A new certificate of achievement for completing a mentorship programme with the Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub.

The Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub (RSH): is a programme that aims to support organizations in the aid sector to strengthen their safeguarding policy and practice against Sexual Exploitation, Abuse, and Sexual Harassment (SEAH). RSH supports organizations working in both the humanitarian and development sectors but is driven by the needs of smaller national or local organizations in developing countries. RSH is delivered in consortium with Options, Social Development Direct, International Council of Voluntary Agencies, Terre des hommes, Clear Global, and Sightsavers. It is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) until 2024.

The RSH Mentoring Program is a long-term learning process where HiHFAD is one of the 10 organizations that received 6 months of tailored development and training on Safeguarding. The program included reviewing our Safeguarding Policy and practices as well as safeguarding capacity building.

The program priorities were: Understanding risk, Safeguarding Standards, Culture and Leadership, Accountability, Communication, Safe Recruitment, Safe Programming, Information and Communication Technology, Investigation, Policies, and Procedures.

The SNL (Syrian Networks League) also supported this program hence their signature is on the certificate.
