4.5 lakh ultra poor to get BRAC support by 2020

BRAC said it has set a target to support 4.5 lakh ultra-poor families across the country by 2020 to complement government's effort to eradicate extreme poverty. BRAC's endeavor in this regard was projected at the 'Development Fair 2018'. The three-day fair rounded off yesterday at the National Shilpakala Academy.

BERAC showcased its range of programs implemented for poverty alleviation and development at the fair. Among its programs, targeting the Ultra Poor was specially focused in the event for its dedicated work since 2002 in stamping out extreme poor.

Brochures describing the TUP program activities, leaflets explaining its role in the achievement of country's MDGs and booklets profiling the families successfully graduating from ultra-poverty were among the materials displayed at the BRAC stall at the fair.
