The Rural Development Support Program (RDSP) was established in 1992 by social activists Jane De Sousa and Rosanne Shields. RDSP supports the protection of human rights, with an emphasis on the rights of women, poverty alleviation equality and the prevention of Gender Based Violence. Their main goal is to strengthen civil society within rural areas and to assist in fostering and sustaining community leadership for the collective benefit of these communities.
They receive donations from five different Catholic Church organizations; SACBC, Missio, Misereor, Italian Episcopal Conference, and the Papal Foundation.
