BRAC-AKFC Learning Partnership
BRAC, the world’s largest indigenous NGO, is implementing a ground-breaking program designed to help some of the poorest populations in Bangladesh to improve their lives and livelihoods. Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction – Targeting the Ultra Poor (CFPR-TUP) is a multi-donor, multi-dimensional program that is experimenting with asset transfers and stipends, combined with enterprise development training, social development support, and health care support, as a means of helping the ultra poor – largely women – to graduate into mainstream poverty alleviation programs.
AKFC, with support from the Canadian International Development Agency, has partnered with BRAC to gather and share the lessons, models, methodologies and best practices emerging out of the innovative CFPR-TUP program. The BRAC-AKFC Learning Partnership supports these efforts to document and disseminate learnings that have the possibility for wider replication both inside and outside Bangladesh. At the same time, the Learning Partnership is also helping to build BRAC’s capacity to conduct research relevant to CFPR.
