RedR has a training team in in Port-au-Prince who are delivering training to local Haitian staff employed by international NGOs, such as Save the Children, Tearfund, GOAL and many others. The training is designed to develop core skills in key areas such as logistics, water, sanitation, hygiene and security. To date, we have booked over 200 hours of course work and have delivered training to over 300 local staff from 12 different organizations. Requests for training come in daily and we are working hard to meet that demand so that our vital capacity building work can continue.
The training is based on our Disaster Response Support Service. Our trainers have been delivering on-the-job coaching and short training courses to aid workers in essential disciplines during the early phases of the response so that aid workers are not distracted from their work. As the focus of efforts moves towards recovery and reconstruction, RedR will respond with longer and typically classroom-based courses to meet changing training needs.
Thanks to our donors, our programme is already making a real difference in improving the effectiveness of aid agencies working to rebuild peoples’ lives in Haiti.
