Train for Change is a small start-up NGO, that is aiming to contribute to empower local professionals and role models in the amazing work that they do. Train for Change was founded because in area’s where it’s most needed, there is often little to no access for local people to get proper training in the professions they’d love to do to uplift their community. Especially in these parts of the world, Train for Change wants to help close the gap of inequality in access to high quality education and mental health care, which is so critical for disadvantaged children that are born in under-resourced and (post)conflict areas.
That’s why Train for Change is training local (aspiring) professionals in the field of education and mental health, so that they can (continue) to make a change in their community. By providing our trainings and sharing knowledge and skills we hope to contribute for them to be actual changemakers. Whether it’s by providing training in how to be a champion teacher, how to be a mental health coach, how to work in a trauma-supportive way, or how to implement certain interventions. Each and every training is designed to empower local professionals and role models in their day-to-day work, to provide them with hands-on skills and knowledge that they can directly apply to the work they do within their community.
But also, making a change doesn’t happen overnight. You need to train for that change. It takes dedication to reach a certain goal; a goal that you can reach once you have certain assets to make that happen: knowledge, tools, skills, practice and experience. During our trainings, those are the things we hand to dedicated
local role models , that are wanting to make a change in the life of the kids, teenagers or adults they work with.
