The APF Fellows Program is for U.S. based students and professionals who are committed to creating positive socioeconomic change in Pakistan.
APF Fellows serve the Rural Support Program Network (RSPN), the largest development network in Pakistan, which is comprised of eleven Rural Support Programmes (RSPs). They espouse a common approach to rural development: social mobilization centered on the belief that impoverished people have the innate potential to help themselves by better managing their limited resources if they organize and are provided with social, technical, and financial support.
APF Fellows will be placed at the National Rural Support Program (NRSP) in Islamabad, Pakistan to work a project. NRSP works with over two million rural households, 150,000 community organizations, and 500 local support organizations in Azad Kashmir, Punjab, Sindh, and Baluchistan.
