Hello and Welcome to NRDF


The National Research and Development Foundation is a private, Non-Governmental Organization established in 1983 under the laws of Saint Lucia to promote research and the expansion of economic

development in St. Lucia. NRDF emerged from the Caribbean Research Center, St. Lucia (1978-1983) - similar Non-Governmental, non-profit institution created to co-ordinate, support and undertake socio-economic research projects.

The Organization functions with a local membership base, a Board of Directors with two special policy committees namely, Credit and Finance, and a Training and Marketing Committee, a General Manager and full-time professional staff.

Two major components of NRDF’S operations are small enterprise development and institutional strengthening.  NRDF also operates a Training Center, including a fully equipped Conference Room with audio-visual resources and a Research Library.

NRDF-the Spirit of Giving



Last year, the NRDF initiated a venture “Let’s Give as a Family” encouraging its internal stakeholders to donate one item towards its hamper drive for the needy within the La Clery community.   As a first effort, the Foundation was able to donate 6 generous hampers,  bringing holiday cheer to the recipients, who have special circumstances of struggle and hardship. This year the NRDF family opened their hearts again to their less fortunate neighbours.
