HOPE OVER FATE: Fazel Hasan Abed and the Science of Ending Global Poverty
Fazle Hasan Abed may be the most influential man you’ve never heard of.

A former finance executive with almost no experience in relief aid, he founded BRAC in 1972 aiming to help a few thousand war refugees. A half century later, BRAC is by many measures the largest nongovernmental organization in the world—and by many accounts, the most effective anti-poverty program ever.

Its scale is massive, with 100,000 employees reaching more than 100 million people in Asia and Africa. BRAC seems to stand apart from countless failed development ventures; and Abed’s methods changed the way global policymakers think about poverty.

Join us as we welcome Scott MacMillan, author of “Hope Over Fate: Fazel Hasan Abed and the Science of Ending Global Poverty,” and representatives from BRAC on campus to share the untold story of one of the world’s most successful NGOs and the man behind it all.
