Project purpose is “The increased level of safety of children and prevention of abuse within Armenian Caritas projects.” It is clear that no policy can offer complete protection for children, but following standards and procedures fixed in CSP paper, we aim to minimize the risk of children’s abuse and exploitation. By implementing these standards, for all representatives of AC will be clear how they are expected to behave with children and what to do if there are concerns about the safety of a child. By implementing these standards organizations make clear their commitment to keeping children safe. The standards will help them to move towards best practices in this area and deter potential abusers from joining the organization.
