What is the Asian DEP?

The Development Education Program (DEP) is an intensive personal motivation and awareness raising process that begins with the participation in a fi ve days residential workshop conducted by the Association of Asian Confederation of Credit Unions.

The Asian Development Education Program started in 1999. ACCU, after attending the Australian DE Program has generated tremendous motivation and obligation to replicate the Australian DEP course in Asia. From 1999 to 2004, CUFA had supported this endeavor to multiply the impact to as many Asian credit unions as possible. WAW Credit Union in Australia continued to support the Asian DE program from 2005.

The Asian DE program shares the unique experience and culture of Development Educators extending to every part of Asia Pacifi c and Africa (Australia, Bangladesh, Fiji, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Mauritius, Nepal, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Korea). Asian DE program emphasizes on the enhancement of presentation skills and provides inputs on the burning issues affecting the viability and growth of credit unions. Understanding the development issues will keep the DEs more appreciative of the value of their jobs as they play an important role in building strong fi nancial cooperatives for the community. With the support of all members, ACCU is facing a new decade of commitment to offer this unique educational and transformational experience for credit union leaders and professionals in Asia through the DE program. From 1999, ACCU has certifi ed 503 DEs. They have performed extremely well in their presentations, developed self-confi dence, and widened understanding of global credit union system and issues.
