On November 8 and 9, 2016 a two days training on financial education was organised at Disha Training Centre. 24 workers participated in it. The training started with a motivational song.
Speaking on the objectives of the training, programme coordinator P Ram said that you will be trained how to save, how to maintain savings, financial upkeep and information about banks so that you can emerge as a master trainer and then could train women from self-help groups on the same issue.
Resource person Mohan Raja, financial education department, Saharanpur informed about financial inclusion and said that under financial inclusion everyone should have a bank account and there should be a bank/business correspondence model on every 5000 populace.
