A new beginning for Mrigakshi
Mrigakshi Chakravarty, a fellow at SeSTA received training on group processes, SHG formation and its steps, livelihood training, training on INRM and NREGS, and gender training. Thanks to her training, Mrigakshi could help groom Majima Khatun, Baguan Kathalbari, Gaon Panchayat,as a Krishi Sakhi. Mrigakshi trained Majima about the processes of working in groups and also understanding the group dynamics. With this knowledge Majima was able to motivate women farmers to carry out better practices of farming. Mrigakshi also imparted livelihood training to Majima among other important things. As a result of this training and grooming Majima became more comfortable and confident to work with the community and she is also evolving in the process of growing as a leader day by day.

About The Program
What the beneficiary gets
This programme aims at covering the stipend of the Executive Trainees of SeSTA. SeSTA has two verticals to their programs, leadership programs for the educated youth of North East India(Executive Trainees - ETs) and empowering poor rural women through livelihood activities via Self Help Groups (SHGs).
The ETs are hired through college/university campuses of North East. These ETs are mentored by Executives. They work as field officers who run awareness campaigns in the communities, building trust amongst the people, and also influencing the women in the communities to create SHGs. The ETs are supported by the Executives to help with the activation of SHGs too along with creation of SHGs.
The ETs are assigned on the field for a period of 1 year, usually from April to March. Every ET is paid Rs.13000 and travel cost which are up to Rs.2500/ET.
A very target oriented approach is undertaken by SeSTA and the monitoring and evaluation of these ETs is done on the basis of the targets achieved. There is an Executive managing trainees who makes sure that the implementation is done along with the growth of these Ets.
