BRAC, the world’s largest NGO, wanted to help previously unreachable people in extreme poverty build sustainable livelihoods long-term. So, in 2002 we pioneered the Graduation approach – a holistic sequence of interventions that helps people escape the poverty trap for good. When LSE researchers found 95 percent of participants in Bangladesh continued improving their living standards seven years after the intervention ended, we knew Graduation had the potential to transform lives.

Building on that success, BRAC Ultra-Poor Graduation Initiative aims to scale Graduation through governments worldwide to help 4.6 million more households escape extreme poverty by 2026.
