Balochistan Rural Support Programme (BRSP) is an autonomous not-for-profit organization working in the rural areas of Balochistan.
In 1991, the “Pak-German self help initiative” was transformed into a company limited by guarantee named as “Balochistan Rural Support Programme” under new organizational and administrative structures.
The overall mission of BRSP is to facilitate the establishment and improvement of sustainable livelihoods of the rural poor in Balochistan. This is accomplished through the mobilization of poor communities to help them plan and implement their own development agenda. The rural development programs of BRSP have helped communities to form community organizations for women’s empowerment, natural resource management, physical infrastructure development, human resource development, enterprise promotion, and credit and savings projects. In order to harness this potential, BRSP programs organize communities into multi-sector Community Organizations (COs), which are then used as a platform for planning and implementing various developmental activities by the community members themselves. A properly functioning CO has both social and economic 'value', thus a position to contribute to alleviating poverty and socially, brings people together to work for the common good. The CO also generates funds for their own initiatives and establishes linkages with Government Departments and private sector.
