BRAC’s founder, Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, saw that the power of hope could spark light around the world.

“Poverty is not just poverty of money. We also see a poverty of self-esteem, hope, opportunity, and freedom. People trapped in a cycle of destitution often don’t realize their lives can be changed for the better through their own activities. Once they understand that, it’s like a light gets turned on.” -Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, BRAC Founder

A lifeline helped her withstand an unprecedented crisis

Chompa’s story of resilience

When COVID-19 reached Chompa’s community in Bangladesh, she and her husband were out of work for 20 days. Forced to spend their savings and ration food, her children faced hunger. BRAC rapidly reached Chompa with emergency cash assistance, enabling her to survive the crisis and get back on her feet.
