INTRODUCTION


BRAC is the vanguard of development activities in Bangladesh promoting just and sustainable development through three core programs-development of rural and urban poor, primary education and basic health care. It has its network in all the districts of Bangladesh and 400 of its 468  sub-districts. BRAC's goals are alleviation of poverty and empowerment of the poor.
