  3. 3. • Established by Sir Fazle Hasan Abed in 1972 soon after the independence of Bangladesh. • Its Headquarter is in DHAKA, • BANGLADESH. • BRAC is present in all 64 districts of Bangladesh as well as in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Haiti and The Philippines
  4. 4. • BRAC employs over 100,000 people, roughly 70 percent of whom are women, reaching more than 126 million people.

BRAC maintains offices in 14 countries throughout the world, including BRAC USA and BRAC UK
  5. 5. What is unique about BRAC? • It is , its method of pulling people out of poverty. As one author has said, “BRAC’s idea was simple yet radical: bring together the poorest people in the poorest countries and teach them to read, think for themselves, pool their resources, and start their own businesses”. This is exactly what BRAC has done and is still doing in Bangladesh and ten other poverty- stricken countries around the world
  6. 6. • BRAC has organized the isolated poor and learned to understand their needs by finding practical ways to increase their access to resources, support their entrepreneurship and empower them to become agents of change. Women and girls have been the focus of BRAC’s anti-poverty approach; BRAC recognizes both their vulnerabilities and thirst for change

Our interventions aim to achieve large scale, positive changes through economic and social programmes that enable men and women to realize their potential.”

BRAC has reached out to those who, due to extreme poverty, cannot access microfinance. BRAC defines such people suffering from extreme poverty as the 'ultra poor', and has designed a programme customized for this group that combines subsidy with enterprise development training, healthcare, social development and asset transfer, eventually pulling the ultra poor into its mainstream microfinance programme.

BRAC also has a number of commercial programmes that contribute to the sustainability of BRAC’s development programmes since returns from the commercial programmes are channeled back into BRAC’s development activities.
