    Our training enables aid workers to be highly competent in an emergency setting. We provide the skills to assess a humanitarian situation and apply big picture solutions. For example, a water and sanitation specialist needs to look not just at environmental health solutions, but also understand other issues such as hygiene promotion and protection implications. We train professional aid workers to see the overall goal of minimising suffering and loss of life.
