As a communications consultant for VisionSpring, one of BRAC’s valued partners, I was amazed by the depth and scope of BRAC’s work in Bangladesh and globally. VisionSpring is a social enterprise dedicated to reducing poverty and generating opportunity in the developing world through the sale of affordable eyeglasses. Together, BRAC and VisionSpring have trained tens of thousands of entrepreneurs across Bangladesh to sell VisionSpring eyeglasses to those who need them to work, earn a living, and support their families.

At VisionSpring, I was continually inspired by the pioneering spirit of BRAC’s entrepreneurs, who bring much-needed health products to those living in remote communities. I was especially moved by BRAC’s dedication to the flood relief effort in Pakistan, a tragedy around which few other organizations have mobilized or dedicated so much time and attention. When I learned that I would have the opportunity to support BRAC’s mission directly through BRAC USA, I jumped at the chance. I am delighted to be part of such a knowledgeable and committed team. I hope that my time with BRAC USA can further their efforts to foster a better world by empowering people and communities in situations of poverty.
