Organising rural communities into self-reliant community based organisations is the core of AKRSP(I)'s development interventions. We empower rural communities, particularly underprivileged and women, through collectivisation as well as promotion of individual micro-enterprises. Building self-reliant people's institutions for livelihoods enhancement, social inclusion, improvement in health, improvement in education outcomes and improved rural governance is the heart of the organization's approach. Skills and enterprise development have been included as core areas of interventions to address the emerging needs in rural areas of the geographies where we work. Gender and civil society development cuts across all interventions of AKRSP(I).
We bring together required human, financial and technological resources to implement our approach to development. We provide direct professional support to rural communities so that they identify their needs and priorities along with possible interventions to achieve the identified priorities.
