The humanitarian field is very challenging but equally as rewarding

Project: 6th April 2018

“One of the biggest challenges I have seen so far is the lack of proper technical skills in the sector, organizations are looking to fill critical positions but are struggling to find the proper manpower. The trainee scheme in this regard aiding in closing this gap to an extent by building capacity of entry-level humanitarians, who after the scheme are able to fully dive into the sector and make positive changes. In turn, this then leads to better project implementation ultimately leading to better services to the beneficiaries and allowing more people that are affected to access quality lifesaving services.” says Caroline Cherop Kangogo from Kenya in  this case study.

Caroline Cherop Kangogo was a humanitarian trainee placed at Save the Children East & Southern Africa Regional office deployed yo South Sudan, where there are three projects currently in place – Nutrition, Health and Food For Assets (FFA).
