The Sphere Project Training Modules

Sphere is based on two core beliefs: first, that all possible steps should be taken to alleviate human suffering arising out of calamity and conflict, and second, that those affected by disaster have a right to life with dignity and therefore a right to assistance.

Sphere is three things: a handbook, a broad process of collaboration and an expression of commitment to quality and accountability.

During 2004 the handbook was deeply revised and updated and a Training Program was “developed to help practitioners learn how to apply the Sphere handbook in their work”, i.e. to help training of trainers in the Sphere Project issues.
