The phenomenal success of the microfinance and development sector in India needs high-caliber human
capital to consolidate and catalyze the growth story. Capacity-building is an important contributing
factor since it helps in fostering an able and equipped workforce in lines with the evolving needs
of the development sector. Recognizing the need to establish a platform for the development of
professionals, Bandhan established Bandhan School of Development Management (BSDM) in February 2011.
Nestled amidst serene surroundings of nature at Rajpur in South 24 Parganas, the training center is
a 9-km drive from the hubbub of the city. Nature plays an integral role in the shaping of personality
of an individual. The 2.5 acre expanse creates a perfect harmony which harnesses creativity and
innovation in the minds of the trainees and imbues them with requisite practical knowledge.
