Quality and Accountability capacity building activities to be held in Japan
Church World Service - Asia/Pacific, in collaboration with the Japan NGO Center for International Cooperation (JANIC) and with support from FASID, will organise a number of capacity building activities in Japan with a focus on the orientation and implementation of HAP and Sphere Standards.
The activities will take place from 30 January to 9 February 2012 in Tokyo and Miyagi, Japan.
For the first time, a joint HAP and Sphere Training of Trainers (ToT) will be offered in Japan to create a pool of Japanese trainers who could further promote Quality and Accountability in Japan. International NGOs are encouraged to support their partner agencies to attend the training.
Representants from the Sphere Project, the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) and People In Aid will share their expertise with participants.

"I told staff and volunteers 'we are here because of the cyclone. People are suffering, they are without food and their family members have died, and we are here to reduce their pain. When we go there we should respect their feelings and treat them like a customer'"
