RedR UK's Sub-Saharan Africa office is pleased to announce the continuation of its ECHO-funded ‘INSO Kenya Security-IV’ project, which launched in June 2016.
INSO (the International NGO Safety Organisation) provides a range of services to NGOs, including incident management, database and security alerts. With INSO's support, RedR is providing security training to organisations working across Kenya, offering courses at all staff levels and covering a range of topics from Driver Safety and Basic First Aid (pictured) to Strategic Security Management.
"RedR acknowledges the long and fruitful working relationship it has had with INSO in Kenya for the last three years," says Sophie Nyokabi, Team Leader in RedR's Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Office. "Through this collaboration, RedR has worked with over 115 local and international organisations to visibly impact more than 130 participants in 2016 alone. This is a great opportunity for RedR to be such a significant catalyst for humanitarian workers and organisations - all thanks to INSO's support. INSO, we could not have achieved this without you!"
To date, twelve training courses have been delivered in six locations across Kenya, reaching 136 trainees. The INSO-IV project will run until December 2016, by which point RedR will have trained 380 participants, the majority of whom are national staff.
The INSO-IV project is being implemented with the support of the European Commission - Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO).
