Our Impact

“BRAC is by most measures the largest, fastest-growing non-governmental organization (NGO) in the world—and one of the most businesslike.”

The Economist

“The billion dollars in microloans that BRAC extends each year to poor people is just the beginning of the story of this remarkable organization”

George Soros, Chairman of the Open Society Institute

“Through its visionary moves, BRAC has made a huge contribution to social change in Bangladesh and abroad”
