Training on SPHERE standards

From the 23rd till the 26th of October Caritas Serbia organized a training on SPHERE standards for the coordinators of Caritas in Serbia.


The trainer was Nina Wöhrmann, expert on SPHERE standards, who presented these standards in four days of training. In the first two days the participants learned more about minimal standards and they were presented with the basic rights of the beneficiaries in humanitarian work. In the last two days the other employees of Caritas also joined the training, to learn more about humanitarian standards, that each organization has to see as its obligation and that have to be fulfilled for a quality work and satisfaction of beneficiaries.


The training was implemented through the study of the book of SPHERE standards, enriched with the active participation of Caritas representatives and their previous experience of field work. The participants showed enthusiasm with the quality of the trainer and the knowledge gained and each one of them received a certificate about the successfully completed training.
