Thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit this school. We are pleased to see the children learning with delight.
BRAC is offering amazing service, responding to a much-needed area of health. It has been a privilege to see such an efficient and well-run centre and to meet the incredibly gifted staff and volunteers that work here.
I was so happy to see a group of first-time mothers learning about care for their new babies, including exclusive breastfeeding. A woman in labour was successfully referred to a hospital. The vast pyramid structure ensures maternal health care, ensures coverage of the settlement. I commend this project!
Thank you so much for the remarkable work you do providing women with education & health services. I am amazed and grateful!
What an amazing center! Attending to the health of pregnant women and the children they give birth to is a powerful contribution to the development of families and communities. Thank you for all your efforts!
Thank you for the warm welcome. You are doing very important work!
The clinic is clean and the paramedics & doctors are providing service to the pregnant women, adolescents & other services required by the clients. The standard of services is good but can be improved. Some guidelines related to ANC services & materials for clients can be available. No nutrition-related materials are also not available. The clinic can take initiative to collect/print materials for use at the clinics for clients. I wish them best of luck for their future adventures
The image of the school and the glow in the eyes of the children stuck with me.

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.
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.
