Child safety is everybody's business
SOS Children's Villages does not tolerate any form of child abuse, exploitation, neglect or violation of a child's privacy. We are committed to creating and maintaining a caring and protective environment for every child we reach through our programmes.
Every child safeguarding concern or incident reported is taken seriously and is assessed thoroughly. Based on the findings of the assessment, further steps are decided. The guiding principle when dealing with any reported concern is that the safety and welfare of the child always comes first.
We need your help to prevent and to fight incidents of child abuse in the SOS Children's Villages programmes. Based on the information submitted by you, the organisation can identify incidents of child abuse at early stage and take effective steps to deal with the situation. This can include response within the internal processes of the organisation but also informing external child welfare or law enforcement authorities.
Thank you very much for your assistance!
