more on BRAC Partners

We  rely on a vast array of partners in our mission to serve the poorest  communities around the world. It is important for us to look beyond our  present role of mere service providers and invest in building a  broad-based coalition of rights-based development partners capable of  fighting the policies that drive neo-liberal urbanism, and pressing for  collective bargaining rights of the poor and marginalized. By working in  partnership, we improve our efficiency and effectiveness, and increase  our impact on poverty. We collaborate with government agencies and other  humanitarian organizations operating on the local, national and  international level, who provide us with cash and in-kind donations,  expertise, shared resources and other forms of support. All of these  programs reflect the strengths and determination of BRAC, its employees,  partners and supporters who, working hand in hand with the citizens of  Bangladesh have demonstrated the power of ideas and local action.

Financial Information


BRAC uses every dollar efficiently

A naturally thrifty organisation, we keep our overhead low - always less than 7 percent - to make more money available for our programmes. With modestly-compensated staff members, who live in simple accommodations close to the people they serve, BRAC uses every dollar efficiently. When we enter a community, we do so with the idea of assisting the largest  number of people possible, with the support and services they need most. Having honed our skills over three decades, we know how to start small and how to rapidly scale up effective, anti-poverty efforts. The growth of BRAC in Bangladesh over the past three decades is reflected in our solid financial performance. Our annual programme expenditures in 1980 were USD $780,000, which grew to USD $485 million in 2007. Underlying this staggering growth is our transformation from a small, local development organisation to a global movement fighting to end poverty.

Our Tax ID in the USA is: 20-8456741.

Our UK Registered Charity Number: 1115482

 

Financing BRAC International Programmes


Internationally, BRAC has built a solid financial base in Bangladesh, growing from a tiny start-up into the largest development organisation in the country. In 1980, programmes in Bangladesh were funded exclusively with donor money. However, over the years we have steadily reduced our dependence on donor contributions through growing microfinance, and developing social enterprises that have not only created employment for many poor people, but have also enabled us to generate income for our programmes. Similarly, when we first launched programmes in Afghanistan in 2002, we again found ourselves in a start-up mode, self-financing our budget in the first year. As we began to demonstrate success, we received donor funds to scale-up our programmes. As in Bangladesh, we have begun building a path to financial self-sustainability and as of 2007, 40% of annual expenditures were self-financed.

Financing BRAC Programmes in Africa


2006 marked the start of our programmes in Africa. In extending our reach to Africa, we must rely on private donors as donor countries make grants in Africa directly to national governments, rather than to organisations on the ground. Given that we are unable to access government grants on the scale needed for our programmes in Africa, we need sustained philanthropic support to continue expanding and launching new programmes, while we work toward financial self sustainability in every country where we operate.

BRAC won the CGAP Financial Transparency Award in 2005 & 2006


BRAC’s commitment to accountability and transparency has been recognised by CGAP, an independent policy and research centre dedicated to advancing financial access for the world’s poor.

Happy 80th birthday by 100000 people of  BRAC to Sir Fazle Abed

 1 RESILIENCE NOT JUST RELIEF –INNOVATION’s CORE OF BOTTOM-UP DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICS

The seeds of BRAC were planted in the efforts of Sir Fazle and friends to assist families affected by the Bhola cyclone in 1970. BRAC was then officially established after independence, supporting refugees to rebuild their lives. At a critical early juncture , we abandoned our focus on relief and adopted a longer-term objective of development, opting to work side by side with community members for decades to come.

We do not ignore emergencies and their impact on people living in poverty. We build community preparedness and grassroots platforms that activate in natural disasters to minimize damage and to channel relief. Our goal is to help households bounce back better.

Better often means changes such as stronger infrastructure or new livelihoods for families that depend on agriculture, for example, and are therefore increasingly vulnerable to climate change.

As Bangladesh urbanizes, we have expanded our focus to include manmade disasters like fires and building collapses, most recently Rana Plaza in 2013.

