Our obligations, which include rigorous background checking for all volunteers and staff, are underpinned by our commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Our zero tolerance of child abuse and exploitation helps ensure that our Board of Directors, staff, contractors and volunteers are safe for children. The AVI Child Protection Policy is reviewed and updated every two years.

AVI’s Position on Residential Care for Children

Residential care of children, in all its forms, often acts as a vehicle for the removal of children’s rights, including their right to grow up in a family environment. AVI is committed to upholding a rights-based approach to children in need of care and protection throughout all aspects of its work. Our Position on Residential Care for Children outlines AVI’s position to proactively support organisations re-thinking traditional models of children’s care and support transitions towards family/community-based alternatives.
