Course overview:

Cash transfer programming refers to the practice wherein cash or vouchers are directly handed to participants of certain programs. This approach is based on linkages, capacities, relationships and incentives to encourage effective market recovery.

Cash provisions and transfers empower affected individuals to decide on ways and means to meet their requirements by effectively using available local resources. While cash transfers are direct transfers of money to eligible persons, vouchers are redeemable against goods or services.

End of the workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
