RedR is an international charity that trains aid workers and provides operational expertise to humanitarian organisations.
We train life-savers. Our training gives people the skills to be ready for, and respond to major disasters like earthquakes, floods, conflict and drought. Our practical training and expert support means that communities won’t be beaten by disasters. We make sure people can get clean water services running again, can prevent a cholera outbreak, know if a building is safe after an earthquake, and know how to put in place measures to enable communities to protect themselves from the impact of a disaster.
Last year we trained 8,050 aid workers in 44 countries, working primarily in developing countries that are prone to, or have been affected by, major natural disasters or conflict. Through our offices in Kenya, Jordan and Sudan and by delivering pop-up courses around the world we are able to respond directly to those communities most in need. We’ve responded to every major disaster in recent years, including the Syrian conflict, the Ebola crisis, floods in Pakistan and the Haiti earthquake.
Citizens are always the first responders to a disaster. That’s why we build the skills of national aid workers working for local organisations in disaster-prone countries. In 2017 79% of our trainees were national staff. Our approach ensures skills remain in-country for the long-term, ready for future disasters.See all Sponsors & Partners
