Lead Trainer Babar Waseem Views on Mini MBA Training

Lead trainer-Baber Waseem Qureshi from Peace Through prosperity sharing some experiences during the training classes of micro entrepreneurs that is worth reading.
Peace Through Prosperity aims to eliminate poverty and enhance self dependence by providing street hawkers with training, a five day training session named as Mini-MBA followed by coaching and consulting. This course includes all basic and important tools and techniques that are necessary for running a business successfully. I am member of this great cause from 4 years.
I, being lead trainer had a chance to meet many micro entrepreneurs and read their minds. I got many colorful experiences during classes. Reading different thoughts and engaging those different minds to one thought was though tough but I took it as a challenge and did it.
Equipping micro entrepreneurs with knowledge of business means to tell them some of the things that basically they know before but they do not give them importance and some of the tools that they do not know and are new for them. To convince them towards the vital role of such business tools was quite a difficult task.
When these street hawkers take 2 to 3 hours out of their business hours for Mini-MBA class, this means they are putting trust and responsibility on you that these hours of their business will not get wasted.
Sharing of views of street hawkers during the class was a very noticeable and appreciable thing. When people come and talk to you about their problems, you start feeling a part of them. This link that the sharing creates let us know that we have a duty towards the society to contribute positively. As it is said wisely that “If you are not a part of solution then you are a part of problem”
Nothing can hold me back from sharing this that I have learnt many things from the micro entrepreneurs too. Their living, patience, poverty and so makes a person think that how am I contributing towards the society when I am in a position? But my cautious is clear this way.


Field Manager Nasir Shah Experience in Mini MBA Training

My name is Nasir Shah and I am part of Peace through Prosperity and serving as a Team Leader for about 2.5 years. In this 2016 Project we have given training in 11 areas of Karachi, In this training session I got opportunity to learn and explore different experience. In this Mini MBA training I realized that small entrepreneurs of Karachi are working hardly but they don’t have some knowledge about the basic tools of business and the ways they communicate with their customers are very harsh, After Mini MBA classes when beneficiaries appreciate us about the training by complaining that It could have more better if they got this training much before. After attending Mini MBA classes we realized about the basic knowledge of our business, they said now we will put all the effort to become good entrepreneurs. I got so much motivated after hearing this commitment from them. PTP team makes sure them that they are not going to stop their mission until the poverty completely ends in the whole world.

Working for Progress at Peace Through Prosperity – a team members perspective

Ammad PTPHi Everyone! My name is Ammad Aslam. I am 19 years old and joined Peace Through Prosperity in May 2014 and serve as a social media Editor and promoter and software manager when i join Peace Through Prosperity its Facebook page was at 800 something likes but now its on 2500+ I know that’s not a big amount but now a days people don’t want any type of organisation’s post on their feed they want something interesting in their news feed bringing them to like this type of page is a big deal.

But nowadays I have also started working in the field as a field resource person that is very interesting and a steep learning curve for me. I love to travel and explore places and working as a field resource in this age with study is pretty hard but thrilling too with Peace Through Prosperity team i am exploring different places of Karachi which i have never seen before.

The aim and objective of Peace Through Prosperity is to remove poverty, make poor working people financially independent, make our society stronger and more equal for all which sounds good but hard to achieve as well because people of Pakistan is not well educated and don’t have education to do their stuff but they are very hard working. Our mission is to provide them basic education of their work for which we introduced them with a course name as Mini MBA.

The Basic purpose of Mini MBA is to provide education on how you can save money from your small business and you have complete record of what you buy in what cost you and in what cost you sell it and how much money you earn from it. From this education we educate them not to overspend or waste their money.

I am going to be sharing my views with everyone on this blog from now on, thank you for reading.
