Visit BRAC

BRAC welcomes visitors from around the world to experience firsthand its wide range of actions and innovations that continues to improve the condition of the marginalised people. BRAC’s visitors unit is dedicated to support the national & international government officials, donor agencies, prospective partners, academia and individual practitioners in facilitating their visit. The unit aims to provide ample opportunity to observe BRAC’s micro level field activities as well as share views and thoughts with BRAC practitioners. Visiting experiences are customised according to the visitors’ interest and field of work to ensure the highest convenience in learning.

 

Schedule your Visit

If you are planning to visit BRAC, the first step is to send us a completed Checklist Form. You can download the form here. Based on your given information and your fields of interest, we will provide you with tentative itineraries of the visit by coordinating with the respective programmes, as well as an approximate budget. We also provide support in reservation of accommodation, transportation, and logistics. Here is a general template of the visit procedure:

Things to keep in mind when making arrangements and filling out profile and logistics forms: 

  • Please make sure you plan your visit between Sunday through Thursday since Friday and Saturday are weekends in Bangladesh. We recommend that you plan your arrival on the weekend if you would like to start a visit at the beginning of the week.
  • Field visits start early in the morning (6:30am-7:30am) since locations usually tend to be far away, and the heavy traffic can be avoided early in the day.
  • If you are able to plan in advance, we recommend visiting Bangladesh during the winter, since the weather is pleasant. Summers in Bangladesh are hot and humid which can take a toll  during extensive field visits.


Here are some sample itineraries for visitors:
1 day urban programme schedule
2 days trip from Dhaka
3 days BLC based programme
5 days immersion for microfinance programme

The following sample itineraries give an idea of what a general BRAC visit covers.

Financials and External Audit

BRAC's finance and accounts department is responsible for financial planning and record-keeping, managing costs, assets and liabilities, financing investments, analysing cash-flow and profitability, and preparing budgets and financial frameworks for the development programmes. The department is accountable for donor grants, property, provident funds, employee gratuity, salary, tax and loans. It produces annual and monthly consolidated financial statements and fulfils the rules and regulations of the NGO Affairs Bureau, Microcredit Regulatory Authority (MRA) and other regulatory bodies. Through this department we ensure effective financial control and transparency of the financial data of our projects and enterprises, garnering the trust and confidence from all those with whom we work.


BRAC was awarded the ‘AAA’ by Credit Rating Agency of Bangladesh Ltd. (CRAB). (The ‘AAA’ means Extremely Strong Capacity and Highest Quality.) BRAC has been receiving ‘AAA’ rating consecutively for the last five years.

Rating Reports

 

Traditional hospital-based services are not able to reach some of the world’s poorest and most remote villages. Over one billion people globally, including 400 million Africans, lack access to health services because they live too far from a health facility. Rural communities know that if a child becomes ill, the long walk for treatment could potentially turn a minor ailment into a serious health problem.

As the World Education Forum meets in Incheon, South Korea, it is time to confront some unsettling facts about the state of education in the world today. More than 91 per cent of children of primary school age are now enrolled in school, but progress on educating the remaining 9 per cent has slowed to a near standstill. The numbers have barely moved since 2005, and girls are still disproportionately left behind.

This month, the results from six randomised control trials (RCTs), published in Science magazine highlighted a model of development that is an adaptable and exportable solution able to raise households from the worst forms of destitution and put them onto a pathway of self-reliance. The graduation approach – financial services integrated within a broader set of wrap-around services – is gaining steady recognition for its astonishing ability to transform the lives of the poorest.

Innovation is part of the BRAC DNA.  From oral rehydration therapy to one-room schools, we are constantly looking for ways to push past the conventional wisdom of what is possible.

The introduction and rapid growth of mobile money in Bangladesh has created opportunities for new solutions to poverty.  Last year, with the support of the Gates Foundation, BRAC implemented several pilots incorporating mobile money as part of their design.
