Train Like a Champion

We have just introduced a short one page ‘Train like a Champion’ article, together with a two day ‘Train Like a Champion’ (TLC) workshop, and a three day ‘Humanitarian Train Like a Champion’ (HTLC) variant of this. This material is designed for the humanitarian or development practitioner who is required to teach or facilitate in the field, but yet who has no formal training or capacity building background.


Chris Piper is a multi-skilled, multi-lingual Global Humanitarian Practitioner, who has complementary skills in humanitarian consultancy/advisory work; training; and research. The link below focuses in on his experience as a humanitarian teacher, trainer & facilitator.  

October Update

The TorqAid October Update highlights some of the latest material on the TorqAid Toolkit. This includes seven new Short Courses on humanitarian issues, and a link to a Post on hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons.


September 2019 was the month when Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas, and moved up the eastern coast of the US. As a result of this, TorqAid has updated its Post on Hurricanes-Cyclones-typhoons. This is useful material for both the humanitarian and development practitioner, as well as for tertiary/secondary students, and includes examples of earlier hurricanes/cyclones/typhoons from the Caribbean, SW Pacific (including Australia), NW Pacific, the Indian Ocean, and the Bay of Bengal.
