SELCO Foundation seeks to inspire and implement sustainable energy driven solutions that alleviate poverty. These sustainable energy driven solutions inclusive of energy efficiency and green built environments are aimed at improving quality of life and livelihoods. SELCO firmly believes that an end- user centric, demand driven approach that focuses on ecosystem building, leads to interventions that are long-term and replicable. As one of the priority sectors, SELCO Foundation is actively integrating sustainable energy driven solutions for challenges in the agriculture sector for commodity value chains such as rice, millets, spices, tomato, potato and other horticulture produce. The goal is to develop sustainable energy solutions across these agricultural value chains in order to increase food security, diversify farm incomes and reduce drudgery across processes for on-farm technology, post-harvest processing & value addition. Specifically, looking at technologies that bring about value among small marginal farmers and entrepreneurs, FPOs, FPC's, SHGs and other stakeholders. In this regard, SELCO seeks consultancy services to develop a training module with detailed curriculum for training stakeholders on Production, processing and value addition in millet value chain.
The ‘International Year of Millets 2023’, as declared by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), is an opportunity to represent the extensive scope within the Millet value chain at a global level. As we approach the coming year, SELCO Foundation strives to build a holistic and robust ecosystem around every nodal point within the millet value chain; which can cater to the needs of small and marginalized farming communities within India as well as set a precedent for global sectoral sustainability. The aim of the project is to develop the training module with a comprehensive training curriculum to train community-based organizations as well as individual farmers.
The objective of the training module development is to provide knowledge and skills to individuals or groups involved in decentralized millet processing on the different stages involved in processing millet such as Processing, O&M, effective business planning & branding and marketing.
Under this work the consultant/agency is expected to develop training modules, and training tools (PPT, Posters, IEC) for the following.
The agency/consultant will undertake the following:
Based on the learning objectives, design the content for the training module. Use of multimedia, case studies, and interactive activities can help to make the training more effective and engaging.
*This draft ToC is a basic outline, each chapter is expected to cover all the sub themes within the enlisted contents
*Contents mentioned are not restricted to the above components and need to be further elaborated upon
2. Training deck / ppt - 1
3. Training handouts
