Business Essentials Curriculum

Training

We are excited to be launching a new “Business Essentials” curriculum with our partner, Alternativ Global Entrepreneurs, with over 200 women in our communities in Pakistan.

We will be hosting 5 business trainings with AGE’s business essentials curriculum to over 200 women, of this, 15 will be trained as trainers. We will target two poverty stricken and conflict-ridden communities in the Islamabad Capital Territory and the Punjab.  These are communities where MDF has long standing partnerships, access to safe, free training spaces and women eager to participate.   Our goal is to move women from poverty to opportunity, enabling them to have lifelong economic independence and overall improved quality of life.

The trainings are conducted over a 40-hour week (5 days) and the curriculum model is based on two main beliefs: all people deserve to thrive economically and all people have the ability to direct their destiny with the proper tools. The Business Essentials program, which consists of 16 sessions, is conducted over the course of 30-40 hours. The curriculum is comprised of content meant to touch on the most essential skills necessary to start or improve a small business. Additionally, the program is designed to equip national leaders to manage and monetize the impact long-term in their communities. These local leaders are required to follow up with graduates through consistent mentorship and support.

Due to the business training we will offer we expect to see the following outcomes:

  • Stability in month to month household incomes among the trainees
  • Increased decision making power among the trainees and diversification in who is earning an income in the household
  • The trainees are keeping a budget and savings plan for their homes and their businesses
  • New jobs created by the businesses that are started by trainees
  • An increase in the number of customers the trainees serve
  • Trainees express that they feel like their dreams are attainable and there is hope for the future
  • An increase in the number of the trainees daughters enrolled and attending school
  • The trainees children are kept out of full time labor
  • The trainees girls are not forced into marriage (especially before the age of 18)

Thank you for making this a possibility!
