Regional Cash Transfer Programming Training Course

[16 May 2018]


From 18-21 April the French Red Cross’s Indian Ocean Regional Intervention Platform (PIROI) held, in partnership with Relief Applications, practical training on the use of Cash Transfer Programming (CTP) in humanitarian emergencies. This course follows on from an introduction to CTP organised by PIROI in 2017, training that was pioneered by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies (IFRC).

Fifteen participants, who are all CTP officers with PIROI-member National Societies, attended the course. Training was given in English and French in order to help facilitate discussion, which was particularly informative on experience-sharing about CTP use in participants’ respective countries.

In addition to revising the basics of Cash Transfer Programming the course also focused on using software, such as Kobo Toolbox, which is designed to collect, sort, and analyse data on smartphones and tablets in the field.

PIROI will organise follow-up training based on participants’ feedback for this course.
