How to deal with corruption during your stay aboard? What if you encounter a medical issue in a remote area? How to keep your tension under control when being mugged? What is your strategy when being abducted? This – and more – you will learn during the NGO safety and security training.
For employees of NGOs travelling in urban and remote areas. The training is suitable both for people who go on short trips, and people who remain abroad for longer periods of time.
Duration of the training:
3 days, including overnight stay
Objective of the training:
The goal of this training is to increase your personal safety during travel. After the training, you will be more aware of risks, know better how to avoid them, and you will have learned to deal with high-risk situations in remote areas.
Content of the training:
Risk analysis and travel preparation: You learn to make a risk analysis of the travel destination. How do you align your behavior with the local customs and situation? Which preparations do you need to make?
Preparing a context analysis of your work area: Here they will focus on the local context of your area of work and learn to assess the specific risks of your stay. Together, Forth Global analyse whether the mission of your organisation and the local situation may conflict.
How will the local population respond when, for instance, you work for a Christian organisation in a predominantly Islamic area?
Dealing with low levels of aggression and crime: You learn how to deal with common ‘low levels’ of aggression and crime. For example what to do with a pushy taxi driver, a beggar or a tenacious street vendor. In the training, you learn where your boundaries are and how to make those boundaries clear, without aggravating the situation.
Dealing with medical emergencies: In the areas where you travel, doctors and hospitals are scarce and the quality of medical care is lacking. What to do when you need to apply urgent medical care? For example after a car accident or injuries caused by violence? You learn to stabilise injuries and stop bleeding according to a standard medical protocol.
Module Resilience and Gender: In this module, we will focus on gender-specific risks that men and women encounter during their travels. How do you prepare yourself? What are your boundaries and how do you make sure they will be respected by others?
