The digital learning content provided at Kasturi is based on the foundation of Feminine Leadership – a powerful, emergent body of work that is gaining ground around the world. The content seeks to turn the learner, the Kalyaani, within herself to access the best of her potential. Towards this end, proven processes and tools drawn from a treasure of sources including conscious leadership, emotional competence, neuro-linguistic programming, appreciative inquiry, non-violent communication, etc. have been brought together. These are woven into short micro-learning modules followed by reflective exercises for the learner to deepen her learning and application, particularly in the context of agri-enterprise.
Aside from an application processing fee, our self-paced digital learning modules are free for all approved Kalyaanies at the moment, with the hope that the learning gets shared in their communities and together we co-create sustainable, conscious agricultural and economic practices.
Kalyaani, in Hindi (the national language of India), means one that can bring about positive transformation. We believe all women have this power, and through Kasturi, hope that women particularly in the agriculture sector around the world, tap into their power more consciously to heal and sustain our planet. Therefore, the first of the digital learning interventions titled ‘I am Kalyaani’, enables her to deepen her roots, even as she stretches her wings. Here is a high-level overview of the learning design for this intervention:
