Restless Development India

Restless Development

Restless Development is an international non-government organisation that has a global vision of “Young people taking a leadership role in addressing the most urgent issues facing their countries and the world, supported fully by their governments, their communities, businesses and civil society institutions”.

Restless Development India has been working with young people in India since 1985. More than 200 volunteers are working with Restless to deliver eight programmes that acknowledge young people’s concerns, from the engaging urban communities in the Delhi slums, to delivering DfID’s International Citizen Service in Tamil Nadu. Restless Development India is increasingly integrating a rights and gender based approach across all programmes, and exploring how technology can both empower communities and support Restless Development’s dynamic accountability approach.