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

We challenged the global health community by putting the life saving treatment for diarrheal disease in the “unqualified” hands of mothers, and generated evidence that they could use it effectively. We created a community-based tuberculosis control model, expanding over time to become the government’s largest partner in combating the disease.

The growing numbers of people living in poverty in urban areas face serious health risks, including maternal and infant mortality. Our network of healthcare entrepreneurs continues to ensure that women can access care safely, quickly, and with dignity.

Recent breakthroughs in cognitive science have shown that focusing on early childhood development has transformative effects over a lifetime. Pilot programmes are putting this research into action at the grassroots level

The primary challenge of healthcare now is less about access and more about quality. We  are building financial tools to continuously ensure more people can access services that meet their evolving health needs.

 

3 EDUCATION FROM LITERACY TO LEADERSHIP

We started by teaching basic literacy to adults, then realised we needed to start from the start.  We changed our nor-formal primary schools as “second chances’ for people living in poverty especially girls. Our pedagogy focused on joyful learning, incorporating the best practices from around the world.

As students graduated from our schools. We felt a need for creative ways to continue learning beyond the classroom. Libraries offered reading materials, and adolescent clubs created safe spaces and opportunities to teach life skills.

Our focus moved towards quality, with universal access towards education in sight, through strategies such as teacher training and increased use of technology. We proactively recruited students with special needs and expanded our curriculum into multiple ethnic languages to ensure that our schools were successful to all children.

Our ultiimate goal is to build a nation, and for that we need leaders. That is where our focus is now – creating opportunities for youth to take responsibilities in programmes, as mentors, and as teachers themselves. Our university creates even more opportunities to contribute on a global scale.

4 Financial Inclusion

We started by bringing people living in poverty together. We quickly learnt that what they needed most urgently was access to economic opportunities and financial services.

We brought women together into village organizations to organize credit and savings arrangements, and then used these meetings as a platform by delivering a wider range of services.

Over time, we expanded our reach to unserved populations, such as the “missing middle” (enterprises that were too large for the loans offered by microfinance but excluded from commercial banks) and a comprehensive grants based programme for people living with poverty, who could not benefit from microfinance.

We are now building a broader set of financial products, including insurance and pensions, and leveraging the growing ownership of mobile phones to use digital channels for financial services.

5 Market Solutions for the Poor

A fundamental driver is a lack of power – at the individual, household and community level alike... Power dynamics need to change in order for people living in poverty to realize their potential , and they only change when people do it themselves.

We promoted consciousness raising and empowerment from our earliest interactions with communities, inspired by teachings on social movements. We underestimated the complexity of power dynamics though and learned the hard way that we needed to create new organisations, where women could come together in solidarity. These community action groups became important social platforms; for example, supporting health workers who faced harassment for their services.

We widened our work over time to help people living in poverty to participate in formal government structures and leverage public services. We also increased our engagement with public official and village leaders to build wider support for women’s empowerment. These discussions have risen to the national level, where we advocate policies that support gender equality and human rights. Internally we have worked to build a female-friendly work environment and actively strive to recruit women.

Gender equality remains one of the greatest unfinished works of our generation, and an area in which we have to continue changing power dynamics. We still see that child marriage is the norm, sexual violence is pervasive, and women are under-represented in the workforce.

 

6 Changing Power Dynamics

As we began to provide financial services to people living in poverty, we noticed that many rural communities did not have access to markets

We started building value chains, connecting thousands of farmers and artisans to national markets. We focused on silk, poultry, clothing and retail, in many cases the viability of new sectors in Bangladesh. The successful scaling up of one value chain often spawned new livelihood opportunities, from poultry vaccinations to artificial insemination for dairy cows.

Entrepreneurship is also a long standing part of our development approach. Over time we have built a national cadre  of local change agents, usually women, who receive training and support from us, but are paid for their services by their neighbours. These grassroots entrepreneurs distribute a wide variety of products and services, from sanitary napkins to high quality seeds.

