What We Do

RedR UK has been operating from Nairobi since 2011, providing capacity-building and technical expertise for humanitarian actors in Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Chad, Madagascar, Somalia, Ethiopia, the Central African Republic (CAR), Rwanda, Senegal, and South Sudan.  

Our programme in the region is in response to the need for local and relevant capacity-building expertise in a context of both acute and prolonged humanitarian crises. We offer both open courses and tailor-made solutions to cater to your particular needs.

Since 2011 we have developed a regional pool of almost 40 highly experienced, professional humanitarian experts and trainers, who are able to provide humanitarian capacity-building and technical expertise in Somali, Kiswahili, French and English.

Context in Kenya || Boosting humanitarian response

With training, there comes a level of emotional preparedness. For me, safety and security start in the mind: if I know I’m well equipped to respond then it makes it easy for me to go into a new environment - even one that's insecure.
