BRSP's history goes back to the “Pak-German self-help Project” which was initiated in 1983, which was a collaborative effort of federal Republic of Germany and Government of Pakistan. The project was implemented by the Local Government Department with the technical support of GTZ (German Agency for Technical Co-operation). The initiative primarily aimed at developing the socio economic condition of poor rural areas of Balochistan.
In the year 1991, the successful manifestation of IRD programs at a limited scale, paved the way for the transformation of the project into the Balochistan Rural Support Program (BRSP). BRSP, under the new organizational and administrative structures, registered in the same year under the Companies Ordinance as a non-profit organization dedicated to rural development in the province.
