Our focus areas

An integrated approach to build a equitable and empowered society

Mission & Vision


RDS focuses on creating better society which sustains and offers a better life for all. Development and empowerment of the rural population is the need of the hour. Children, women and the youth need more than the basic facilities provided to them. A society that strives to nurture the rural population by lending a hand of support to make urban facilities available to them is the way to a brighter future.


RDS aims to enable and empower women, youth and children by assisting them in finding their ways to a self-reliant and independent life. We organise workshops and other activities that make the rural population more aware and informed while trying to narrow down disparities in the facilities provided to the rural population by the government.

Prevention of Child Labor Program

Child labor in the country has become great Challenge. Under poverty families contribute majority of children to this ever growing peril. The very reason is their poverty and incapability to sustain a regular livelihood. When starvation becomes inevitable for the family, they sell their children as domestic help. Children are employed at match factories, mining, quarries, construction sites and carpet factories Children also made to work long time with short time of rest etc. Many of the children from SC, ST Communities under the pretests of getting practice the children are engaged in labor from the tender age of five. The children are exposed to unhygienic conditions; they eat the left- over thrown on roads their mental and physical growth is disturbed to great extent. In order to rescue these unfortunate children we have conducted awareness to prevent child labor.

Free Coaching for Competitive Exams

In the recent years number of schools or collages is opened for education from nursery to post- graduation and also professional courses. But most of them are not within the reach of common man especially Minorities. The above collages are collecting tuition fees donations etc abnormally. There are good number of students belonging to Minority Communities who are not able to complete other community children who are coming from Corporate Collages for examinations like MCET, LAWCET, ICET and also participate in examinations like BSRB, RRB and Group 1 Services etc. Therefore we gave special coaching to the poor SC, ST, OBC and Minority Community students for competitive examinations like BSRB ,RRB ,APPSE ,Police Recruitment and also entrance examinations for Medical/Engineering etc.
