Localized Gender-Awareness for Humanitarian Trainings

Humanitarian workers and organizations based in Jordan will develop their own community-led simulation designs

Quick facts


21.10.2020 – 20.10.2021


Online implementations in Jordan


Ca. 100 participants


Ca. 4.000

The project aims at training local humanitarian workers in participatory, gender-aware simulation design, followed by a period of coaching and mentoring through the independent design of programmatically relevant simulations as well as through the implementation of the simulations.

Project Groups

This project trains local humanitarian workers on participatory approaches to the basics of simulation design as a tool to communicate local understandings of complex issues. As a result they will be enabled to design, implement, and evaluate their own simulation game formats based on the needs of the community they are working in.

Target Groups

Humanitarian workers and organizations in Jordan 


Phase 1: Online Training Sessions ​ (5 weeks / 10 hours total) ​ x2 cohorts
Phase 2: Participant-Led Simulation Development ​(supported by professional coaches)
Phase 3: Simulation Delivery

Outcomes / Achievements

The project aims to achieve the following outcomes:

  1. Increased access to simulation game training opportunities for local humanitarian organizations in Jordan. 
  2. Enhanced utility, suitability, and feasibility of internally developed simulation games in localized humanitarian training.
