Dhaka, Bangladesh

BRAC is a development organisation dedicated to alleviating poverty by empowering the poor to bring about change in their own lives. BRAC is engaged in the long-term task of improving the living conditions of the rural poor globally, and to help individuals develop, manage and control their own destiny.


Since 2008, BRAC has been implementing Aflatoun in both BRAC primary schools and public schools. Students primarily experience Aflatoun as a weekly 30-minute class where they learn about saving money and resources, being creative and entrepreneurial, and being active change-makers in their community. Children’s Aflatoun enterprise projects include raising livestock, as well as making dolls, handmade fans, terra cotta objects and wall mats.
