This one-day course is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about cash transfer programming in humanitarian contexts, and will introduce you to the fundamentals of Cash and Voucher Assistance (CVA).

This training will allow participants to:

  • Describe modalities, delivery mechanisms, and different tools for cash transfers
  • Define preconditions for implementation of cash transfers
  • Explain the relevance of cash transfers in different humanitarian contexts and advocate for CVA to a variety of stakeholders

We are running the course in New York, NY, USA on February 28th. It is a face-to-face, classroom-based training, and it will not be possible to participate remotely. This course is also available for delivery via on-line learning at Kaya.
