Update project Shepherd, March 2010

9-Mar-2010    Hatim Baheranwala, former employee of SPF Beheer and currently self employed in India, has been selected as project leader for the Shepherd project in India. The P&D Network will visit Shepherd in April, in order to find a way which allows Shepherd’s pension scheme to operate sustainable in the long run.

The schemes’ current financial structure does not allow Shepherd to cover all management expenses.  The P&D Network will assist in developing a model to scale up the scheme in a sustainable way and increase the participation of rural households. In addition, the P&D Network will, together with Shepherd, set up programmes that focus on increasing the pension literacy and access for rural households.
