Amara and Garrett will study BRAC, a non-profit organization located in Bangladesh. They will travel to Bangladesh to examine how BRAC’s holisitic model of poverty alleviation and social enterprises enable community development within a micro-finance framework. In addition, they will investigate how variations of this model could be utilized in poverty alleviation efforts in the U.S., specifically in the revenue generating initiatives of the DC Central Kitchen.
