ActionAid’s Child Protection Policy


As an international development organization, ActionAid International is committed to the well being of children and our child centred activities are based on principles of the Convention of the Rights of Children 1989 and the Declaration of Human Rights 1948.

ActionAid International does not tolerate any form of child abuse or exploitation. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that ActionAid International has procedures in place to prevent and deal with child abuse and exploitation by any Affiliate, Associate or Country Programme of ActionAid International or the International Secretariat. This policy will apply to all ActionAid International staff and partner staff as well as supporters and donors and all ActionAid Board members.
