The LOYOLA MATHS and FOOD CHEMISTRY Departments friends Nishit H Mehta,Nagarjun.N.T, E.SAJENA EDWIN, Madhan Kumar.M, Amala Immanuel,Navin Kumar.U, NithyaJuliet

Dear friends and Well Wishers of AHM NGO,

On 4rth of December 2014 , 

We met friends from Loyola College ,Chennai for their village experience. It is very nice meeting from the department of Maths  and Food Chemistry students. I am wondering how the management accepted to go  and bring the knowledge the  village,Life , social set up and problem. It is indeed the required syllabus for the college students. I congratulate the managements for this program.

I want to share some most impressing moments from the students

1. One student quoted that sir we don't know the separation  in the villages as a "voor"  and "Colony" that our team expressed not in the village it is exist all over the India. May be that student was born and brought up in city.

2. They ask about 100 day (MNRGEA) positive and Negative impact 

3.One Girl from Kerala compares the malnutrition issue for Tamil Nadu and Kerala

4.They express the different between the village and the city

Even though they are from Maths and  food chemistry department they must  have to come and live with this society. Normally social work department will do like this.

To summarize it is a meaningful effort  by the management and the students by the loyolacollege

We wish them all the very best for their future end avers

Women Social enterprise an innovative way for community development in rural areas

 The Different bet ween micro finance system and MSME
Dear friends and well wishers of AHM NGO!
Micro finance is a good system for bottom of pyramid poor people in the world but It has its own limitations. For example Micro finance is good for pro poor  because with that MF system they can survive and fulfill their basic amenities. But there is no inbuilt system to upgrade from MF system into MSME.But AHM NGO has their own system  of tool and strategy  to upgrade to MSME. 
We evaluate successful business model based on two  factors 1. More local Job,2. Create asset. But in the micro finance system , we cant see developmental outcomes. It is only for their survival.  Because this system struck the entrepreneur to be in the MF system but with our innovative tool and intervention we can upgrade a new version of MSME from MF system.
Because in the micro finance system a particular man or family will benefit even they wont think about the growth of the enterprise  and the local job and the asset creation.I want to give you the case study of the business model   
AHM NGO - CHILASA Business Model - Picture 2
 Karpagam, is the women entrepreneur with the big smile and wearing the green sari in the photo.  There is good reason for the smile. Since being selected for AHM NGO - Chilasa’s Small Business Accelerator (SBA), Karpagam has grown the revenue of her micro enterprise 35x, created 5 new jobs in her village, and helped to increase the household income of 100 vegetable producers in her neighbourhood villages . She began with a small plot of land growing her own vegetables, now she is in the distribution business with ambitions to expand even further!
We launched the AHM NGO Chilasa SBA project in 2013 to provide a solution to the problems and limitations of microfinance. Businesses like Karpagam’s cannot grow because microfinance loans are too small, and entrepreneurs need much more than financial support to succeed. Too many entrepreneurs like Karpagam get stuck on the treadmill of subsistence level activities. These enterprises fail to generate employment and economic growth, because the technical, mentoring, and financial support simply does not exist.These business model mobilizes the external resources from Govt. of Tamil Nadu , Women Development corporation.
There are 30 million micro and small enterprises in India like Karpagam’s business, and more than 70% of these have unmet demand for financial and business building support. Helping families and communities lift themselves out of poverty requires that we unleash the potential of small growing businesses.
One of our recent accomplishments has been to establish a pipeline of 10’000 micro and small enterprises that have requested growth finance and business building support. The majority of these require debt financing.
To seize this opportunity I am very pleased to announce the launch of a second round of financing from CSR India fund , Funding agencies , VC, angel investor and donors.
Karpagam is a catalyst of transformation, helping her family and community lift themselves out of poverty. Your support can be the difference between the treadmill or transformation.
If you would like to learn more about our plans to create more local Jobs and Poverty alleviation , and discuss how you or your organization can be involved please contact me for further details.
The amount which you invested in the project are tax exempted as per Indian Income tax act.
Warm Regards,
Arockia raj, Director Programs

The final finding sharing by Mr.John Margue 

The whole team of Animators from 15 villages of Jawahdi hills

Dear friends and well wishers of AHM NGO!

                                                                            As you know Jawhadi hills are under developed Tribal belt that as unique cultural bindings  and values in the world. We have taken the following tribal villages as a sample survey with our Animators veerapanoor - Mr.Murugadoss , Kumpalamarathoor - Mr.V.P.Barnabass, Kattiyan kudesai - Mr.Johnsoundarajan,Veppakuppam - Mr.John Margu, Alleri village- Mr.John Margu,SinthalorMr.K.Manikkam,Puliyur-Mr.Stephen,Athukkanur - Mr.Manickam,Vasanthapur -  ,Kaavaloor,Kundalathoor - Mr.John Newton,Thoppoor _ Mr.Balaji ,Velamuchi - Mr.Stephen,

Key findings

                     Normally 99% of their needs are their basic rights like food, Shelter and  drinking water, Open defecation toilet , Forest product pricing . But all this problem will be solved by the local administrations and CBOs. 

But we found that still there is a technology gap is there. Before six years we found there is no cellphone signals but now we easily access all the cell phone signals. But there is no computer center and browsing center to access. Online marketing can be applicable here to sell their forest products. 

AHM findings and plans

                                                              We want to establish one computer centre and browsing centre. we want to collect nominal fees for that because we have a donor to donate 10 computers but we want another donors for room rent and computer teacher salary for one year.If any body want to donate you are most welcome and call us +919443596715 (Arockia Raj)and mail us : We want to thank our IRGM NGO partner Mr.Samuel make it possible.

What is a Social Entrepreneur

What is a Social Entrepreneur

A social entrepreneur is an individual who applies business and management skills to tackle chronic societal problems with sustainable solutions. In David Bornstein’s words, “Social entrepreneurs are path breakers with a powerful new idea, who combine visionary and real-world problem solving creativity, have a strong moral fibre, and who are ‘totally possessed’ by their vision of change.” Ashoka supports leading social entrepreneurs. We call them Ashoka Fellows.
Rather than leaving societal needs to the government or business sectors, social entrepreneurs find what is not working and solve problems by changing systems, spreading the solutions, and persuading entire societies to take new leaps. Every leading social entrepreneur is a mass recruiter of local changemakers. They are role models proving that citizens who channel their passion into action can do almost anything.
Social entrepreneurs often seem to be “possessed” by their ideas, committing their lives to changing the direction of their field. They are both visionaries and ultimate realists, concerned with the practical implementation of their vision.
Over the past two decades, the citizen sector has discovered what the business sector learned long ago: There is nothing as powerful as a new idea in the hands of a first-class entrepreneur.
 Historical Examples of Leading Social Entrepreneurs
Susan B. Anthony (U.S.): Fought for Women's Rights in the United States, including the right to control property and helped spearhead adoption of the 19th amendment.
Vinoba Bhave (India): Founder and leader of the Land Gift Movement, he caused the redistribution of more than 7,000,000 acres of land to aid India's untouchables and landless.
Mary Montessori (Italy): Developed the Montessori approach to early childhood education.
Florence Nightingale (U.K.): Founder of modern nursing, she established the first school for nurses and fought to improve hospital conditions.
Margaret Sanger (U.S.): Founder of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, she led the movement for family planning efforts around the world.
John Muir (U.S.): Naturalist and conservationist, he established the National Park System in the United States and helped found The Sierra Club - the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.
Jean Monnet (France): Responsible for the reconstruction of the French economy following World War II, including the establishment of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). The ECSC and the European Common Market were direct precursors of the European Union.
