Centre for Safety helps prepare NGOs, humanitarian aid organizations and their staff for their invaluable work across the world. Through intense training courses, Centre for Safety gives compassionate humanitarians ways and means to operate appropriately under the often dangerous conditions that they work in.Centre for Safety, helping NGOs since 2004“When we started thirteen years ago, we were calling up NGOs to suggest they should practice safety,” Ebe Brons tells Raptim Humanitarian Travel. He co-founded Centre for Safety back in 2004, and he is its current CEO. “Back then, NGOs thought it was a ridiculous idea to learn how to deal with dangerous situations. It was not integrated into their systems at all.”Nowadays, Ebe notices that the landscape has made a 180 degrees turn.” There is practically no NGO left that does not work on safety. Every humanitarian worker going abroad is educated.” Aside from duty of care, Ebe has another theory why safety is being taken much more seriously these days.“Personally, I think it’s because families at home used to believe that being a humanitarian was simply a great adventure. However, through the years, more and more family members read news stories about terrible things that happen in those remote locations. So now, with NGOs taking safety very seriously, it transcends trust to humanitarian’s families.”Centre for Safety is a Netherlands-based foundation specialized in providing aid worker training, NGO training and field security management training, as well as advice and inform the aid workers. The Foundation gives over a hundred training sessions a year to more than 1,300 aid workers and managers from all around the world.
