WHY FENPS? WHY CHILD SAFEGUARDING?
  5. 5. FENPS is a non-governmental organization established in 2003 to play a role in addressing the particular needs of especially vulnerable groups in society, for example young girls in general, children belonging to minority groups, internally displaced people, refugees, returnees, the disabled and children from deprived backgrounds, who often lack education, health care, protection and livelihood opportunities. VISION: FENPS has a vision of a society where all children have access to quality education and are not subjected to any abuse. MISSION: The mission of FENPS is to uplift children and allow them to grow in confidence and realize their fullest potential through guidance, education and training in secure and caring environments that are conducive to learning. The aim of FENPS is to provide youth and children with positive values and skills for their personal and national development. ABOUT FENPS
  6. 6.  FENPS is doing two things to promote safeguarding and child protection in education in Somalia, viz: a) improving its internal child safeguarding policy to strengthen the capacity of its employees in order to protect its beneficiaries (children and other people at risk) and also to protect the organization and its employees and b) advocating for promotion and implementation of safeguarding and protection of children in all educational organizations in Somalia to enhance the impact of their work on children WHAT IS FENPS DOING NOW TO PROMOTE SAFEGUARDING IN EDUCATION?
  7. 7.  In June 2019 FENPS joined Keeping Children Safe (KCS)  KCS supported FENPS in developing child safeguarding manual, and now FENPS has its child safeguarding policy, Standards and procedures improved  FENPS made presentations on child safeguarding in two Education Cluster meetings (i.e.in July 2019 and in August 2019).  FENPS spread the word of child safeguarding and Keeping Children Safe initiatives and at least 3 other local NGOs applied to KCS to improve their child safeguarding policy and procedures, following FENPS lead.  FENPS and Save the Children facilitated 2 days training workshop on child safeguarding and child protection for 20 administration level persons from 20 local NGOs in October 2019 in Mogadishu. FENPS achievement in improving its child safeguarding policy and advocacy to other local NGOs in Somalia
  8. 8. Target Audience: FENPS targets organizations who work with or for children, particularly Education Cluster partners (Somali NGOs), schools ,Colleges and Universities in Somalia. The Message: The message FENPS wants to get across is to urge concerned organizations to develop child safeguarding policies in their education settings in order to contribute to minimizing all possible risks of damage to children under their care. TARGET AUDIENCE AND MESSAGE OF FENPS
  9. 9. Way forward:  FENPS is considering to continue improving its procedures regarding child safeguarding and to reach out more audiences in the year 2020 and beyond if everything goes according to its plan. Recommendation:  The subject of safe guarding is new to most of the Somali NGOs so that it is strongly suggested to build the capacity of Somali NGOs in the areas of developing and implementing child safe guarding policies ,Standards and procedures in their places of work and schools in a realistic and practical way, which can be put into operation simply and effectively.  Local/national NGOs should be provided with financial and technical support to enable them to manage and implement international donor funded projects/programs that will contribute to localizing /contextualizing the humanitarian aid and development programmes with intent of achieving the SDGs agenda WAY FORWARD AND RECOMMENDATIONS
  10. 10.  Use of codes of conduct and co-signed standards with staff, volunteers and associates that state how FENPS and its partners are expected to behave towards children with specific warnings that disciplinary actions will be taken against anyone who shows abusive behaviour inside or outside FENPS targeted on children.  The organization, its beneficiaries, employees and all other persons involved are now protected than ever because of the safeguarding policies developed within FENPS organization that have had positive impact both on the work and learning environments where everybody, be a child or an employee, feels safe and protected to a certain extent despite the fact that there is still a possibility of risk happening to children-hence the need for more consistent vigilance and watchfulness on risky situations with which children may be going through. GOOD CHILD SAFEGUARDING PRACTICES NOTED
  11. 11. Written child rights and safeguarding documents that look good on paper, but not proven in practice. TO THE ORGANIZATIONS: Make child safeguarding part and parcel of everything you do (e.g.) education policies, plans, programs and activities in their workplaces and schools. Engage in meaningful communication and networking with other partners such as KCS to improve your Child Safeguarding procedures and make your organization and beneficiaries are protected with special attention paid to children. WHEN CHILD SAFEGUARDING IS INEFFECTIVE
