Non-governmental Organization based in Bangladesh

BRAC is a development organisation dedicated to alleviate poverty by empowering the poor, and helping them to bring about positive changes in their lives by creating opportunities for the poor.

Our journey began in 1972 in the newly sovereign Bangladesh, and over the course of our evolution, we have been playing a role of recognising and tackling the many different realities of poverty. We believe that there is no single cause of poverty; hence we attempt tackling poverty on multiple fronts.

One of the biggest biometric verification processes ever undertaken has confirmed that Uganda is hosting 1.1 million refugees, by far the largest number in Africa and the third largest worldwide. With the scale of the crisis now confirmed, the international community should ensure the response is appropriately funded. As the end of the year approaches, the 2018 response plan has received just 42% of the required funds.

BRAC has been implementing a holistic, multi-sector response since the latest influx began in August 2017, in close coordination with the Government and different humanitarian partners through the Inter Sector Coordination Group. We have been working with the host communities in Cox’s Bazar for the last 35 years and specifically with the Rohingya population from previous influxes since December 2016. We are pursuing an adaptive, phase-wise strategy that sequences our interventions to provide integrated services to everyone (Rohingya and host communities) affected by the crisis.
