Before mentorship program, executive committee members including general members did not know about regular organizational activities such as audit, renewable, etc. They were unaware about the concept of regular monthly meeting, leadership transformation, AGM, etc. Organization was not renewed for almost 5 years. There was no proper documentation and reporting. Though, organization had a policy, none were aware about it. They were not clear about their duties, roles and responsibilities. None of them had received trainings regarding organization functioning/management.

After introducing mentorship program, in the organization, they have started to do regular audit, AGM, and leadership transformation as per organizational policy. They have started to keep proper meeting minute. Also, have been more focused on their documentation part. They have now started to keep proper written documentation of savings and credit related information including preparing voucher and ledger. Members of the mentee organization have gone through organizational policy and accordingly have divided duties and responsibilities among members. For smooth functioning of the organization, they have received various trainings such as account management training, leadership development training, report and proposal writing training, etc. Mentee organization has started to conduct local festivals in coordination with local authority.

Shree Makar Ganesh Krishi Mahila Samuha was established in the year 2015-06-18 AD with 25 members in Pharping, Kathmandu Warda no.06 with a motive to provide creditwithout mortgage and with minimal interest rate to poor and voiceless women of that region who were involved in agriculture. Women group were inspired by the notion “Little drops make the mighty Ocean”, so, they started saving out of their pocket money and formed an agriculture co-operative at one of the member’s house with free rental cost for almost two years. Most of the women of the region are involved in agriculture, so co-operative always focuses on providing smooth credit facility to women. They provide advanced credit facility without mortgage to ease their agriculture production. They also provide seasonal crop seeds, organic compost for free of cost. Their work and contribution to the community as a whole has been recognized slowly, that is why they have started getting donations, agriculturalequipment and tools, out of which, co-operative provides skill based agriculture related training, tunnels for horticulture and vegetables farming, animal husbandry related services for free of cost to enhance the skill and capacity of women involved in agriculture and farming.

Ms. Basnet, president of the organization came to know about Tewa organization during her travel. She took her first grant from Tewa in the year 2015. Tewa reached organization in the form of mentorship program after earthquake in the year 2018. Out of grant received from Tewa, mentee organization’s member received training on compost formation and vegetable farming. After realizing the effectiveness and fruitfulness of training program, mentee organization requested for some more trainings and capacity building programs.Members of mentee organizations had difficulty to even pronounce their name before introducing mentorship program in their organization. They now have improvised their communication skills and have gained confidence in public speaking. Mentorship program also provided socio-psycho counselling program to mentees, which thus, has helped them to overcome their personal level stress. This helped mentees to gain confidence in Tewa as a guardian and support partner as well. During COVID, mentee organization conducted various kind of awareness campaign and provided nutritional foods and relief support packages to single women, diseased and senior citizens. Mentee organization provides various kind of capacity building program out of Tewa’s grant to member women, which has helped them to perform effectively in their agricultural production. Mentorship program also has helped mentee organization in advanced and organized office management. Mentees have also participated in “2 days Kapomis Training”, organized by municipality. Which has helped them in organized agricultural production. Mentorship program has helped mentees to enhance their skills and capacities through participation in training and capacity building programs in topics related to women’s legal rights, property right,agricultural production, communication skills, office management skills,etc.

Tewa through its grant making unit provided a grant of NRs. 100,000.00 (USD-756.00) to Mahila Janachetana Kendra, Jhapa as part of the grant cycle 2021/2022. Five sewing machines were bought by Mahila Janachetana Kendra through the grant amount which was then handed over to a group of 16 adolescents' girls belonging to Muslim community from Jhapa district. Additionally, an amount of twenty thousand has also been provided to them as seed money. Now they have established their own tailoring shop called "Fulbari Tailors" (Picture 1, Picture 2).

With the tailor shop established, the girls are not only earning income but also reshaping their lifestyles and redefining their limits! The girls shared that previously, their mobility was restricted. Their social and cultural norms restricted women from going beyond household chores. But as they have started earning, they have been able to built trust within their families and community which have enabled them to travel to the places they want. Now there are no restrictions, they are limitless!

Women members have enhanced their strengths and capacitiesin carrying operational activities smoothly.
