About RDRS Bangladesh:
Established in 1972 to assist with relief and rehabilitation of greater Rangpur-Dinajpur region immediately following the War of Independence of Bangladesh in 1971, the RDRS program evolved into a sectoral then comprehensive effort. Formerly the Bangladesh field program of the Geneva-based Lutheran World Federation/Department for World Service, RDRS became a national development organization in 1997.
A just and peaceful society where citizens live in dignity, freed from poverty, distress and ignorance in a sustainable environment.
RDRS works with the poor and their organizations in order to build their capacity to advance their empowerment; create resilience to withstand adversity; and improve access to opportunities for the poor to realize decent lives free from poverty and distress.
RDRS is governed by a Board of Trustees comprising leading actors from the humanitarian sector in Bangladesh. Its programs run by a Management Committee consisted of senior staff members. Regular co-ordination meetings are held involving management and supervisory staff from across RDRS.
RDRS Bangladesh is registered under NGO Affairs Bureau. Its registration number is 003; and registration date is 22 April 1981 with renewal on 15 May 2015.
RDRS is now a major multisectoral development agency focused on disadvantaged northwest Bangladesh. It provides development opportunities and services to 1,940,785 landless and marginal families in 15 districts, and work with 385 community-based organizations (Federations) seeking to empower their grassroots members. RDRS maintains a staffing of over 3,000, over 90% of whom are field-based.
RDRS Working Area
RDRS is unusual is maintaining a concentrated geographic program, focusing on 8 districts and 57 Upazilas (sub-districts) mainly in deprived north-west Bangladesh in Rangpur Division, far from the overcentralized economic and political powerbase of Dhaka, Chittagong, even Rajshahi.
This corner of Bangladesh remains one of its most vulnerable, with regular flooding and riverbank erosion of the Brahmaputra and other rivers dominating life, particularly in the east of the region. The climate is colder and drier than the rest of the country, also causing problems for the poor, and drought in the west.
In very recent years, RDRS has expanded its program to a few more districts in the other part of the country.
RDRS working area now covers:
15 districts – Panchagarh, Thakurgaon, Dinajpur, Rangpur, Nilphamari, Lalmonirhat, Kurigram, Gaibandha, Jamalpur, Sylhet, Moulvibazar, Habiganj, Brahmanbaria, Natore and Naogaon.
The Central Coordination Office of RDRS is situated in Rangpur, while Head Office in Dhaka.
