Video: BRAC: 50 Years of Igniting Hope Highlight Reel
BRAC celebrates 50 years of igniting hope at Ford Foundation event
Staff, partners, supporters, and friends gathered to celebrate BRAC’s 50th anniversary at the magnificent Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York City. It was a beautiful evening filled with delicious food, thoughtful conversation, inspiring speeches, and an extraordinary dance performance.
The year 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of BRAC’s founding in Bangladesh in the wake of a war that secured the nation’s independence and a devastating cyclone that left it paralyzed. From those humble beginnings, BRAC has evolved to become the world’s largest Southern-based international development organization. Today, thanks to our supporters and partners, we reach over 100 million people with proven poverty innovations.
