Response Network is a Non-Governmental Organization based in Livingstone, Southern Province of Zambia.

The organization was founded upon the realization that for development to be sustainable, it has to start with the people in the communities without hand-outs.

RN started its operations in 2005 supported by Norwegian Church Aid (NCA), but the simple self-help method was soon considered a success as several hundred self-help initiatives started up in the targeted villages every year as a result of village motivation meetings. More partners showed interest in the approach, and every year new partners came on board, including Norad, Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Federation of Sports and Norwegian Disability as well as several private supporters.
