Protection of vulnerable children
With volunteers, trainees and others who regularly come into contact with children in Uganda we speak about behavioral aspects beforehand and a certificate of conduct is required for them as well. All Ugandan staff must sign the 'Child Protection Policy'. This document describes the rights of the children and the protection of their integrity both inside and outside of educational situations, as well as the sanctions policy for violations by different staff groups.
Methods of fundraising
Our methods of fundraising include sponsorship of orphans, distribution of newsletters, social media information, and specific campaigns at schools or in businesses. We also submit projects to various trust funds.
