Beginning in 2002, BRAC pioneered the Ultra-Poor Graduation approach in Bangladesh, a comprehensive, time-bound, and sequenced set of interventions designed to enable the most vulnerable and destitute households to progress along a pathway out of extreme poverty. BRAC established the Ultra-Poor Graduation Initiative (UPGI) to deliver technical assistance to agents of scale on how to adapt and implement the Graduation approach and other holistic economic inclusion and social protection strategies. For more than a decade, BRAC has served as a leading provider of global technical assistance and advisory services for the Graduation approach to governments, multilateral institutions, and NGOs worldwide.
At this time, BRAC UPGI is experiencing rapid growth across its US-based and global teams. As part of training for incoming staff, BRAC UPGI will deliver a virtual Technical Assistance Bootcamp, which will include approximately 6-10 hours of video content as well as live virtual meetings.
It's especially timely now as the Technical Assistance team has needed to adapt its services for a virtual setting without international travel. Therefore, BRAC UPGI is also developing a micro-course for trainers and field staff globally.
Objective of Consultant
