In Dhaka, 495 households were destroyed after the city’s largest slum caught fire on Sunday, December 4, 2016. We’re looking to raise $300 per family, in seven days, to start rebuilding their lives. BRAC is uniquely positioned to provide emergency support due to its proximity and disaster response experience.
In Tanzania, where 33% of the population lives below the poverty line, people depend on local, agricultural production; yet lack access to training, technology, and high quality supplies.This project will raise the skills and productivity of small scale farmers, 84% of whom will be women, by establishing community support and providing high quality inputs and training.
Pakistan struggles to reach universal enrollment and gender parity in primary education. To address this, BRAC will open pre-primary schools for children from poor families, especially girls, and train local women as teachers in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province.
BRAC will provide significant support to Afghanistan as it works towards universal enrollment by 2020. We will train thousands of local women as community school teachers, set up primary schools for girls who would be left behind, work closely with communities to raise awareness of the importance of educating girls, and engage other NGOs to get girls in school.
