What we do

By cooperating with selected humanitarian aid workers and other experts with huge conflict and post-conflict experience, Humanitrain's programs, bespoke and otherwise are specifically designed with one clear and achievable aim; to improve safety and security of clients as they conduct their business. This is done by obtaining a firm understanding of the types of environments and situations encountered and designing programs with clear aims and objectives.

Training programs can either augment existing programs, supporting security officers already in place, or in the case of smaller organisations, to create a security and safety package. Each training program is tailor made to fit the needs of the organisation and is definitely not the ‘one size fits all’ approach. To see available modules, click here.

Humanitrain's programs are relevant and adapted to suit the needs of the clients, be they national staff guards, drivers, field, technical staff or international staff, specialists, medics, administrators, engineers, or managers.

Humanitrain offers peace of mind, that everything possible has been done to give the best possible training to those in harms way in an effort to reduce their risk and if the worst should happen, prepare them to survive and come through it in the best shape possible.

Humanitrain's contribution helps staff to conduct their mission safely, resulting in better programming for the most vulnerable.

A follow-up and evaluation service is available, making Humanitrain a good-value, no frills, professional organisation.
