Save the Children Kosova/o staff attends Human-Centered Design workshop

In today's rapidly evolving world, creating solutions that truly meet the needs of communities is essential for driving meaningful change. Recognizing this, SCI held a workshop for SCiK on the principles and techniques of Human-Centered Design (HCD), a user-centric approach that places the needs and experiences of people at the core of the design process. Through an immersive training program, the SCiK is embarking on a journey to empower themselves with the skills and mindset necessary to develop innovative, user-centered solutions that benefit the children and communities they serve.

Human-Centered Design is not just a methodology; it is a philosophy that fosters deep empathy, understanding, and collaboration with end-users. By truly grasping the challenges and aspirations of the communities they aim to assist, our team gains invaluable insights that lead to more effective and impactful projects. The training was a transformative experience, equipping the team with the necessary tools and techniques to empathize with end-users, define problem statements, generate innovative ideas, prototype solutions, and rigorously test and iterate designs.


Interactive sessions, practical exercises, and real-world case studies formed the foundation of the training program. Our team delved into hands-on activities that enable them to step into the shoes of the people they aim to help. By adopting a human-centered mindset, they gain a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the community, enabling them to identify the most pressing problems and design solutions that truly make a difference.

The training will foster a collaborative environment that encourages open communication and diverse perspectives. By bringing together a multidisciplinary team, we can harness the power of collective intelligence and leverage a wide range of expertise to tackle complex challenges. Through collaborative ideation and prototyping sessions, the team will generate innovative ideas that address the specific needs of the community. This inclusive approach ensures that no voice goes unheard, resulting in solutions that are truly representative of the diverse needs and aspirations of the children and communities in Kosovo.
