What is the Asian DEP?
The Development Education Program (DEP) is anÂ intensive personal motivation and awareness raisingÂ process that begins with the participation in a fi ve daysÂ residential workshop conducted by the Association ofÂ Asian Confederation of Credit Unions.
The Asian Development Education Program started inÂ 1999. ACCU, after attending the Australian DE ProgramÂ has generated tremendous motivation and obligation toÂ replicate the Australian DEP course in Asia. From 1999Â to 2004, CUFA had supported this endeavor to multiplyÂ the impact to as many Asian credit unions as possible.Â WAW Credit Union in Australia continued to support theÂ Asian DE program from 2005.
The Asian DE program shares the unique experience andÂ culture of Development Educators extending to everyÂ part of Asia Pacifi c and Africa (Australia, Bangladesh,Â Fiji, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia,Â Mauritius, Nepal, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia,Â Cambodia, Hong Kong and Korea). Asian DE programÂ emphasizes on the enhancement of presentation skillsÂ and provides inputs on the burning issues affecting theÂ viability and growth of credit unions. Understanding theÂ development issues will keep the DEs more appreciativeÂ of the value of their jobs as they play an importantÂ role in building strong fi nancial cooperatives for theÂ community. With the support of all members, ACCU isÂ facing a new decade of commitment to offer this uniqueÂ educational and transformational experience for creditÂ union leaders and professionals in Asia through the DEÂ program. From 1999, ACCU has certifi ed 503 DEs. TheyÂ have performed extremely well in their presentations,Â developed self-confi dence, and widened understandingÂ of global credit union system and issues.Â
