Participatory Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation of Humanitarian Projects Training (Virtual and Onsite)

Appleton Resort Sports, Road off Mvuli Road, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

The aim of the training is to introduce participants to participatory assessment, monitoring, and evaluation with a specific inclination to humanitarian and social development projects. The training seeks to broaden participants’ understanding on the importance of community involvement in the entire project cycle and the accruing benefits of this as compared to conventional monitoring and evaluation of projects.

Community Based Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience (Virtual and Onsite)

Appleton Resort Sports, Road off Mvuli Road, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

Climate change (CC) threatens progress on development particularly in developing countries because they have the least capacity to cope. Adaptation to climate change in these countries is therefore critical. These adjustments in response to the negative impacts of climate change are necessary as they are locally focused and inexpensive. Adaptation efforts based at the local level address exposure of vulnerable recipients to the adverse impacts of climate change. Community-based climate change adaptation identifies and facilitates local development activities that strengthen the capacity of local people to adapt to the capricious climate. This approach employs participatory processes and disaster risk reduction.

Gender Mainstreaming in Disaster Risk Management

Prideinn Lantana East Church Road, Nairobi, Nairobi, Kenya

The changing nature of emergencies and the increasing number of armed conflicts calls for the harnessing of the capacities of both men and women in the fight towards the realization of increased resilience and coping capacity.

Humanitarian Supply Chains and Logistics Training (Virtually and Onsite)

Appleton Resort Sports, Road off Mvuli Road, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

Humanitarian workers require competent and professional support system that will ensure the right supplies are delivered at the right time and manner to the right location and to the right beneficiaries to alleviate prolonged suffering to survivors. The supply chain is therefore central to effective humanitarian work. This is different for corporate organizations whose bottom line is profit making. To achieve effective humanitarian performance, organizations have invested heavily in supply chain logistics. However, most of the personnel responsible for this critical function in these organizations are not professionally prepared to complement their organizations because they lack humanitarian preparedness background and training and those qualified and experienced are stationed at national offices or headquarters.

Climate Change Adaptation Mainstreaming into Development

Development choices today influence the adaptive capacity of people and their governments well into the future. We cannot afford to delay adaptation planning and action. However, many development policies, plans and projects currently do not take climate change into account due to a lack of awareness and clarity on how to effectively develop and integrate adaptation options.

GIS Application in Disaster Risk Mapping

The changing nature of emergencies and the increasing number of armed conflicts calls for the harnessing of the capacities of both men and women in the fight towards the realization of increased resilience and coping capacity.

Project Needs Assessment Training (Virtually and Onsite)

Gender Mainstreaming in Social Development

Prideinn Lantana East Church Road, Nairobi, Nairobi, Kenya

The training will conclusively handle issues to do with the understanding gender, gender awareness and advocacy, human rights, and gender based violence, gender analysis, integration and gender mainstreaming, leadership and governance and gender budgeting.

GIS application in Project Monitoring and Evaluation Training (Virtual and Onsite)

Appleton Resort Sports, Road off Mvuli Road, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

The integration of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation makes it possible to link, or integrate information that is difficult to associate through any other means. With GIS M&E/Researchers are able to use combinations of mapped variables to build and analyze new variables. Presenting data in the form of a map helps to understand the significance of where, when, and by whom. By using the GIS to link data from multiple programs the training will make it possible to understand the individual programs better but also better understand the relationship between the programs. Spatial analysis techniques will also help with driving outcomes measures.

Child Protection in Emergencies Training (Virtual and Onsite)

Appleton Resort Sports, Road off Mvuli Road, Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

Children, unlike adults, are affected uniquely by conflicts and emergencies, however; they could facilitate quick and lasting recovery of the community. Children find themselves in vulnerable situations during emergencies and bear the greatest brunt of disasters because of their vulnerability. As such, these children are exposed to displacement, separation, discrimination, forced labor, sexual and economic exploitation, trafficking and conflicts.  Child protection measures have to be undertaken from the onset of an emergency to ensure their wellbeing is guarded. To achieve this, professionals working with children have a duty to prevent violence and abuse and to enable children to access protection services through government and community systems.
