Learner spotlight: Meet Michael

Could you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Michael and I am from Georgia.

I am currently based in Poland, studying for a NOHA (Network on Humanitarian Action) master’s degree at the University of Warsaw.

How did you first find out about our digital learning platform Kaya?

I discovered Kaya when I was looking for e-learning courses a few years ago. I’ve since taken ten courses.

Which is your favourite Kaya course?

Sphere in Practice is one of the best Kaya courses I’ve done! The course gives a very practical insight of Sphere and demonstrates how it can be applied.

Has learning on Kaya changed your outlook or approach to humanitarian work?

Kaya has played a significant role in my understanding of humanitarian work in many ways.

Through courses on the foundations of humanitarian action, I have learned that humanitarian work should be done with humility and a professional attitude. Learning is a constant process in the humanitarian world!

Using Kaya has also helped me with my job search. The knowledge I gained has helped me network with professionals in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) field with confidence, as well as the confidence to apply for M&E jobs.

Have you earned any badges on HPass? If so, which one are you most proud of?

I completed all of the Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning (MEAL) courses of the FIELD programme.

I’m proud of the MEAL complete pathway badge as I’m looking forward to building myself as MEAL specialist.

Practice is the best teacher so never be afraid to make mistakes while applying your knowledge. Additionally, use this valuable knowledge to empower the most vulnerable people and contribute to their resilience.
Michael
