At Chemonics, safeguarding – protecting a person’s right to live safely, free from violence, abuse, and neglect – is integral to the work we do. We identify risks and opportunities for improved prevention and response to sexual harassment, exploitation, and abuse; gender-based violence; and human trafficking. We address root causes of violence and exploitation by leveraging systems to address a complex set of barriers and catalyze collective action through partnerships for violence prevention, response, and risk mitigation. We integrate safeguarding measures to protect our staff, partners, and communities from all forms of violence and apply a survivor-centered approach that is trauma-sensitive, human-rights informed, intersectional, and locally led. We integrate a whole of community approach to safeguarding that considers the enabling environment to develop long-term solutions for recovery and empowerment.
