Others present for the inauguration included Shri S.P.Ranade, Sr.Trustee, DEIS and Shri Chavan, Director, AIILSG. 

Dr.Wagh gave the outline of the training programme that is scheduled .

Shri Pingle gave NABARD’s VISION behind conducting this Trainers Training . Shri Ranade offered guidance for the three days. Shri Ashok made a passionate appeal to the NGOs present to take up the challenge of development of rural people who are in far flung areas.

CONDUCT OF THE TRAINING SESSIONS: Dr.Wagh took over the sessions. He explained to the participants that for the next three days, they should get into the mind frame of a Secondary/Higher Secondary youth so that they can enjoy the sessions as their eventual beneficiaries will do.
The key is to assume that the trainee is a born entrepreneur, but due to a straight jacketed education aimed at employment , he seems to have forgotten that he is an entrepreneur. So the Trainer has to help the youth to remove the dust of ignorance and help them discover the entrepreneur inside themselves. 
The participants worked in groups , with Group names, for the three days. The idea was to install a sense of leadership and team-work in them.
The training built upon the knowledge base through lessons on :
• Enterprise Skills 
• Role of Entrepreneur, 
• Business Idea Generation, 
• Marketing, 
• Production, 
• Design, 
• Finance & Accounts etc. 
• PRELIMINARY BUSINESS PLAN, PBP.
Modern technology of multi-media presentations was used to sustain interest. After each activity one or more groups would present their result of discussion on the assignments given for each of the lessons.
On the third day, Trainers took the following practical sessions as part of their training. :
• The Village/Town as an Economic Entity
• Resources of a Region
• Global Trade
• Business Communication
• Human Resources Management.
It may be noted here that each of the lessons could ideally be a six months learning subject at some university course. But here we are targeting Secondary/Higher Secondary/Vocational youth. So the content has been modified to suit their levels and more important , the emphasis is on learning by doing rather than learning by lectures.
This was followed by the CONCLUDING SESSION. Shri P.R.Gaikwad, DGM, NABARD and Shri C.B.Wadekar, graced the concluding session. 
Dr. Wagh gave an overview of the three days training session.
The NAVANKUR (New-Seedling) group presented their business plan as a sample of output of this TRAINERS TRAINING.
