Child Protection Policy
RCPDS is a Child Focused Rights based organization which envisages keeping children at the central of their own communities and protective environment as Right Holders. We work in the Southern Districts of Tamilnadu in partnership with National and International partners. We as organization recognize that there is a great need to ensure that our own spaces and interaction must be safe for children and all players from within (our own team members including the management board) as well our networks. We feel that child protection is everyone’s business and responsibility.RCPDS is recognized, for its expertise and practical experience in Child Rights Approach, as Resource Organization and provide series of trainings to many child focused organizations in Asia and East Africa. As child Rights organization and as partners to child protection in the National mechanism of CHILDLINE 24 x 7 system, we believe that all our associates and communities we work with must have child friendly and protective ethics and practices. Hence this policy is evolved to demonstrate the strong commitment of the Management, employees and field level volunteers to child safety and establishing workable mechanisms and maintaining child friendly and safe environments.
