#1 NGO in the world. Empowering people to end poverty. Present across 11 countries and touching millions of lives.
BRAC is a global leader in developing and implementing cost-effective, evidence-based programs to assist the most marginalized people in extremely poor, conflict-prone, and post-disaster settings. These include initiatives in education, healthcare, microfinance, women’s and girls’ empowerment, agriculture, human and legal rights, and more. BRAC touches the lives of 120 million people in 11 countries, with a total global expenditure of more than $1 billion. More than 75 percent of its budget in Bangladesh is self-financed through its own activity, including social enterprises and microfinance. However, much of BRAC’s most important work—including its schools, healthcare, ultra-poor graduation program, and most of its programs outside Bangladesh—remains reliant on outside donors.
