Training on the safeguarding of minors and persons in situations of vulnerability, Kigali, 10th day

Our last day of training was very practical. In the morning, we took time with Stéphane Joulain to do a case study of how to deal with possible abuse cases. A time of group work allowed us to share on the ways we understand possible situations of abuse.

Subsequently, Lowrent Kamwaza presented how to elaborate a strategic plan. Inspired by his strategic plan as Safeguarding coordinator of the Society, he recommended each and everyone of us to work on our strategic plan of sector/province to go back with concrete actions to be implemented in our safeguarding ministry.

We concluded this training session with recommendations. Those to be presented to the General Council and provincials, some to be carried by the safeguarding delegates and others to be proposed to our different sectors/provinces. We committed ourselves in a final statement (Kigali Statement) to implement this ministry of safeguarding.

Safeguarding is our commitment
