Creating Safe Environments
Child safeguarding is the responsibility that organizations have to keep all children they work with safe. This includes taking proactive measures and actions to ensure that their staff, operations, and programmes do not harm children, and that any concerns regarding children´s safety are reported and appropriate responses are put in place. Child safeguarding encompasses the prevention of physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and maltreatment of children. This requires the creation of safe environments for children’s involvement, participation and learning.
Our programs help challenge all kinds of violence against children and create safe environments for children to feel protected, respected, and their voices heard.
