Grassroot Sports Management at RDT, Anantapur

Pro Sport Development (PSD) has been working with globally renowned social development organization, Rural Development Trust (RDT), in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh since 2015 to provide management and coach training support to their sport development project, Anantapur Sports Academy, that has been running in the district of Anantapur since 2002.

RDT, founded in 1969 by Vincent Ferrer and Anne Ferrer, has been carrying out various need-based welfare and integrated programs of development to improve quality of life of rural poor, especially marginalized and underprivileged sections. The organization’s interventions cover major sectors such as education, women empowerment, community health, hospitals, ecology, cultural and sports.

RDT believes that youth participation in sports is necessary for the growth, self-esteem and confidence of rural children and has been undertaking suitable initiatives as part of Anantapur Sports Academy to foster the latent talents of rural children in different sporting disciplines.

As part of their long term development plan to nurture the talent of rural children, RDT has built the “Anantapur Sports Village” (ASV), which is a top class sporting venue equipped with modern amenities and infrastructure, on par with national & international standards.
