About Us

Welcome to RRN!

Rural Reconstruction Nepal (RRN) is a Nepali non-government, not for profit, social development organisation, initially set up as a small organisation in 1989 by a group of graduates of the Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science (IAAS) with its preceding name as 'Grassroots Institute for Training and Services-Nepal' (GRITS- Nepal). By subscribing to the basic principles of the International Rural Reconstruction Movement, GRITS-Nepal was renamed and officially registered in 1993 as Rural Reconstruction.

Since its inception, RRN has been working with the poor and marginalized people in rural Nepal to empower them in the process of meeting their basic needs, improving livelihoods and building their own institutions
