Small change for big change
More than 700 million people live in extreme poverty. We know poverty and inequality are human-made, so they can be unmade.
At BRAC, we believe everyone has the power to unlock their potential when they have access to the right tools, skills, and opportunities they need to escape the poverty trap.
Join us on #EndPovertyDay by giving up your morning cup of coffee and donating $5 to support vulnerable people living in poverty.
Victoria: mother, entrepreneur, dreamer
The impact of your donation
Born in Tanzania, Victoria lacked the financial security to start a business and support her family. While working as a maid, Victoria learned how to sew but still struggled to make ends meet. Learn how she discovered her entrepreneurial spirit.
When we work together to end poverty, we see results
children graduated from BRAC schools
vulnerable women and families accessing microfinance services
families graduated out of extreme poverty
farmers trained to increase their productivity and income
Take poverty personally
Give up your cup to end extreme poverty
To celebrate #EndPovertyDay, a group of generous donors will match ALL donations made this October.
Your gift has a ripple effect for families living in poverty
There was a time when Scholastica used to have to ask her neighbors for a little salt to add to her family’s meals. But, with ten children – four biological and six adopted from her community – the requests started to add up. Eventually, she stopped asking. But, like all mothers, Scholastica was determined to provide for her children. After joining BRAC's Graduation program, Scholastica leveraged her aptitude for entrepreneurship and started a vegetable stand. Now, with her expanding grocery business, her children never go to bed hungry.
