Dear Mann Deshi Friends and Supporters,
Thank you very much for your continuous support to Mann Deshi Udyogini (B-School for Rural Women). Over the past year, Mann Deshi trained roughly 13,400 students through its Business Schools and Mobile Buses; over 60% of whom attended its financial literacy and Deshi MBA program. Mann Deshi dedicated more time and resources, especially in the past six months, in ensuring their basic financial literacy and Deshi MBA targets were not only met, but actually exceeded. Here are some highlights:
273 Deshi MBA entrepreneurs trained in the first year of launching the flagship program (January 2010), almost 10% higher than the estimated number. Deshi Entrepreneurs Project enables business women to grow their business to their own benefit of the entire community.
Over the past year, Mann Deshi’s senior team has worked to transition the culture of the organization from being vocational training centric towards a management and financial training focus. Their new sentiment is reflected in action – Mann Deshi’s senior team recently created three new mid-management level positions: Financial Literacy Coordinator, Deshi MBA Coordinator, and Business School Program Development Officer. The first two positions helps direct a greater amount of internal capacity, resources and management towards the financial literacy and Deshi MBA programs. Mann Deshi has also established partnership with ACCION. ACCION’s financial literacy and Dialogue on Business modules are very similar in their objectives and target audience to Mann Deshi’s financial literacy and Deshi MBA programs.
