Osman Consulting are conducting a number of trainings in Libya this month as part of our capacity building in the Middle East.
We are very pleased at the CHS training that was delivered on the 17th and 18th of August, in Tripoli, Libya. The two-day course was run in cooperation with the WFP and STACO, and was conducted in Arabic by Osman Consulting trainers Moustafa Osman and Hassan Al Sabeh. The 24 participants came from all over Libya, representing Tripoli, Sabha, Al Katrun, Al Riyayna, Zelten, Al Zawiya, Raqdalin, Awbari and Ghat. Many of them work in the distribution teams with WFP and STACO; there were also two local council representatives and two school principles. The training was focused on the Core Humanitarian Standard for improving the quality and accountability of humanitarian action and covered important humanitarian principles, the nine commitments of the CHS, how to apply them to improve humanitarian response and how to make them relevant and useful in one’s own context. The attendees came out of the training equipped to identify and develop good practices in their own work, and to act as leaders in disseminating their understanding of the CHS and achieving high standards of delivery.
Lead trainer Moustafa Osman observed that the training had come at a crucial time, in which many Libyan people are fleeing their homes to escape the conflict around the capital and in the South.
Osman Consulting would like to say a great thanks to CHS, STACO, WFP, and particularly to those who participated. We are looking forward to conducting further trainings over the next couple of weeks in Libya, and to continuing to expand our knowledge of, network and presence in the country.
