The CALP Network has delivered a five-day “Train the Trainers” course in Amman, equipping thirteen people from ten organisations to deliver Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA) training throughout the Middle East and North Africa region.


CVA refers to all humanitarian programs where cash transfers or vouchers are directly provided to crisis affected people. The use of CVA is a positive change within the humanitarian system in recent years, enabling much greater choice and dignity for recipients of aid.


Course leader Ayman Ramsis explains the purpose of the Train the Trainers course: “Having more Arabic-speaking trainers who can deliver its courses will help increase access to CVA training throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. This will result in more training being available, particularly in areas difficult to access”.


Christina Abi Rafeh from the Lebanese Red Cross is taking the course so that she can deliver CVA training more widely in the region, she says, “This is by far one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences I engaged in throughout my career. It is indeed a new door to expand my knowledge in the world of CVA!”


Once the training is complete, course participants will be equipped to deliver CALP’s “Core CVA Skills for Programme Staff” course. Ayman believes the course is very useful for humanitarian staff: “It is suitable for building relevant capacity and common understanding about CVA. It equips organizations to serve the vulnerable and conflict-affected communities in the MENA Region and provide relevant cash and vouchers programs”.


It's worth noting that the CALP Network is a dynamic global network of over 90 organisations engaged in the critical areas of policy, practice and research in humanitarian cash and voucher assistance (CVA) and financial assistance more broadly. Collectively, CALP members deliver the vast majority of humanitarian CVA worldwide.


The Train the Trainers course was organised by the CALP Network and funded by the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO).