As local and global labor markets offer new opportunities. We are supporting migrants to seek and finance work abroad safely,  and equip youth with in-demand skills

 

7 BRAC INTERNATIONAL

By 2002 we had over 30 years experience of piloting and perfecting programs, and scaling them to reach millions. The time had come to bring what we had learnt in Bangladesh to the rest of the world.

Relief and rehabilitation were immediate needs after war and natural disasters plunged millions into poverty in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. We focused on peace and building stability through jobs, education and financial inclusion, continuing to put girls and women at the centre of opportunities.

We expanded into Africa four years later, starting development programs in Tanzania and Uganda. We continued to pilot, perfect and scale rapidly never losing focus on contextualising every opportunity created

Opening now in 12 countries gives us a rich knowledge base to further our work in Bangladesh, while providing us with a global network in which to pilot new solutions for the world’s problems. In 2016, we create opportunities for one in every 50 people in the world...

===============================
 CONTEXT FOR 2018 TOUR

NB INDIA BIGGER PEOPLEWISE THAN ALL OF CHINAS OTHER NEIGHBORS

 

Before a tour guide to brac/bangladesh- here’s a brief review of all of China’s neighbors and why the old English Raj is in population terms the biggest of china’s belt road tours and new development searches. Brett’s x times great grand father JAMES WILSON started this tour with Queen Victoria – after founding The Economist to help her debate what was London doing to Ireland (see current pbs episode of Victoria) he was dispatched to Calcutta started standard bank, died 1860 of diarrhea 9 months into the project. His son-in-law Walter Bagehot refocused on English constitution and pound sterling as commonwealth reserve currency with Victoria.

Accidentally the next time The Economist had a sub-editor with east west experience was my dad who waa a teenage navigator over modernday Myanmar in world war2 , who married the daughter of sir Kenneth Kemp whose 25 years as Mumbai chief justice mediating Gandhi ended up writing up legalese of india’s independence; most of dad’s first 20 years  The Economist celebrated the East’s post colonial win-win economies ie japan s korea Chinese diaspora superports (archives) and by 1976 asked americans to celebrate asian pacific china global century as much as their own third century.

At the time of moon landing dad started his other main dialogue of the 20th C  world’s favorite viewspapre  – Entrepreneurial Revolution – assuming the world was in 1968 destined to spend 1000 times more on commons tech in 2016 versus 1946 would we transform education to sustain all millenials livelihoods or the opposite?

 

ANTICLOCKWISE REVIEW OF CHINA’S NEIGHBOURS, STARTING AT ITS EAST COAST:

1 China’s east coast supercity connection are great : every positive win-win trading future can be dreamed with them : the superports and trains are ready to connect more than half the world’s economy which is how sustainability mapmaking should be with half the world’s people living within 3000 miles of Beijing but crowded in to less than 10% of the earth’s land

 

2 china’s border with asean looks pretty good ( asean with singpaore as its cultural soul is in top 6 development miracles with china mainland , china superports diaspora, s korea , japan , Bangladesh girls)

 

3 Now we come to the crucial corridor Myanmar Bangladesh India Pakistan – all old British Raj; what important to bring 2020 vision to first

Bangladesh is a key coastline – if it had a superport that united all trade interest on china India Bangladesh Myanmar that would change more girls lives than any single superport anywhere

The miracles of Bangladesh and mainland china both started at beginning of 1970s. In fact to start with japan shared rice science in a partnership with brac and china that was number 1 solution in ending famine. However china developed with the diaspora (the 3rd greatest financial power by the 1970s) inward investing in superb infrastructure; bangladesh girls had to build their nation with what aid they could turn into sustainable social business (the invention many people believe muhammad yunus designed but actually brac did. See The Economist article it wasn’t microcredit it was BRAC)

4 Next we come to Pakistan corridor to united arab emirates and thence djibouti to Africa, up the suez and through the Mediterranean sea- the brilliant new maritimne silk road

