Training aid workers to ensure vulnerable populations are provided with effective aid

Training aid workers to ensure vulnerable populations are provided with effective aid.

As we are firm believers that the quality of humanitarian aid provided to the most vulnerable people depends primarily on the capacities of individuals involved, all our experience and know-how are dedicated to helping them build and improve their capacities.

Training men and women to respond effectively to crises

More than ever, aidworkers need skills to better serve those in need. We offer a wide range of learning and NGO-driven training programmes delivered by experienced humanitarians. There is one for every need: for students, professionals and experienced aid workers alike, in French and in English.

Life-size simulation

Trainees put theory into practice with our practice-oriented trainings. They discover what it is like to work as part of a team on the field during interactive life-size simulations.


of the people we train are on field assignment with top-NGOs after completion of training course.
