This study aims to understand how BRAC-GJD has forwarded BRAC’s vision to free the world from all forms of exploitation and discrimination, where women, men and youth have the opportunity to realise their potential through this new approach of gender integration. The study intends to examine how GJD and programs (MF, HNPP, BEP and Enterprise) have jointly implemented BRAC’s corporate gender strategies at organizational and community levels. To understand the process of gender integration in the selected programs of BRAC, this study intends to carry out a detailed assessment following a qualitative approach. The assessment analyzed the strategies and activities that have already been adopted for meeting the needs of the both female and male participants of the programs by undertaking reviews and stakeholder consultations.
