CARRD's mission is to be instrumental in the transformation of the rural poor into viable, vibrant, productive, gender-sensitive and environment-conscious rural communities.
The organization hopes to become a center of excellence and innovation in rural development, social entrepreneurship, policy research and advocacy.
CARRD’s objectives include to assist in the education, organization and mobilization of the peasantry for their legitimate interests and welfare; to conduct policy studies that can provide theoretical guidance to the peasant movement; to provide assistance to farmers’ groups in order to enable them to avail of appropriate rural technology; to establish collaborative linkages with private and government individuals, groups and movements; and to sustain the above-mentioned goals.
CARRD's constituencies include agrarian reform beneficiaries/farmers.
