What we do


BRAC is an international development organisation dedicated to empowering people in poverty to realise their potential and bring about positive change. In four decades since its inception as a small relief project in a remote corner of Bangladesh, it has grown to become one of the largest and most successful grassroots organisations in the world. Still primarily located in Bangladesh, BRAC now works in 11 additional countries in Africa and Asia. There is no single cause of poverty; hence BRAC tackles it on multiple fronts through a comprehensive approach, organising people, especially women, and providing the platforms and services they need to thrive.
