BRAC UK
Organisation

Founded in Bangladesh and now working in eleven countries, we are by some measures the largest non-governmental organisation in the world, an innovator in poverty eradication and a social enterprise offering sustainable pathways out of poverty. Demonstrating the power of a holistic, community-based approach and best known for the scale of our programmes we have created opportunities for 135 million people, mostly women, to create lasting change.

Poor communities are crucial actors and change makers in development and not passive recipients of aid. Working together we design programmes that promote social inclusion through microfinance, education, healthcare, agriculture, livelihood support, legal aid services, community empowerment and profit making social enterprises which feedback into development and take a triple bottom line approach.

BRAC UK works as part of the international BRAC family to raise awareness and funds for our low cost, high impact approach. Developing partnerships in Europe with non-governmental organisations, academics, research institutes, the private sector and governments.

Kew Foundation
Organisation
Established as an independent charity in 1990, Kew Foundation raises much needed funds from individuals, companies and trusts to support Kew's work.
VisionFund
Organisation

VisionFund is the world's largest Christian microfinance network, active in over 30 countries.  We offer small loans, savings, and insurance to families living in poverty, especially those in hard-to-reach, rural locations.  Almost half of our clients are small-holder farmers.  As part of World Vision, we build economic resilience in communities to help children grow-up with improved nutrition, healthcare and access to education.  This year we impacted the lives of over four million children, with nearly three-quarters of our loans going to women.
