BRAC is the largest non-governmental development organisation in the world, measured by the number of employees and the number of people it has helped. BRAC’s Vision is a world free from all forms of exploitation and discrimination where everyone has the opportunity to realize their potential. In order for the poor to come out of poverty, they must have the tools to fight it across all fronts. BRAC has, therefore, developed support services in the areas of human rights and social empowerment, education and health, economic empowerment and enterprise development, livelihood training, environmental sustainability and disaster preparedness. BRAC operates social enterprises that are strategically connected to its development programs, and that form crucial value chain linkages to increase the productivity of its members’ assets and labor, and reduce risks of their enterprises. These enterprises, ranging from agriculture to handicrafts, also help to make BRAC increasingly self-reliant.
