Technology for the Graduation Approach and Savings Groups

Elaine Chang

Technology for the Graduation Approach and Savings Groups

Developed by the Bangladesh-based NGO, BRAC, the Graduation Approach to lifting the ultra-poor out of extreme poverty uses a holistic approach of providing participants access to savings groups, skills coaching, access to healthcare, and other services, so participants can graduate out of poverty. Graduation Programs have seen amazing results, including a 433% economic return and providing the power of hope.

Managing a graduation program means being able to track many different types of data points over time. Technology has the power to help these organizations with their data and multiple phases, from targeting ultra poor participants for placement in savings groups, assessing when participants have reached certain milestones, and to tracking progress over time.

Join our webinar as we hear from Monica Kundu of the BOMA Project and Celeste Brubaker of Village Enterprise, as they share how they’re using technology to run their graduation programs and savings groups.


Date: Wednesday, June 26

Time: 10:30a EDT / 2:30p GMT
