Who we are

BRAC is an international development organisation founded in Bangladesh in 1972 that partners with over 100 million people living with inequality and poverty to create opportunities to realise human potential.

We are known for our community-led, holistic approach and delivering long-term impact at scale. We work with communities in marginalised situations, hard-to-reach areas and post-disaster settings across Asia and Africa, with a particular focus on women and children.

We operate as a solutions ecosystem, including social development programmes, social enterprises, humanitarian response, a bank and a university.

We are born and proven in the south, have become a world leader in developing and implementing cost-effective, evidence-based programmes, and have been recognised as the number one development organisation in the world for multiple consecutive years by Geneva-based independent media organisation, NGO Advisor.
