How is BANG consortium ensuring fair trade in a foreign country?
BANG consortium visits BRAC and our production facilities in Bangladesh on a regular basis.   We conducted our own enquiries into BRAC’s activities prior to making contact with BRAC, an organization which has since inspired us beyond belief.  BRAC’s programs are endorsed by OXFAM, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Tony Blair, to name a few high profile supporters.  AusAid contributes financially to BRAC’s microfinance project which contributes employment generation for 23,000 poor families in the northwest districts of Bangladesh through providing access to credit services.
