Published by Good Neighbors Global Partnership Center

The Good Neighbors Child and Adult Safeguarding Policy outlines the organizational commitment to safeguarding, emphasizing protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) and expands on the Good Neighbors Child Protection Policy that has been in place since 2013. 

The purpose of this policy is to: 

  1. Ensure that Good Neighbors continues to protect people from risk or actual harm including neglect, sexual exploitation and abuse, physical abuse, and emotional abuse especially for children, women and vulnerable adults; 
  2. Document how people can raise safeguarding concerns safely; 
  3. Outline Good Neighbors’ procedures including responsibilities, prevention, reporting, responding and training to promote awareness of safeguarding obligations.
It applies to all Good Neighbors employees in all Partnership Countries, Global Offices, affiliated organizations and partners. It also applies during working hours and also outside of working hours to ensure zero tolerance towards incidents of violence, sexual exploitation and abuse by Good Neighbors employees, partners, programming or operations.
