Child protection charter

FXB programs focus on the prevention and reduction of all forms of violence and insecurity against children. As children are the primary beneficiaries of the organization’s actions, it is essential that the organization has a clear child protection policy to protect them and reduce the risks of abuse where they may exist. 

For the purposes of this charter, the term “Child Protection” is used to describe the behavioural protocols and procedures applicable to protect children from acts that could harm them, whether intentional or unintentional.

This transparency and ethics policy applies specifically to the duties of FXB employees, as well as to people and partners associated with FXB.

Charter on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse

FXB programs focus on preventing and reducing all forms of violence and insecurity against children and women – the primary victims of sexual exploitation and abuse.

It is therefore essential that the organization has a clear policy against sexual exploitation and abuse in order to protect our beneficiaries and employees from any type of abuse and to minimize the risk of abuse where it may exist.  

This protection from sexual exploitation and abuse charter applies specifically to the duties of FXB employees, as well as to individuals and partners associated with FXB.

Transparency

Out of 1 euro / swiss franc / USD donated to the François-Xavier Bagnoud Association, 85 centimes are directly allocated to our programs, to our most urgent needs or according to the donor’s wishes, 10 centimes to fundraising and communication and 5 centimes to administrative costs.

Operational transparency

A sophisticated monitoring and evaluation system has been developed by an experienced team consisting of our field staff, specialists and experts from the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University to ensure the best possible results. 

Tangible indicators are defined for each programme and FXB employees are trained in data collection skills and techniques. These are used in the field to facilitate coordination between programs and their implementation. 

More in-depth analyses are regularly undertaken at headquarters in Geneva or by external auditors. These allow for results-based decision-making in the field to develop and optimize operations, procedures and practices. They also enable us to provide accurate reports in terms of quantitative and qualitative impact to our partners.
