Keeping children within their families
SAFE agrees with the assertion that children are best cared for within their own families but will not compromise child safety therefore where initial assessment indicates that a child /young person is likely to suffer significant harm if they remain where they are, we will house the child in our Transit home with the intention of conducting further assessment to determine the best long term care option for them.
Listening to children
We agree that children should be listened to and this value is embedded in all our work practices for example, when we conduct awareness forums, we make sure that the children participate and give feedback about what they have learnt, how they intend to put our advice into practice and what they think would have made the forum better delivered.
Working with others
We believe in working together with others for better outcomes and as such we value the contribution of other NGO’s and strive to make partnerships with those with similar objects to ours so we could pull resources and learn from each other.
We recognize and respect other people’s values but we do not compromise our own values therefore we will not affiliate with people or Organisations whose values conflict with ours but we do not discriminate on grounds of race, religion, gender, disability, age, sex or sex orientation.
