Poverty and inequality plague numerous communities around the world, and women and girls are disproportionately impacted. BRAC creates proven, scalable solutions to uplift women and girls and alleviate poverty and inequality. Through social enterprises to programs targeting health care, education, climate change, youth empowerment, financial inclusion, and more. With the help of your donations, BRAC has reached over 100 million people with poverty solutions and tackled pressing issues of gender
Worldwide, female poverty rates are higher than male poverty rates. Women have fewer opportunities to join the workforce and get an education, which makes achieving financial stability and independence an uphill battle. Research shows that women reinvest up to 90% of their income into their families compared to 30% by men. When we invest in women, families experience increased financial and food security and lower rates of domestic violence, while children are better able to attend school.
BRAC takes a community-centered and data-driven approach to addressing poverty and inequality. To date, BRAC has graduated 14 million children from its schools, trained more than 50,000 women as local community health workers across Asia and Africa, and supported over two million women and their families to graduate out of extreme poverty and into sustainable livelihoods. Your contribution will help BRAC further expand and reach the most vulnerable communities with proven solutions faster.
Our programs educate, empower, expand opportunities, and help communities rise above challenges. And, by centering women and girls, we multiply the long-term impact of our programs as they reinvest into their families and communities.
