Find National NGO expertise in Bangladesh

Bangladesh has benefited from the input of international NGOs, which have, over time, branched out into national organisations that continue to exist today. These NGOs effectively operate like an institutional welfare state. Local income is a key part of the business plan for many of these NGOs. Bangladesh is home to one of the largest national NGOs in the world – the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC). It is also home to the most prominent microfinance institution, the Grameen Bank. With its founder, Muhammad Yunus, the Bank was jointly awarded the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for its pioneering efforts in microfinance, which helped to create and foster social development among the country’s poorest people.
