40 volunteers trained on survivor-led response for Marawi Crisis

A two-day orientation on facilitating survivor/community-led response (SLR) in disaster management was conducted recently for 40 volunteers in Iligan city.

The training, attended mostly by women and youth, aimed at capacitating them on how to help internally displaced persons (IDPs) using the framework and methodologies on survivor-led disaster management.

The training was initiated by EcoWEB with Local to Global Protection (L2GP). It is supported by Christian Aid.

Justin Corbett, lead researcher of L2GP, was the resource person.

Following the orientation, a guided on-the-job training was done.

The volunteers with EcoWEB staff facilitated the Participatory Action Learning in Crisis (PALC) process which enabled home/community-based IDPs in Upper Hinaplanon (Iligan City) to prepare their own proposals to address their immediate needs.
