Operating in 10 countries across Africa and Asia, BRAC International is a leading nonprofit organisation with a mission to empower people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy, disease, and social injustice. BRAC International Enterprises B.V. (BIEBV) is a socially responsible for-profit organization dedicated to scaling impactful and sustainable social enterprises that contribute to women’s economic empowerment and improving the quality of life for low-income communities.
BETL is currently piloting a new social enterprise model for Early Childhood Development (ECD) to improve the development of 3-5-year-old children in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Through this enterprise, BRAC aims to catalyze the ECD private sector in Tanzania by developing a sustainable business model for the provision of low-cost, high quality and scalable play-based ECD.
Using a cross-subsidy model to achieve this, BETL is piloting full-day ECD centers targeting middle-income families in Dar es Salaam to subsidize two ECD models targeting low-income families: 1) lower-cost, lower-resource full-day ECD centers, and 2) a mobile ECD center that will provide 1-hour ECD lessons to existing day-care centers and low-income communities. The BETL team recently opened the project’s first 5 schools and is currently in the process of launching the first mobile ECD center.
