A case of a training programme to train officials of NERLP for NERLP’s operation management

This training programme was based on the client i.e. Northeast Rural Livelihood Project (NERLP), Ministry of DoNER’s need to orient its staff on the basic operation process of the organization i.e. livelihood promotion through SHG programmes. It was an assignment where the client had directed SDS to design and conduct the training programs for “Training of Trainers” on Basics of Livelihood” of its project staff s in four states v.i.z. Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura and Sikkim in 2015. (NERLP is implementing the World Bank Supported North East Rural Livelihood Project (NERLP), operating in 11 districts across 4 states as mentioned above.) SDS had conducted these trainings on development of business ideas among the NERLP implementation team members to help them realize of the business potential of the livelihood connected with SHG women’s household, which were targeted to bring on successful livelihood interventions.
Target beneficiaries were trained to realize the poverty cycle, the debt traps, shocks & vulnerabilities, risk and coping mechanism associated with various rural livelihoods in their operation context and also were trained to bring on intervention to mitigate the same risk factors by diversifying the options to the vulnerable ones. The training involved of all three stages like pre training readiness, exposure visits, class room sessions, and post training follow up with assignments clubbed with KRA and KPI of trainees. The targeted 338 officials were trained as a master trainer, each of whom would in turn had trained 100 Community Service Provider (CSP). Each CSP in the due course had trained 100 SHG women on an average, thus this programme impacted the life of 3380000 SHG women and their family members. These 338 officials were trained as a change agent in bringing a transformation in the livelihood of this many families and helping people to move away from the debt cycle and the poverty trap. This was the expectation of the client for its staff in its operations.
