Spreading proven anti-poverty solutions born in Bangladesh to countries around the world
BRAC is a Southern-led international development organisation dedicated to alleviating poverty by empowering poor people, especially women, to realise their potential and bring about lasting change in their own lives.
BRAC is a development success story, spreading solutions to poverty born in Bangladesh to 10 other developing countries in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean, making it a global leader in providing opportunities for the World’s poor. With a holistic approach that uses a wide array of tools including microfinance, education, healthcare, legal services and more, BRAC invests in communities’ own human and material resources, catalysing lasting change and creating an ecosystem in which the poor have the chance to seize control of their own lives.
In the UK, BRAC is breaking new ground in south-led development co-operation, establishing strong partnerships with local and global NGOs, donor agencies, academic and research institutions and governments. Our aim is to share BRAC’s success, and mobilise and manage resources so that BRAC’s innovative, community-based approaches can reach more people in poverty in Africa and Asia.
