A group of 26 young, enthusiastic students from IIM (Indian Institute of Management), Ahmedabad visited the Urmilla programme last Saturday. The students had prodigious time learning about the Home Manager Programme which identifies the poor unemployed women, trains them as home mangers and finally places them so that they can earn their living.
The students were primarily oriented about the whole program by Belaben Joshi who heads the Urmilla Program. The students also learnt everything about our partner organisation, ‘Empower Pragati’, and the work done by them. There they also had an interactive session with the home managers. They were very pleased to know our policy and the way we deal with this program.
They also interacted with the Relationship Manager who is a mediator between the client and the home mangers and takes care of the home mangers’ rights as well as clients’ satisfaction.
They also visited our clients’ homes and had a Q & A session with the client as well as the home manager who works there. This helped them understand the program better and they got an idea about how successful this program is in terms of client satisfaction, home manger satisfaction and in terms of profit as well.
Later they were further de-briefed by the Executive Director of Saath, Keren Nazareth about the program. Overall, we both had an enlightening experience.
We wholeheartedly thank the IIM students for visiting us and spending their valuable time with us.
