In a world where the role of global (I)NGOs is increasing, the chance of life threatening situations for implementing personnel of UN organizations, aid agencies and other (inter)national non-governmental organizations is on the rise. HDFF understands that these staff members run an ever-greater risk of becoming victims of violence and conflict. Humanitarian work is endangered from various factors including petty crime, politically motivated violence, and war zones. Additional threats can include terrorism, working in restricted environments and natural / man-made disasters including traffic accidents etc. Consequently, being unprepared to act in these environments can jeopardize the continuity of aid operations, prolongs the efficiency and effectiveness of helping those in need and endanger humanitarian workers well being.
HDFFâ€™s Stay Safe- Safety and Security Training addresses the management and security related personnel needs of UN organizations and (inter)national non-governmental organizations in South East Asia and beyond. The trainings are conducted by experienced culturally sensitive facilitators in an utmost participatory way.
