The Rural Development Trust (RDT) is a non-governmental organization committed to the progress of vulnerable and disadvantaged communities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Southern India. Founded in 1969, they have been working with the Chenchu population of the Nallamalas since 2010 and made major contributions in addressing housing, clean water, education, and health, and their daily tireless work is an inspiration. Their leadership has provided Lokana programmatic guidance, and their field staff have worked shoulder-to-shoulder with us in organizing and conducting the comprehensive eye screening camps. We are proud to partner with RDT.
Lokana is a secular organization. We are comprised of people of many religious backgrounds, and we serve people of all faiths with respect and acceptance.
