Notch one up for…….Bangladesh?!?

Think of Bangladesh and I think of annual monsoon floods, extreme poverty, and Malthusian nightmare.

So it was a pleasant change to read the words “One of the world’s most commercially-minded and successful NGOs” linked with the country instead, and that too in The Economist magazine.

The article talks about BRAC, the original micro-finance organization, what an incredible job it has done in the country and how it could teach a thing or two to all the Save-the-Childrens and Oxfams of the world.

I could use more of this kind of good news.
Cheers,
Vikash
