Introduction   :

Success of any community based programme is substantially dependent on the capacity of staff engaged in programme implementation. In poverty reduction programme, this becomes one of the key success parameters. Since 20013, National Rural Livelihoods Mission has  expanded to every state in India. Continuing with  intensive operation under NRLM, Jharkhand has become one of the leading NRLM compliant states.  JSLPS, the implementing agency of NRLM in the state, has established its operational units at state, district and block level and deputed more than 600 professional and para-professional staff there to work on the ground. While working through operational units, JSLSP has also supported community institutions (SHGs and their federations) to create community professional cadres and get their support for implementation on mission mode. At present around 2000 such community professionals are working in the field. JSLPS has observed that the community professionals and frontline staff of JSLPS, especially at sub block and village level, have limited exposure of trainings which is essential to support NRLM operations in the field. Hence, after assessing the current situation, it is evident that a lot of human resources requires intensive knowledge of poverty reduction approaches and practical skills to extend need based assistance to community institutions.

Brief description of the Program or scheme   :

e- Learning course on “Management of SHG and its Federations” is an innovation for community professionals and community cadres like Active women (AW), Book Keepers (BK), Master Book Keepers (MBK), community coordinators (CC), Community Resource Persons   ( CRP), Personal Resource Person(PRP), Bank Sakhi(BS), Field Training Coordinators (FTC), Ajeewika Krishi Mitra (AKM) etc. who plays vital role in program implementation in the field. The objective of this course is to enhance knowledge to understand and apply different rural poverty reduction approaches in the state; and develop skills among them to successfully support the management operation of community based institutions primarily the SHGs, Village Organisations and further federal aggregations. it is expected that JSLPS will have a well-trained cadre of field staffs and community professionals applying knowledge and skills to implement the NRLM and other poverty reduction programmes. This course will also set a mile stone for other organizations who are directly or indirectly working among SHGs and its federations for eradicating poverty

Benefits provided under the scheme   :

With the prolific growth of SHG federations there is a huge demand for trained professionals to increase the effectiveness, performance as well as credibility of community based institutions. It is this unfulfilled need of the development sector in general and SHG and federations in particular that Chaitanya launched two courses in partnership with TISS in the year 2012 for management of Community based micro finance institutions.  Chaitanya now proposes to collaborate with JSLPS to provide low cost trainings through E-learning mode for the rural youth to be immediately employed with a development perspective and belief in change.
