A very serious issue has been very widely publicised this week in UK. It appears that employees of the UK charity Oxfam, have behaved very badly and abused their positions of trust, in particular in prostitution.
As a charity Helping Uganda Schools has no employees working in Uganda or Rwanda. We work with 4 different partners who are responsible for the work of building and running the schools and in helping disabled or deaf children.
Three partners are three Orders of Catholic Sisters and the fourth is the Organisation for the Parents of Deaf Children.
We have been in contact with them all this week to remind them of the importance of having up to date Safeguarding Policies. Local national legislation requires such policies.
I can reassure all our supporters that we do not have any known problems in this area.
