Safety is a guiding principle that steers our work with communities affected by war and armed conflict: to ensure a safe space for everyone who participates in our programs.
The safeguarding of our staff and program participants is not only inherent in our guiding principles, but also informs the daily operations of our organization. As we work on a daily basis with vulnerable children and adults who are in or at risk of becoming involved in abusive, exploitative or dangerous situations, we are committed to safeguarding as a fundamental element of our organizational culture in order to protect the rights of our participants and to ensure their well-being.
We recognize that safeguarding is a practice that needs to be given regular attention and we invite the feedback of our participants, supporters and stakeholders on the effectiveness of our efforts and practices.
If you have any questions or concerns in regards to safeguarding within our programs, you are welcome to contact Meagan Hughes, Designated Safeguarding Lead: [email protected]
