BRAC’s community empowerment programme believes in the need to build and strengthen community institutions and ensure stronger accountability of the local government towards the poor, especially women, in terms of their socio-political empowerment. This involves their capacity building, motivating them to raise their voice and take collective action. It strengthens the local government for poverty reduction initiatives, creates awareness and access to information, and prevents violence, particularly against women.
