The debates on protection have evolved considerably since the creation of Reach Out. This revised set of training materials reflects many of those debates and includes additions of new modules to better serve humanitarian staff. The Training Kit was developed in consultation with a wide range of humanitarian actors and will provide an important contribution to the humanitarian community's ability to better protect refugees.
The project itself closed on 30 November 2005, providing a legacy of training materials for humanitarian agencies to use and incorporate into their own training programmes and work. The inter-agency process of the Reach Out project has been a truly collaborative one, contributing to the quality of the products and the project's enduring impact.
The full Training Kit is hosted on the website of the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA) and on our website, where they can be downloaded in four languages: Arabic, English, French, and Spanish. It is hoped that the materials in the Reach Out Refugee Protection Training Kit will be used and adapted in order to better enable humanitarian agencies to incorporate refugee protection into their programming.