5 As you continue tour of landlocked neighbors, its impossible for china to make anything much better without mediating Russia’s goodwill. Even the ovetland Chinese Express to west Europe passes through the Shanghai Cooperation neighbours of which Russia is a core dynamic , and which India joins for the first time as full member this year (2 incredible summits in june aiib Mumbai and SCO qingdao)

6.1 You then have 4 trajectories through Russia but which you can also call the artic belt road. One is direct trade route to Nordica via st Petersburg which organisies a major annual economic summit- here the articuniversity.com shared by 8 countries and pivoting out of finland is the best news of all new universities of 2018 following damo as best news of 2017

6.2 Direct route to Moscow – essentially what is the strategic future of Russian and East Europe people  the west  (EU) had first chance to mediate if the fall of the berlin wall had been about more than reuniting Germany

6.3 Direct north through mongolia – quite an unpopulated region but potentially renewable as pivotal natural space

6.4 north east where the dream has always been a runnel across Bering Strait so that north east Eurasia Alaska Canada West Coast usa van all be one supertrain corridor as well people spaces that are totally complementary as sustainable economies if 20th c borders hadn’t been erected primarily by stalin

6.5 Of course the last border challenge: as neighbors turn full circle is north korea- here we have 30 million underdeveloped people ; they too need one superport; this solution can really only come about if russia china japan and south jorea start to trust each other

I welcome being told what stories youth should map differently than above; if I have over-simplified or got them wrong please don’t throw out the brac and bangaldesh superport challenge without looking at it in more detail. 
First if you put a straight railway line from Beijing to xi’an to chengdu to the coast you would almost hit the Myanmar-bangladesh border- at cox’s bazzar which yunus and my father discussed as needing to be a superport with 50 people at the royal automobile club london in feb 2008! Second if you did a railway from chengdu to Gwadar you would almost pass through new delhi thus opening up all the route to emirates : Oman , Djibouti and Adrican silk road, suez and med sea silk road. But third if you review every sustainability goal in terms of which communities face the hardest entrepreneurial challenges you would come back to bangaldeshi girls as still being the SDG17 world's most vital youth partners. If climate goes wrong there will be more initial flooding of peoples along bangladesh coastline than anywhere. Brac has designed an economy where communities and girls networks maximizing their own capacities to build the future. This is the story that all of sheihka moza’s wise partmers can honor as brac was their first educational laureate and now that guterres has asked them to stage the girls and refugee learning summits at the UNGA Sept 2018.

 

Key people in choosing what goes on at this summit are thes ame UN eminent sdg goals panel as aiib is reporting on both at aiib Mumbai 2018 and argentina g20 july 2018. All of brac’s organisational dna is francsican (Paulo Freire) as is all of jim kim’s prior work at partners in health with paul farmer amd george soros. You cant do global last mile health services without brac style networking. Fortunatley jim kim’s last job before he joined the world bank was to make pih’s lab in africa in rwanda with kagame who now chairs the african union. .

So it is that goodwill with china’s immediate neigbors connects through to goodwill in middle esst, Africa, med sea nations (the happiest in the old silk road before 1500 but today the refugee and isis crisis hotspots),  and ultimately brac and girls are at the crossro9ads of a muslim francsican coinfucian fusion of families build healthy economies across generations not vice versa 

 

The G7’s win-lose macroeconomics computes big data big; this is not mathematically correct let alone exponentially sustainable if you refer to Einstein and von Neumann., and it will not produce the human ai  (or the truth media) we now despearately need to celebrate if little sister sustainability world is to be the end game instead of orwallian big brother. These are the most excitiing tiness to be alive. What we do with tech of banking and education over the next few years determines species sustainability.

