Training Extends Knowledge, Increases Impact and Enhances Sustainability

Field Ready sets itself apart by our emphasis on sharing knowledge with practitioners and local populations. We believe that capacity building is central to transforming how aid is delivered and creating sustainability of our programs. Training and knowledge sharing encompasses an array of approaches.

One of the common ways we achieve this is by teaching the use of manufacturing equipment and design tools tailored towards different competencies, as to make it applicable to different competencies and end users. Our trainings are never the same because we work with communities or organizations to address their specific needs. Examples include problem identification, human-centered design, basic and advanced manufacturing techniques.

We are currently field testing a training package we put together with funding from the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and with the help of MAYA Design. This includes a manual that can be used wherever Field Ready works. As we progress, this will be used to introduce local makers and aid workers to the basics of design and manufacturing. The impact of this will be extended through training of trainers (ToT) wherever possible.

In the past year, we reached more than 600 people through our training. We have many plans for training and engaging with a variety of organizations and people. This week alone we have facilitated training sessions in Turkey and South Sudan. In Turkey, we trained 10 people involved in various aspects of response and reconstruction. In South Sudan, Field Ready introduced selected topics in making at the jHUB maker space in Juba.
