Safeguarding in Faith-Based Organizations: Benefits, Challenges, and Shared Learning


In faith-based organizations (FBOs), these organizational values are often influenced by faith principles. This case study examines and highlights how organizational values within FBOs influence their safeguarding activities and approach. Five InterAction Member organizations participated in this case study: World Vision United States, Islamic Relief USA, Habitat for Humanity International, Food for the Hungry, and Episcopal Relief and Development. Each organization has a unique affiliation with its respective faith and uses this affiliation in creative ways when approaching safeguarding programming.

Child Protection Training Partners Guide

Helping Partners Develop or Strengthen Their Organizational Child Protection Policies.

Catholic Relief Services has developed a facilitator’s guide to help organizations develop or further strengthen their policies to protect children. This guide is meant to help partners increase their understanding of the issues involved in safeguarding children as well as best practices for organizations in creating safe, protective environments.

Different partners and organizations are at different stages in this process. This facilitation guide is therefore designed in several modules, to allow partners to pick and choose those that are most appropriate for their needs. Not all partners will need all modules. Some partners will want this to help improve their staff’s understanding of protection issues and skills. Others will want to help their management strengthen or develop a protection policy.

This training can be used simply to improve staff and volunteers’ understanding of protection. In that case, the organization can choose a few modules that help build specific skills and knowledge. They can present them as simply a training to staff, volunteers and interested management.

This training can also be used to upgrade or create a protection policy. In this case, the organization can choose to have its management team go through the training on their own, or also with staff. In effect, then, the training would become a policy development workshop.
