Innovation Description

The Ultra Poor Graduation Approach is a comprehensive, time-bound and sequenced set of interventions designed to graduate households from ultra poverty into sustainable livelihoods. Pioneered by BRAC in 2002, it has been scaled in Bangladesh, where 1.7 million households (approximately 6.8 million people) have graduated over the past 15 years with a 95% success rate. It is a proven, well-researched, replicable, and scalable integrated development approach to address the needs of the global poor.
