Safeguard Policies

We ensure each of our field partners in Ethiopia have rigorous safeguard policies in place to protect the wellbeing of children and vulnerable people, support gender equality and ensure the highest standards in staff code of conduct.

Here is an overview of the safeguarding policies upheld by our partners:

  • Child Protection Policy | To protect children from harm, exploitation and abuse and provide the safest possible environment for any children with whom we work.
  • Gender Equality Policy | To promote the equal realisation of dignity and human rights for all – girls, women, boys and men.
  • HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy | To create a supportive work environment for all staff and volunteers while minimising the prevalence of HIV infection and assisting in lifestyle management for HIV positive employees.
  • Code of Conduct | To follow values of community participation, trust, non-discrimination and respect for local values while promoting self-reliance and community participation as we help people and communities seek solutions to the challenges they face.

Program & Partner Audits

We perform comprehensive internal audits each year when visiting our partners in Ethiopia and also compile quarterly and annual reports from each of our partners. This ensures the funds we raise are used in a visibly efficient way and that the projects they fund achieve meaningful results.

Find out more about the results we're achieving and how our funding is used in our latest Impact Report below.

“From the very start, our core strategic objectives have been founded on ethics, best practice and professional code of conduct. Even as Ethiopiaid has grown into a global organisation with teams across the UK, Canada, Ireland and Australia, I am proud that we have never lost sight of our identity as an ethical, grounded and approachable charity, proudly connecting our supporters to the causes they care about in Ethiopia."
