Dear Eric ( and Rabin, Pradeep, Sam, Michael, Joseph, Ayman etc )

Thank you !

I would like to suggest we pool our considerable energies, experiences and skills and act strongly now to support the UN education goals of primary and secondary education for ALL, and the Jeffrey Sachs book of ending poverty in our lifetime , with a big focus on education in that solution. With your experience in Complitkenya and more, and mine in IBM, Oracle, Computer Associates and more,  I believe we are in a good position.

Lets set up a remote management operation to manage cafes, schools and libraries offering internet access for education, starting with your Risa school. I propose operations centres in Bangalore, Derby, Vienna and Houston, which support National Centres ie in  Cairo, Kampala and Mombassa. These national centres then have regional centres, down to nodes like Risa. With a clear and solid network infrastructure in place, ( my suggestion is under Vassil, Soul and Rob ) I believe we can then build and manage an infrastructure for learning, meaning we can open Risa 7×24 for

  • school use
  • adult learning use ( on the membership basis I mentioned )
  •  a library function

I propose that I chat with Soul, Rob and Vassil on the requirements for the NOC, and then approach Ashok for advice on hardware and software and perhaps locations ie Bangalore.

I am hoping that Bill will offer senior project management input to this too

ps as mentioned, if there is a clear, robust, scaleable, localised membership model, enabling a handup and not a hand out, with recognised paid roles and a careeer path for interns into paid roles, i see no challenge in scaling this to 150 mill nodes of 500 members, a total of 5bn learners with a learning plan, a learning mentor, and affordable lifelong lifewide blended learning !

exciting opportunity to start the new year. happy happy happy 2017 , nigel
