FACE Training Program is directly linked to the implementation of the programs.
It aims at ensuring continuous and quality capacity building for FACE teams in order to maintain services quality and remain responsive to changes among FACE target group and direct environment.
FACE believes that training and capacity building of personnel is essential in order to ensure the provision of services of quality.For example, UNICEF/NCCM 2015 study highlights that the lack of child protection services with a qualified workforce (social workers, caregivers…) is a major gap in the child welfare system; the study explains that “children victims of violence, exploitation and neglect in Egypt are in critical need of qualified professionals able to prevent any potential harm and to respond to children in need of care and protection”.
For this reason, important resources are allocated to the training of projects staff.
Since 2013, FACE has reinforced its training capacity and has set up a Training Program, composed of two training units attached to its two programs. 2 groups of trainers have been selected among the most qualified and experienced staff and have received specialised trainings to become trainers.
The FACE training team aims at:
- Providing training internally to FACE teams
- Providing Capacity building and technical support to Government and civil society organisations
TRANSITIONAL HOME TEAM:

Center operating 24 h / 7 days. 16 staff are running the transitional home, in 2015, 150 children and youth have stayed in FACE transitional home, while preparing their reintegration, or for social or medical emergencies.
FACE tries to support its partners in the long term in order to bring effective changes and impact in partner organisations projects. Collaboration usually start with an assessment phase, for FACE and partners to create a support/training plan adapted to the situation and needs of each partner.
