Safeguarding

What is meant by safeguarding? Protecting against violence

With its safeguarding policy, AGIAMONDO is committed to protecting people against violence. We define safeguarding as all measures that protect people against violence and contribute to a safe working environment. We also attach a great deal of importance to supporting and protecting vulnerable people.

Who is considered vulnerable? Depending on the situation, anybody can be considered vulnerable. However, certain groups are more likely to experience violence than others. These include children, women, people with disabilities, LGBTIQA+ people and persons confronted with racism.

Protection through prevention

We have implemented various measures to prevent violence from happening in the first place:

  • Training for development workers and employees
  • Code of Conduct: Employees, development workers, short-term advisors and contractors are committed to behaving in a way that respects personal boundaries and prevents violence
  • Recruitment: mandatory police clearance certificate
  • Safeguarding culture: Personal boundaries can be expressed and are respected

Clear procedures

We have established a clear set of procedures for dealing with reports of violence. The most important thing is that everyone is able to turn to our designated contact persons. Cases and reports of violence, including any questions regarding violence, can be addressed and are dealt with immediately and confidentially.
