Building Relationships Across Communities (BRAC UK)
BRAC UK is an international development organisation. Founded and registered as a charity in London in 2006, it has the same mission and vision as BRAC.
BRAC UK's main areas of focus are: programme implementation among diaspora communities in the UK adapting BRAC's successful approaches, advocacy for successful development led by the south, and fund raising for BRAC programmes, primarily in Africa and Asia.
BRAC UK's mission is to alleviate poverty and empower the poor in the UK, Africa, Asia and Latin America.It aims to break the barriers of poverty through economic development; to increase their opportunities for education; to improve their health; and to uphold their human rights.
In the UK, plans are underway to implement a women health volunteers initiative with diaspora communities in East London, in addition to financial education for women and young people. Investigation is underway to determine the needs of Somali young people in North West London, and how they can be linked to BRAC UK’s efforts with communities in Tower Hamlets, East London.
