BRAC’s work focuses on the key interventions that help communities create pathways out of the deepest forms of poverty.

Founded in the 1970s with a focus on Bangladesh, BRAC is now the largest non-governmental development organisation in the world – operating on a global scale to build a world free from exploitation, discrimination, and inequality.
In 2002, BRAC created ‘The Graduation Approach’ after realising its programmes weren’t adequately reaching those left furthest behind. The approach is a multifaceted set of interventions, designed to address the complex nature of extreme poverty.
