Complete information and background of the organization

BRAC Afghanistan

In 2002, BRAC started its first international operation by venturing into Afghanistan. Since then, we have continued to play a significant role in the country’s development. We provide essential services and support in 95 districts under 14 provinces and hard to reach communities.

With support from the UK Department for International Development, our education project ensures secondary, higher secondary, technical and vocational education for over 49,000 girls. We work on systematic reform to improve access and performance of students, primarily through community based schools and hub schools after graduation. Our approach improves participation, raises awareness on gender equality and child rights, and encourages ownership of the community.

The Ministry of Public Health guides us in reducing the prevalence of malaria. We work with female community health workers to assist the government in improving access to quality health care, especially for new mothers and children.

We support social development projects in partnership with the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development through the Citizen Charter programme. We work with communities, as well as provincial and national level officials of the Ministry, to build their rural infrastructure. We are also building capacity through our BRAC Training and Resource Centre in Kabul. We train our staff, as well staff from other organisations in the public and private sector.

Our Vision
A world free from all forms of exploitation and discrimination where everyone has the opportunity to realise their potential.

Our Mission
Our mission is to empower people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy, disease and social injustice. Our interventions aim to achieve large scale, positive changes through economic and social programmes that enable men and women to realise their potential.

Our Values
Integrity. Innovation. Inclusiveness. Effectiveness.

OUR JOURNEY

In 1972, Sir Fazle Hasan Abed founded BRAC in post-war Bangladesh. The organisation became a household name over the next 45 years, creating opportunities for millions of people living in poverty.

Within the Global South, BRAC has expanded at scale in other developing countries with a distinctive integrated approach, adapted to each country context. Our institutional expertise, through decades of implementing programmes across multiple sectors, is currently being applied in ten countries outside Bangladesh.

Together, we act as a catalyst to help people realise their potential. Our mantra is simple – pilot, perfect and scale up. In the years 2016 and 2017, we were ranked #1 NGO in the world by Geneva-based NGO Advisor for our impact, innovation and sustainability.
