50 years of igniting hope
This year marks the 50th anniversary of BRAC’s founding in Bangladesh in the wake of a civil war that secured the nation’s independence and a devastating cyclone that left it paralyzed. From those humble beginnings, BRAC has evolved to become the world’s largest Southern-based international development organization. At every step, our supporters helped us build BRAC, proving that if we work together, there is always a way.
A Special Message
Gordon Brown, Fomer UK Prime Minister, UN Envoy for Global Education
"Sir Fazle Abed was one of the world’s most amazing human beings and defender of the poor. He was an inspiration to so many - and his message of hope resonates now more than ever. He showed us all that human kindness and love can overcome great challenges. BRAC is a reflection of this message and has grown into an amazing institution.”
