Launch of New E-Learning Course on Disability Inclusive CVA

News | June 24, 2024

We are excited to announce the launch of our pioneering e-learning course on Disability Inclusive Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA). Developed in collaboration with the African Disability Forum (ADF) and the CALP Network, this course aims to make humanitarian aid more inclusive and equitable.

Disability inclusion in CVA is not just about accessibility; it is about ensuring meaningful participation and empowerment of persons with disabilities. The course addresses a critical gap in humanitarian training by focusing on the specific challenges and barriers that persons with disabilities face and promoting their active involvement in CVA programs.

Designed for humanitarian practitioners, this learning experience goes beyond traditional formats. It blends theoretical knowledge with interactive learning challenges and advice from experts in the field. The problem-based approach immerses learners in a simulated scenario set in Turkana, Kenya, where they assume the role of a project advisor to identify and improve areas where CVA projects failed to consider persons with disabilities.

Divided into five modules, the course covers key actions for inclusive CVA: inclusive assessments, targeting, extra costs, accessible cash delivery, and inclusive data collection and monitoring.

It is available for free on the CALP Learning Hub on Kaya Connect, allowing humanitarian workers worldwide to benefit from this valuable resource. It is self-paced, providing flexibility for learners to complete it at their convenience.

The course is more than a training program; it’s a commitment to inclusive humanitarian action. By addressing the barriers faced by persons with disabilities, we can create more effective and inclusive CVA programs for everyone.

We invite all humanitarian practitioners to enroll in this course and join us in our mission to ensure that humanitarian aid leaves no one behind. Enhance your skills in disability-inclusive CVA and contribute to a more inclusive humanitarian response.

Let’s work together for inclusive humanitarian action. Enroll today and be part of the change!
