Travel Safety for NGO’s

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Introduction

Across the globe Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) are saving lives and supporting people in poor and fragile countries. Reaching out to communities and delivering aid programmes can mean moving far beyond your compound or  headquarters  and this type of exposure presents its own risks. Operating in an increasingly unpredictable environment, whether from a security, climatic or natural disaster context or all of the above, is not only high risk but stressful. Preparedness, awareness and avoidance techniques help to minimise those threats, increases confidence and contributes to reducing that stress.

NGO -1

The course provides essential skills for travelling and operating in high risk environments.

A 1 Day Basic Life Support First Aid package can be provided in addition to Travel Safety package highlighted below.
