Violating a Sacred Relationship

Ever since after the Liberation War, BRAC, has been working to bring the poor out of extreme poverty. Its philosophy is to provide a range of services to ensure this, from micro finance loans to basic education, health care, human rights and legal services and social development. Earlier this year, BRAC, the world's largest NGO and the only southern NGO to have gone global, celebrated its 35th anniversary. BRAC's ultimate goal has always been to alleviate poverty and empower the poor, says founder and Chairperson, Fazle Hasan Abed, and even wings of BRAC which have been criticised as being profit-making enterprises were set up with the needs of the underprivileged in mind.
