PMRDFs: Talented young professionals with a desire to participate and initiate a larger change

" I find the PMRD Fellows very avid learners of various rural development practices in respective districts and related theoretical aspects. The field of rural development being very huge the challenge is to give them a good understanding of various dimensions of development and alleviation of poverty and simultaneously to guide them to take up suitable projects focusing on particular aspects of development relevant for the district."
