NSPDT makes poultry possible for poor people.

NSPDT’s smallholder community poultry model enables poor women in rural India to start and run successful poultry enterprises.

Our vision

To inspire, encourage, facilitate and promote the emergence of an efficient farmer-owned network of well-organised empowered smallholder poultry farmers, setting the very best standards of professional excellence and wholesome development.

Our mission

Promote and advance smallholder poultry as an instrument of bettering lives and livelihoods of rural families.

The National Smallholder Poultry Development Trust (NSPDT) is a Private Charitable Trust registered in New Delhi. NSPDT is also registered as a charitable organisation under Sections 12A and 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

PRADAN, India’s leading rural development NGO, has facilitated the establishment of NSPDT.

NSPDT’s establishment has been supported by the Aga Khan Foundation through the European Commission co-financed SCALE Programme. NSPDT is also supported by Rabobank Foundation.
