us he would say his dream first 5 million dollar project would be join joburg and nairobi's ihub at the hip so that all of kenya, yazmi and south africas 7th graders creating next million jobs can learn from each other
consultancy of what would the world miss- profile by each partner if you didnt exist
in 1994 the economist intelligence unit and I wrote a book on this; its possible to take the question to any ad agency and ask them to play it with the client that can most sustain the future; and ask them how different would their play be if they were also trusted by the leaders of 5 billion person elearning satellite- I still want to get the curriculum of what would the world miss back into The Economist by 2018 its 175th anniversary- lord sainsbury's daughter with naila can influence the new female editor of The Economist to learn about empowerment
60 seconds on USHAIDI
Ushahidi started as an ad-hoc group of Kenyan bloggers hammering out code in a couple of days from various locations, trying to figure out a way to gather more and better information about the 2008 post-election violence in Kenya.
Ushahidi is a non-profit technology company that builds open source platforms to help citizens, journalists, organizations, governments, and others gather, manage, analyze, and visualize crowdsourced data. Our tools have been used by tens of thousands of individuals and organizations fighting for social causes in over 159 countries — whether for monitoring corruption in Zimbabwe, gathering real-time data on local poverty issues, or giving people a voice in the Syrian crisis.  Everyone at Ushahidi comes to work here because we know that every day people around the world use the tools we build to improve the lives of millions. In other words, in the fight for a better world, we aren’t 007, we’re Q. Our team tends to think big and rewards creativity and an entrepreneurial attitude. Over the past six years, we have also built the iHub – the tech community hub in Nairobi, the BRCK – a redesign of connectivity for the developing world, and other projects like Savannah Fund, AfriLabs, and Crisis Mappers. Our ethos – we don’t just build products, we solve problems.

cirtizen engagement (CE) first mooc course to reach 100 million people?

so why shouldnt every millennial be joyfully engaged in citizen engagement (CE) or POP or any of the job creation (poverty-ending sustainability) games of #2030now (more joy at sorosjobs and jimkiminfo )

 Why not celebrate this as one of the questions that the world bank's open learning campus relaunched today could be asking- which of the 10 conversation subnetworks going on across the World Bank compass of CE-MOOC may yet plant the seeds of citizen engagement being the first MOOC to viralise social actions across 100 million millennials NB the world bank promises to keep alumni open for a year but you may need to register before mid april to be in the world first mooc cleass of open engagement
