Safeguarding

The trustees of Harambee Schools Kenya (HSK) are committed to helping children and therefore take child safeguarding extremely seriously. HSK’s central aim is to help create 'child-safe' environments where children and young adults are respected and protected and where trustees, volunteers, employees and visitors who come into contact with children, have the skills, confidence and support required to help safeguard them. Clear policies, correct procedures and good practice are essential to this; where possible, we also look to minimise risks so as to ensure no child is at risk from abuse, whether physical, social or emotional as a result of their association with us.
