We work at the grassroots level throughout the Muslim World to counter violent extremism before it takes hold, to promote tolerance and understanding, and to foster better relations with the United States.
America’s Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) is proud to report that BRAC, a listed organization within the AUA Directory, has been selected as a Devex Top 40 Development Innovator based on a poll of thousands of Devex members, who collectively comprise one of the largest networks of global aid and international development professionals.
The honorees were recognized last night, April 21st, 2011, at a reception at the House of Sweden in Washington, DC.
BRAC volunteers are eligible to apply for the AUA Mosaic Scholarship, upon choosing a Muslim-majority country, which helps cover costs of travel expenses and program fees.
