KRDS, as we see, was not built in a day. It took above three decades of strive and straggle to grow its present stature from a very humble beginning. It goes back to early twenty years beginning at the end of the last century, when it started as a kindergarten stage; the activities were conducted for women empowerment and capacity building programs in support with local resources and administration. The participants were taught not only to gather knowledge in empowering themselves but also inspire them to think for relentless interventions in ‘social just causes’ meant for the benefits of scores of deprived and underprivileged at the very grass-roots level.

Gradually, the institution spread its activities and branches throughout the district and later it extends to other districts also, with a view to give benevolent services to mankind by providing sustainable developmental activities to the people in distress along with the motto of returning them to the mainstream of the society. KRDS has given main emphasis on health, water & sanitation, socio-economical program, child education and livelihood facilitation with a major emphasis on skill-orientation centric employability activities in collaboration with state, central and foreign agencies.
