BGR Training Options


The following are the training events BGR can make available to you. These are all tried and true trainings and the skills taught have been effectively used in a variety of cultures, belief systems and peoples. All these are designed to better enable those being trained to access communities through relief and development initiatives.

If you, your church or group are interested in addressing overseas needs such as poverty, hunger and poor health, BGR offers a two to three-day training that teaches the community development process in a participatory setting. Group activities combined with some lecture time will allow participants to learn new tools to be used to enable the community to help themselves. We will introduce and practice various community development tools in small groups and in a field practicum setting. New ideas and resources will be shared from the trainer and trainees experiences. The entire training is based on a Biblical perspective.

Four Basic Training Modules:

Introduction to community development
Community development tools
Community Entry to Exit
Field Practicum

If your organization would like to host one of these trainings, please contact

This two-day training will provide a body of information that will help responders and volunteers better prepare to help those in need after disasters have struck. The more we prepare, the more effectively we will be able to assist those affected by a disaster. The training is designed to utilize classroom instruction and participatory, small group activities and will be led by an experienced disaster responder/trainer. The objective of the training is to produce trained responders who can effectively and efficiently assist a community of disaster survivors and then possibly help that community get on the road to rehabilitation and reduce future vulnerability.

Basic Training Modules:

Biblical Basis for Disaster Response
Disaster Response Basics
Disaster Response Personal and Team Preparation
Disaster Needs Assessment
Disaster Response Team Structure
What to do in a Disaster Response
Distributions
Shelter and NFI
Media Management
Initial Trauma Management

The Sphere Standards are international standards for emergency response that seek to provide quality and accountability to humanitarian response. This five-day training will present the standards through participatory learning, lecture, and structured exercises & case studies. The standards are set out according to the four sets of life-saving activities: water, sanitation & hygiene; food security and nutrition; shelter and non-food items; and health action. This workshop will help you understand and apply these international standards. Those who complete the entirety of the training will receive a certificate of that will be internationally recognized. This is not a substitute for Disaster Response training but is a parallel to it. You can learn more about the Sphere Project at www.sphereproject.org.

Basic Training Modules:

Defining Sphere Standards The Humanitarian Charter and the Rights-based Approach, Protection principles, and The Core standards
Minimum Standards in Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion.
Minimum Standards in Food Security and Nutrition
Minimum Standards in Shelter, Settlement and non-Food Items.
