We recognize the gender concept that both genders are equal and committed to sharing of roles, resources and responsible for equitable development.

We seek to uphold the value and dignity of every human being at all times and RFDP endeavors to uphold and respect the rights of every person including children. This is done during our planning implementing and monitoring of our programs, projects, and plans.
RFDP promotes and believes in the culture of openness in the running and governing of the organization programs and projects both to direct and indirect beneficiaries and development partners (client’s and partners).

The success, development, and progress of RFDP will be based on this value, and we shall tirelessly work hard in all our activities.
A fundamental factor to the success of RFDP’s projects is the teamwork and involvement of the Community at the grass root level in activity implementation and decision making and the ever presence of the organization in the community. RFDP shall ensure team in implementation of projects.
