The strategic planning and social enterprise training with Mera Maan team helped us to better understand our own mandate and objectives, potential and scope of our project, and our strengths and limitations. Our entire project came together beautifully, with a robust business plan and clear and actionable pathways.
We worked successfully with Mera Maan for a project delivered to the World Bank in Afghanistan, whereby we jointly designed financial management, accounting and reporting mechanism and carried out training sessions organized off-site in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. We found Mera Maan Excellent in what they do, very professional, responsive and thorough in service delivery, just what a client looks for. There were times in project where client / beneficiaries demands required to work beyond defined scope of work but Mera Maan fully supported to ensure it is a swift delivery, which then resulted in multiple follow up projects for the EY.
Ms Shahnaz Kapadia, and her Mera Maan team, conducted for us a market study related to the demand and supply of Menstrual Hygiene Management products in rural communities. The Study report gave us an insight regarding the planning of training of social entrepreneurs, and collaboration with different stakeholders to address the highlighted issues. We found the Mera Maan team to be highly professional, responsive, efficient and innovative. We are grateful to Mera Maan team members for their amazing work and facilitation.
Madam Shahnaz Kapadia and her organization Mera Maan have been our preferred training and capacity building partners since many years. Their passion, enthusiasm and commitment to inspiring transformation create lasting impact in our beneficiary communities' personal as well as professional lives. Their programs' expertise lies in amalgamating actual application of material and ideas, theory and practice, and the activities based learning leaves you motivated for more. We would like to continue our partnership with Mera Maan and would highly recommend them to future clients.
Working with Mera Maan has been a distinguished experience in itself. For WaterAid, Mera Maan has crafted the Menstural Hygiene Management (MHM) tools, manuals, training, and techniques, which are not only recognised by WaterAid Pakistan and International, but also by government departments. This Program has given a boost to WaterAid's MHM movement in Pakistan. The zeal and enthusiasm that Shahnaz Kapadia puts in her master trainers’ is comendable. She and her team delivers excellent quality of large scale rollouts in a short span of time. It is always pleasure working with Mera Maan.
