ASB Georgia is pleased to invite qualified Georgian and Armenian candidates (future trainers) to participate in Training of Trainers (ToT). As a result of ToT, a pool of trainers will be prepared to train Emergency Medical Team (EMT) representatives in Georgia and Armenia within the “Stronger Together - Cooperative Action to Respond to Cross-border Emergencies” project funded by Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO).
Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund (ASB) is one of the biggest and oldest German aid and welfare organizations with more than one million members. Since its foundation in 1888, ASB has acted as a politically and denominationally independent association. With its first international mission in 1921, the area of foreign aid became an integral part of the organization. Currently, ASB has 11 foreign offices and implementing programs in more than 20 countries. ASB, through its officially registered country office in Georgia, implemented several EU, German and US government-funded projects related to inclusive disaster risk reduction, provision of social services, improvement of economic and livelihood conditions, resocialization of persons in conflict with the law, confidence building, as well as humanitarian assistance to IDPs, conflict-affected population and other vulnerable groups, etc.