 

TOURING BRAC AS INTEGRAL TO 2018 teachers Game of Fives and World Record Jobs Creators

Publishers of the sino-english world record book of jobs creation demand that any educator responsible for youth future livelihoods understands teachings of these 5 peoples alumni network if they are to help with sustainability rising out of every community

1 Xi Jiping (worldwide sustainability investment maps –both china end poverty 2020, and benchmark ecological cib=vilisation 2050)

2 Sir Fazle Abed (girls futures)

3 Antonio Guterres  (worldwide borders reconciliation, and 17 SDGoald local deadlines )

4 Pope Francis (missing connector of all major goodwill spirits – what jack ma calls curriculum of LoveQ)

5 Jack Ma (tech futures humanized; big data small enough for every child to code –china’s work on robot teaching assistants appear to be where education unicorns are at; remember 2018 is year of 5 million china startups- which of these do 5th grade girls need to know about for sdgoal to be their realities not just dreams 

 

 

In 1972 BRAC began as a training network in an area where 1 million people had be killed by a cyclone and there was no infrastructure left- who could reconstuct what; it was always building community self capacity – home and safety  (to this day brac employs more barefoot lawyers than bangladesh has police stations), local food security, local helath security, a jobs-led education system, and villagers own value chains and finance. starting in villages with no electricity and illiteracy; its first primary schools trained women; who then became teachers. The newly indepenentent national government didnt have enough taxes to develop the cities so it let brac be the public self-service of villages. BRAC is the ultimate Paulo Freire action learning network; it scaled across villages person to person to 1996. Then the parallel network yunus started 11 years after brac was first to test mobile and microsolar connectivity. However at its height yunus only owned one third of grammen phone. Brac maintained total ownership of its digitalization – today it connects the largest cashless banking sstem in the workl www.bkash.com – the coding superstars from this are the same bangladeshi americans who started with yunus but now linking mit dubai legatum and Nick Hughes the original coders of mpesa- bill gates networks comes to brac to study how to try to do cashless banking elsewhere. However in bangladesh bkash connects with every network as does brac education. In africa and afghanistan where one major partner per country asked brac to join in, adolesecent girls clubs are the main hub for educational networking ( only one of 10 main moving parts of brac back in bangladesh). Bangladeshi girls empower a fusion of edutech and fintech in ways that every poorest nation needs to benchmark before its has a chance to get to the superhighways of development that China is. So as in a 2006 bangaldesh dialogue paper put it – three giants need to grow up together China India and Bangladesh if you search to achieve the deepest sustainability goals and not to leave the bottom 20% out of the sustainability goals era.
Since 1999 Brac formed a university - its signature course is the James Grant School for public health servants - the first lesson module brac ever scaled across the village mothers network was oral rehydration which saved a quarter of infants lives; james then head of unicef took to having a pack of the sugar-salt mix in his suit and demonstrating it at every royal dinner table he graced...
EXCITING YOUTH ECONOMIES
Our favorite is the new economy of valuing world's poorest girls-  brac, founder Sir Fazle Abed, is the world's most knowledgable network in empowering girls sustainability- started in bangladesh in 1972 its first 25 years of grassroots networking was entirely face to face as bangladeshi girl villagers had no electricity so no telecoms nor other ways of being connected beyond the village;
leapfrog models - when mobile is your first telecom; when solar is your first elecetricuty ; when cashless is your first bank ...
bangladesh was one of the first nations to test how to use mobile with world poorest womens networks; most leapfrog market models can benchmark an ultra goals version that brac has helped linkin - start with www.bkash.com the developing worlds largest cashless bank using mp3 tech

BRAC PRIMARY SCHOOLS 5.3 million girl alumni of BRAC

A second chance at education 
Over the past 29 years, the number of BPS has grown exponentially. We started working in 1985, opening 22 one-room schools and providing three years of schooling up to class 3, which was later extended to class 5. The main objective of non-formal primary schools is to develop a school model for the underprivileged and primary school dropout children, especially girls, to complete the five-year primary school syllabus in four years.



BRAC also works with other development organisations to expand education opportunities for disadvantaged children by partnering with them and providing them with technical and financial support to implement BRAC’s non-formal primary education model with changes as needed. These collaboration activities are called education support programmes.

