RURAL SUPPORT PROGRAMMES NETWORK

The Rural Support Programmes Network (RSPN) is the largest development network of Pakistan, with an outreach to over 35 million rural Pakistanis. It consists of 12 member Rural Support Programmes (RSPs), which have been operating since 1982. The RSPs espouse a common approach to rural development: social mobilisation. Social mobilisation harnesses people’s potential by fostering and strengthening participatory, transparent and accountable organisations of the people for poverty alleviation and to improve their quality of life.
