During the 3 days in Blaj basic concepts about disaster risk reduction were introduced along with concrete methods for working on a community-level. The training comprised sections of relevant theory and of practical exercises. Through exercises and role playing, participants were made familiar with all necessary techniques and methods to engage with community and to lead a process of community development.
According to participants, this training was very good as it strengthened their confidence in their own ability and capacity to work with communities. “After this training we understand the project. We know what we have to do in the first period of the project, where, when, and with whom,” said Mr. Angel Gyorev, participant from Caritas
Along with the important matters it dealt with, this training was also relevant because it sets a benchmark in the history of Caritas in
Caritas Europa congratulates all Caritas organisations involved in this project, which, according to Mr. Happel, sets a positive example for further replication in different regional contexts.
