ROLES

Lead Facilitator

Laura Smelter

In this online training program you will gain resources to put principles into practice, engage with coordinated relief efforts, minister to affected populations, and maintain resilience.

This program empowers participants to effectively contribute to global response efforts through knowledge and application of life-saving and dignity-upholding measures as outlined in the “Sphere Handbook: Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response.” Developed by the international response community, the Sphere Handbook puts affected populations and the right to life with dignity at the center of humanitarian response.

Interactive sessions contextualize the Sphere universal minimum standards, key actions, and key indicators and cover four core life-saving areas:
– water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH)
– food security and nutrition
– shelter and settlement
– health

Required resource: Participants are required to have a digital or print copy of The Sphere Handbook 2018, which may be obtained at https://spherestandards.org/handbook-2018/.

Participants will join an online learning community in live interactive sessions according to the following course schedule (tentative – daily topics subject to change based on facilitator availability):
