About The Sphere Project

The Sphere Project is a voluntary initiative that brings a wide range of humanitarian agencies together around a common aim - to improve the quality of humanitarian assistance and the accountability of humanitarian actors to their constituents, donors and affected populations. The Sphere Project training is designed to give the participants a significant understanding of the Minimum Standards in the key life-saving areas as outlined in The Sphere Project Handbook. These standards are recognized on a global scale and training in them will enable organizations in the future to better implement and work with partners worldwide."
