Humanitarian Education

One of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent movement’s core areas of work is promoting humanitarian values. The Singapore Red Cross Academy’s Centre for Humanitarian Education (CHE) brings greater awareness to the complex humanitarian challenges in the world today. We offer a variety of programmes and courses that equip the community with the skills and knowledge to address these contemporary issues and build community resilience locally and overseas.

Our flagship Overseas Disaster Deployment Training (ODDT) equips committed volunteers with the skills to deliver humanitarian aid and relief efforts on overseas disaster missions.

CHE also conducts a range of programmes aimed at building community resilience through knowledge and skills-based courses that enable individuals and societal groups to be able and confident to provide assistance and care to the vulnerable segments of the community, such as at-risk youth, seniors and the elderly. CHE also provides  training to organisations, corporations, public agencies and community groups.
