Our approach to training

We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. We adapt to the precise needs and skill levels of trainees with a prior evaluation of their use of online resources and tools, information literacy, needs, priorities, and objectives.

Our approach to training is very practical, dynamic and interactive, based on concrete examples, group discussions and exercises that are directly related to the trainees’ field of work. It is delivered on location, preferably to small groups, for maximum impact, using the equipment that trainees are used to. To consolidate learning outcomes, we offer to follow up with time-limited remote coaching (using email and Skype).

During missions in aid recipient countries, we commit to train local trainers and build the capacity of young talents to spread knowledge in local languages to access and use aid information for change. To reach out to a larger community and encourage open discussions on aid transparency and accountability, we also commit to freely sharing lessons learned and useful resources on this website and other channels.

Our approach to advocacy and accountability is one that favours collaboration (learn more). We strive to promote long-term linkages and cooperation between local civil society, journalists and aid professionals to improve aid efficiency.
