ENHAnce humanitarian learning program starts in Bangladesh; applications open in Niger
Published on 3 April 2012
Expanding National Humanitarian Ability (ENHAnce) is an initiative to build the capacity of national staff in multiple agencies, implemented by the ECB Project. ENHAnce replicates the learning programmes which were successfully piloted by the Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies (CBHA) in 2011.
The learning journeys of 41 participants have already begun at the residential workshops being run in Bangladesh and will last throughout the first two weeks of April. The dynamic and interactive events on Core Skills and Management & Leadership Skills have attracted humanitarian professionals from international NGOs including ACF, CARE, Concern Worldwide, HelpAge, Islamic Relief, Muslim Aid, Oxfam, Save the Children, World Concern and World Vision.
In addition, there are 12 participants from national NGOs, whose costs are subsidised either by INGO partners or by The Directorate General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO), the largest donor for ENHAnce.
Meanwhile, potential participants can still apply for the ENHAnce events in Niger until the 6th of April. Staff from any agency in the region are invited to apply for the program, which has already met with enthusiastic support from the staff of ECB Project member agencies.
Participants in either the Core Skills or Management & Leadership Skills training programs will have the opportunity to take advantage of 3- to 4-day workshops; 1-to-1 coaching sessions; self-directed learning; buddy groups and an emergency simulation.
The Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS), with support from ECB agencies and other stakeholders, under the overall coordination of the Humanitarian Country Task Team (HCTT), is in the process of organizing a joint needs assessment (JNA) in Bangladesh. The JNA will take place in the three affected districts of Patuakhali, Barguna and Bhola, following the impact of cyclone Mahasen. Read more
