Child Protection Policy

DOWNLOAD PDF

The need to protect children is a universal obligation that is embraced by The Asia Foundation in its work and is explicitly required by some donors. Children who experience exploitation and abuse are less likely to fully participate in their own development, education and well-being, and more likely to suffer mental health issues, reduced educational outcomes and drug and alcohol abuse. The Asia Foundation staff and partners who come into contact with children during delivery of programs are in a position of trust and authority, and should avoid actions or conduct which may constitute poor practice or potentially abusive behavior. While The Asia Foundation has limited programming that provides direct support for implementation with children, we are committed to child protection as set forth in the following policy.
