Sphere Project playing cards

Source(s):  University of Free State (UFS)

The Sphere Project playing cards each include a brief message taken from the Sphere Handbook 2011 Edition. The 52 cards include extracts from the Humanitarian Charter, Protection Principles, Core Standards and sectoral chapters.

The cards are a training resource for trainers and participants at Sphere workshops and they can use them in any way they wish. They can also be used as a refresher after the training. They can even be used during a disaster response for quick reference. Academic institutions can also use them as part of their curriculum.

The Disaster Management Training and Education Centre for Africa has used them with their Masters in Disaster Management Students and the students' response about the playing cards was extremely positive with most of them indicating that the cards helped them with examination revision.

The cards are being distributed for $5 a set and can be couriered/shipped to anywhere in the world within 21 days. To order email or
