KAMPALA/JINJA-UGANDA RESIDENTIAL SESSION

6 - 16 December 2020

Thanks to our partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières, the course provides the opportunity to attend a residential session in Kampala/Jinja, Uganda. This residential course brings all participants together for two weeks to work in situ on strategy design and programme development for and with the local NGO Omoana House.

The course programme has been developed in partnership with some of the largest humanitarian organizations in the sector.

The residential session is the key element in the middle of the course that allows building up not only knowledge, competencies and hard skills, but also the soft skills - teamwork, adaptability, interpersonal skills, and so on – which are essential in the humanitarian sector. 

Find out more about the two residential weeks that took place in 2019.
