RDS focuses on enabling rural women, youth and senior citizens through self-employment opportunities. The NGO operates around Chickballapur and Kolar District of Karnataka.


Rural Development Society

Our organization aims to improve the living standards of poor and backward classes around the districts of Chickballapur and Kolar. RDS provides basic education for children, housing facilities for the homeless and also various training in art, tailoring and computer science. The NGO enables rural employment through organizing various trainings for farmers in matters of agriculture, animal husbandry, horticulture, animal rearing etc. This Organisation also provides aid to the disabled and even organizes training in sports for the underprivileged. RDS is an NGO that also emphasizes a great deal on overall environmental welfare and offers guidance on minimizing pollution. We work for the empowerment of women by educating them about the benefits of micro-financing. RDS has formed 700 self-help groups and 600 joint liability groups. RDS so far has reached over 5000 beneficiaries.


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.
