Safeguarding @ Orphans in Need USA
Orphans in Need USA believe that every child, everywhere, has the right to a happy and healthy life.
All children have a right to protection from violence, exploitation, abuse, and neglect.
We are a child-focused organization and we are committed to making sure children are kept safe and that our staff never exploit the position of trust in which they have been placed.
Orphans in Need USA treats all allegations of abuse very seriously. We do not tolerate any form of harm to children, perpetrated by staff, partners, or anyone else that we have given authority to.
We are committed to continually learning and improving in order to protect our staff, volunteers, and beneficiaries from sexual harassment and abuse.

As we focus only on the care of orphans, we spend time training our partners and staff in safeguarding and delivering appropriate care to children in many countries. This is carried out through facilitating training sessions, monitoring visits, and implementing procedures where the caregivers are required to abide by key principles in relation to the safeguarding and development of children.
