Humanitarian Operations training re-imagined in Nigeria

Participants at the Humanitarian Operations training April 2023

The Humanitarian Leadership Academy on the request of Save the Children (SC) Nigeria co-created and co-delivered training to SC staff and partners from April 25 to 27.

“The facilitators took ample time to explain each slide in details, especially for the sessions on Accountability, Rapid Needs Assessment, Diseases Outbreak and Natural disaster, even the groupwork was awesome.”

Humanitarian operations in Nigeria are expanding rapidly with many Save the Children Nigeria staff engaging and working on development programs. The HLA developed and delivered an introduction to Humanitarian Operations (HOP) training to 31 colleagues and partners in SC Nigeria. This will help ensure a smooth and sustainable transition for the country program, and is in line with HLA’s goal of promoting localised leadership.

The training which took place in Maiduguri, Borno state in the northeastern region of Nigeria was a blended learning residential training with some sessions delivered online by SCI regional humanitarian experts.

«The training was an opportunity for Nigeria Emergency Response Team (ERT) to learn and reflect on Humanitarian Operation with topics related to Humanitarian Standards, gender equality, theory of change, centrality of Protection and Refugees Rights. The training was successful thanks to the high-level collaboration between national, regional, and international humanitarian experts»
Amr Kamel, HLA Learning Solutions Specialist who led the training

The training equipped the Nigerian Emergency Response Team (ERT) with a comprehensive introduction to technical areas and support functions within the humanitarian sector, demonstrating how they collaborate to deliver a high-quality response. Additionally, it aimed to cultivate the necessary behaviors, knowledge, and skills required to operate effectively during the initial phase of an emergency response.
