BRAC, the world’s largest international development organization, works to empower the poor to improve their own lives through economic, social, and legal programs. The organization aims to unleash human potential and address the many dimensions of poverty.
BRAC gives people the tools to fight poverty across all fronts, offering services in the areas of economic empowerment, enterprise development, livelihood training, education and health, human rights, and legal services. BRAC’s Human Rights and Legal Aid Services (HRLS) program provides legal education, legal aid, and support services that promote the legal empowerment of the poor.
With Omidyar Network’s support, BRAC is expanding the HRLS program to address property rights. BRAC will help individuals and communities understand their legal entitlement to property, formalize their rights, and leverage their assets to invest in the future. Launched in Bangladesh, the program aims to develop scalable frameworks to defend property rights and combat poverty on a global scale.
