Bangla Microbanks- Grameen and BRAC - the pro-youth economics significance of microbanks can systematically be audited to the extent that they turn value chains bottom-up. Born of the new nation of Bangladesh's extreme poverty in the 1970s, these banks lead the world of pro-youth economics through the the number of replicable microfranchises they innovate - catalogue of where to help develop this curriculum. Furthermore, since 1996 Bangladesh became the first place to attract partnerships in mobile village solutions to all the most vital needs youth and families have to be sustainable

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.

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.

40 years ago, my dad at The Economist and I first saw 500 youth sharing knowledge around a digital network. Both of our lifetime passions united in searching for the most purposeful organisations of the net generation - a search dad branded in The Economist from 1972 Entrepreneurial Revolution and which ten years later became our 2024 Report on investing in millennium goals so that the net generation could be the most productive and collaborative time to be alive





So now that Massive Online Open Curriculum has come full circle - we invite everyone to link in to BRAC to call for microeducationsummit and to design 7 MOOCs most needed for youth economics to free the net generation to be the most  communally productive and and purposefully collaborative tome on the planet

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 and a pioneer of cashless banking partnership


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  -the most economical organisational architecture in the networking world partly because it helps partner all the other most economic brand architectures

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"?

POP -Preferential Option Poor

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

What would be the top 50 MOOCS that freed access  of action learning of sustainability goals as worldwide youth's most joyful collaboration through way above zero-sum models of wporldsocialtrade?
