BRAC UK
Organisation

Founded in Bangladesh and now working in eleven countries, we are by some measures the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, an innovator in poverty eradication and a social enterprise offering sustainable pathways out of poverty. Demonstrating the power of a holistic, community-based approach and best known for the scale of our programmes we have created opportunities for 135 million people, mostly women, to create lasting change.

Poor communities are crucial actors and change makers in development and not passive recipients of aid. Working together we design programmes that promote social inclusion through microfinance, education, healthcare, agriculture, livelihood support, legal aid services, community empowerment and profit making social enterprises which feedback into development and take a triple bottom line approach.

BRAC UK works as part of the international BRAC family to raise awareness and funds for our low cost, high impact approach. Developing partnerships in Europe with non-governmental organisations, academics, research institutes, the private sector and governments.

Leicester Polytechnic officially became De Montfort University on 26 June 1992. The name was chosen to reflect the University’s long association with Leicester by commemorating the celebrated Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, a crucial figure in medieval history who established the first parliament in 1265. Our reputation for quality and distinctiveness in teaching and research is a direct result of our heritage.
