BRAC’s initiatives to “graduate” the ultra poor out of extreme poverty are now being adapted and implemented all over the world. The CGAP-Ford Foundation Graduation program is an initiative to adapt the methodology of BRAC’s ultra poor program in Bangladesh in ten countries across the world. BRAC Development Institute, in partnership with BRAC USA and the MasterCard Foundation, has researched and analyzed the results of these pilot programs.
