Jane commented on ResiliencEngage: Human to Human, in the Field.

Hello Isaac,
Thank you for reading our work and for your comment! Yes, we will be piloting ResiliencEngage with MSF (Doctors Without Borders) South Africa, slated for early Spring 2020. We have so many ideas of where this could really make a difference and all of the different ways in which it can be used. We would love to hear any thoughts you have on that. We are very much looking forward to seeing it in action!

Hello Mahmoud! Thank you so much for this essential feedback. Our group has been grappling with the expressions of power, equity, race and racism, and the divisions between cultures and global perspective in humanitarian work today. We see the Bridge Builder Challenge in particular as an opportunity to integrate these urgent questions and issues into our program design by starting from the experience of displaced people, and the dynamics they have encountered with those working to support them. By interviewing those who have been displaced, we will be more able to understand the specific ways that Humanitarian Aid Workers must be supported, in order to improve the quality of the work they do with displaced communities and individuals.

We will maintain imbalances of power as an ongoing theme in our programming and will also develop a training module that will specifically address the issues of power, privilege, race and racism. We would value the opportunity to continue to learn from, and collaborate with, community members as we develop these elements of the ResilencEngage. Thank you for your feedback! We hope to continue the conversation.
