In total, we used our expertise to train 577 people, 98% of whom were Philippine nationals, working for international NGOs such as Save the Children and Oxfam, national organisations and government bodies.
We also created training for UNICEF, in partnership with Relief International, and ran sessions for clusters - the groups set up to enable all relief and aid groups to exchange information and skills.
This has ensured those people affected by the typhoon have the skills and abilities to rebuild their homes and their lives, and made sure that knowledge remains in the Philippines, to be used to mitigate against, and respond to, the next disaster.
Vikas Goyal, our Philippines’ response team leader, explained: "There are a large number of international and local organisations, and government bodies, ready to deliver the aid in water and sanitation, shelter and disaster risk reduction that the Philippines needs.
And many people have volunteered to help their communities and others recover. But many of them are either new to the humanitarian sector, or have not worked in this kind of an emergency before.
We provided those people with the expertise and skills they needed to help their country recover from the devastation of Haiyan."
We designed 'Build Back Safer' training for Oxfam and its Philippines-based partner Green Mindanao, after the communities around Palo requested skills-based sessions.
The course has trained Philippines nationals how to build more resilient housing and community buildings - and to train them to pass those skills on to others.
It was attended by 16 people, who will now train 3,000 - 5,000 households to reconstruct their homes to help them stand up better to future disasters.
Kenneth said: "It has enabled me to give ideas to the people in how to build back better."
