RDF has established a network of viable national NGOs to carry out development programmes nationwide, jointly keeping in view the overall objectives of the Foundation. The RDF NGO network is the main operational arm of the foundation. RDF carries out field activities through these NGOs. RDF acts as facilitator for these Network members and contributes in their training and capacity building. RDF also provides them technical and functional guidance. The projects which are prepared by RDF NGO-Network members are checked, refined and submitted to Government of Pakistan or donor agencies for funding.
RDF continuously strives to strengthen its National NGOs Network by expanding membership to more NGOs/CBOs in the four provinces of Pakistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, which are active in rural development, poverty alleviation and other fields. It is planned that the National Network should be well integrated and coordinated so that process of development may be accelerated to uplift the rural areas and masses.
RDF has formally devised a system for the expansion of its member NGOs network through out the country. For this purpose a formal system of membership is devised with a nominal fee and other application requirements with proof of effective working for the cause of development in different sectors as envisaged in the aims and objectives of the RDF Constitution.
