Training Agency: POINT Society
Registration deadline: 28 Nov 2018
Training date: 02 Dec 2018 to 05 Dec 2018
POINT was established by a group of humanitarian workers and its headquarter is in Gaziantep, Turkey. As an organic non-governmental organization, the co-founders of PONT realized the crucial capacity gaps and needs for the civil society and communities to play a greater role in improving the response to the humanitarian crisis and better contribute to the stabilization of their conflict-affected country. POINT provides capacity development to the local civil society and communities actors as well as local staff in INGOs. This is in order to strengthen their voice, increase their impact and bring about the development of diverse, inclusive and independent civil society and communities
The Sphere Project establishes and promotes minimum standards by which the global humanitarian community responds to the plight of people affected by disaster or conflict. These standards, which cover life-saving areas of humanitarian response, as well as the common principles on which they are grounded, are set out in the Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response. The Sphere Project aims to anchor humanitarian response in a rights-based and participatory approach. The Humanitarian Charter places the rights of the disaster-affected population to live with dignity, to receive humanitarian assistance and to protection and security at the center of humanitarian response.
SPHERE Training Topics:
- Introduction to SPHERE standards
- The Humanitarian Charter
- Protection Principles
- Core Humanitarian Standards
