As the nation counts down to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the great independence of Bangladesh, BRAC, one of its largest development partners, is also completing its 49th year of its establishment.

When the War of Liberation broke out Sir Fazle Hasan Abed left his senior executive’s job at Pakistan Shell Oil and went to Europe where he mobilized public opinion in support of the freedom fighters and refugees fleeing home in millions. He returned to Bangladesh in January when thousands of impoverished refugees were going back to their villages destroyed in the war. Sir Fazle along with his fellows and friends founded BRAC in March (1972), taking up relief and rehabilitation efforts in the far corner of Sunamganj district for the refugees returning to their torn homes. 

For BRAC, the next five decades have been a journey of liaison with the government of Bangladesh and other partners to bring essential services and opportunities for self-development to the doors of the people who need them the most.
