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.

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.

The two-storey structure, made mainly of bamboo and other natural ingredients, stands two feet above ground, which means rainwater won’t stand. The architecture follows indigenous Rohingya building traditions, allowing better resilience to extreme weather, ventilation and best utilisation of space. From yesterday (Wednesday) 240 Rohingya children are taking lessons in this centre.
