Child Protection Policy
Masaka Diocese Education Secretariat MDES is currently developing its own child protection policy; the project is being carried out in cooperation with ADEPT. So far, the organization has used publications from other associations to raise awareness among teachers regarding the issue. By issuing its own child protection guideline, the Diocese of Masaka School Association is positioning itself by declaring the standards of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to be binding for its schools. The target group of the child protection guideline are all students of the 750 educational institutions of the Diocese of Masaka. The project is financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Beurer Foundation.
