Successful implementation of our interactive and East Africa specific online training!
Our project “Phase 2 – Leave no one behind!” promotes the inclusion of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action. We are using the global Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines on the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action to help humanitarian actors to better understand the human rights-based approach to disability in their work.
We provide interactive online trainings, seminars and more.
After the completion of our East Africa-specific online training “Disability-Inclusive Project Cycle Management of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action”, we were able to produce a comprehensive evaluation report thanks to feedback from participants. In the following, you find a brief summary of the training and key findings:
The project team realised the 4-day online training for staff members of predominantly local partners of German non-governmental organisations in the East African region, e.g. Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia. For the participants, who are mainly employed in project and programme management, we covered the following topics in our training agenda
- Introduction to Disability and Inclusive Humanitarian Action
- Inclusive Assessments
- Inclusive Project Planning and Design
- Inclusive Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEAL)
In the predominantly positive feedback, the interactivity and the open space for questions and comments were particularly praised. The participants were especially enriched by the development of the content within group work and with interactive software. This gave them the opportunity to apply what they had learned and to exchange about their experiences.
The evaluation also showed that all participants considered it very likely that they would take a more inclusive approach for future and existing projects. We took up constructive feedback regarding the registration process and general technical aspects for the planning of the next trainings.
“It was the most interactive virtual training I have ever participated in. Keep up the great work.”Participant
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all participants for their interest and feedback!
The summary of the evaluation report is available here.

The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office (AA) and carried out together with the Christoffel Blindenmission e.V. (CBM) and the Institute for International Law of Peace and Humanitarian Law (IFHV) at the Ruhr-University Bochum.
