Initiated in 2002, BRAC's Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction Targeting the Ultra Poor (CFPR-TUP) programme is specifically designed to meet the needs of ultra poor households, who are too poor to access the benefit from traditional development interventions such as microfinance. The programme emerged out of three decades of learning from our rural poverty alleviation programmes.