Key features

  • The one-teacher school is operated by the same teacher for the same cohort of children for a period of four years and delivers lessons in all subjects
  • The school hours are flexible and fixed according to needs
  • Children do not pay any fees and there are no long holidays
  • Little or no homework as most of their parents are not capable of assisting them
  • Children with special needs receive corrective surgeries along with devices like wheelchairs, hearing aids, glasses and ramps
  • Children belonging to ethnic communities receive class lectures and course materials in their own languages up to class 2 so that they can overcome language barriers and cultural gaps
  • BRAC develops textbooks and other materials for up to class 3 and government textbooks are used in classes 4 and 5
  • Students are taught about social values and their rights and responsibilities coupled with basic financial education to empower them
  • BRAC primary school graduates are being tracked by BRAC for further study

Mechanism to ensure quality of teaching
A typical BRAC teacher is a woman from the community in which the school is, with 10 years of schooling experience. Teachers undergo an initial 12-day training course in order to repeat basic information on teaching and learning and to enhance their teaching abilities. They subsequently participate in monthly, subject-based refresher courses and yearly orientation prior to advancing to the next class. In collaboration with BRAC University’s Centre for Language (CfL), BRAC provides a two-month long (21 days each) teacher training programme in English to the teachers.

What is the linkage with the government education system?
Bangladesh government has allowed BPS students to appear for Primary Education Terminal Examination which is a fundamental board examination that takes place at the end of class 5.

The effectiveness of this programme was evident when the graduates of the non-formal schools were well ahead of the country average when it came to passing grade for the primary school examination - 97 per cent success rate in 2009, and 99.54 per cent in 2010.

How do we track graduates at secondary schools?
BRAC experienced that its graduates admitted in secondary schools often cannot complete their education due to many critical circumstances. We started the ‘tracking of BRAC graduates at secondary schools’ programme to ensure their enrolment at the secondary level, promote regular attendance, reduce dropout rate so that they successfully complete the course.

BRAC is also regularly in touch with secondary school authorities and other organisations to manage scholarships and full/half free education for BPS graduates.

HOW? BRAC 1 2 3 became the world's bottom-up NGO accidentally. 1972: Bangladesh was about a year old as a new nation liberated after a costly war with Pakistan (with the least in the world) when an extremely local typhoon wiped out about half a million people and the only infrastructure left standing was the offices of shell oil that Sir Fazle Abed had just been appointed to lead after years as as a graduate of architecture from Glasgow University and Chartered Accountancy in London. All the traditional disaster relief agencies linked in round Sir Fazle. Once the immediate work was over Sir Fazle made the decision that serving the poorest's market needs was more valuable (to him) than serving big oils needs. His first 2 apps: Bottom up healthcare and schools networks now create jobs over 100000 each. Apart from the schools, most jobs are open sourced as microfranchises by entrepreneurs. Sir Fazle has now transformed Value Chains (VC- what is?) of about 20 life-shaping service markets in Bangladesh. Along the way. knowledge networking partnerships around investment banking for the poorest has helped transfer solutions to about 12 other poorest or most conflicted countries (a spectacular case write-up is Uganda - see MIT Innovations 2012 Issue 2). And BRAC is the leader of the global alliance of banks with values http://www.gabv.org/ and a pioneer of cashless banking partnership www.bkash.com

EXEMPLARY YOUTH PARTNERING - BRAC

BRAC is one of the top 10 networls for every youth of net generation to link into because it has demonstrated how to innovate job creation in more trillion dollar global (life critical markets) than anyone else we can find. Its methods of value chain analysis - and mapping the greatest purpose a global market scetor could servive in any society are as valuable for ensuring full employment in europe as they are for ending poverty in developing world. It has more economics models than old charities and foundations; it has more economic models for governments; it has more economic promotional models for corporations; in fact any market that is important to youth is likely to find somethiung it can grow more sustainably by colaborating with www.brac.net  -the most economical organisational architecture in the networking world partly because it helps partner all the other most economic brand architectures www.wholeplanet.tv

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:

Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?

Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race.  Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?

Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.
