Child Protection Policy

Code of Conduct for Bhumians

Bhumi is committed to ensuring all children are safe and protected. The safety, rights and well-being of children participating in our programs is a priority in our daily operations. The intent of this Code of Conduct to protect children is to guide Bhumians (our employees and volunteers) in developing appropriate relationships with the children involved in activities or programs delivered by Bhumi and to create a safe environment for the children.

As an employee/volunteer, you must:

  1. Respect and uphold the personal safety of all children
  2. Seek permission from your Coordinator if you wish to visit the center apart from your stipulated hours of volunteering
  3. Dress appropriately
  4. Treat all children equally, with kindness
  5. Refrain from disclosing any information about the children or the children’s home where Bhumi is operational to any third party without consent from the Bhumi Support Team

Note: Coordinator refers to Centre Coordinator, Project Coordinator, Project Facilitator/Volunteering Coordinator/City Coordinator or Bhumi Support team member

As an employee/volunteer, you must not:

  1. Physically assault or abuse children
  2. Embarrass any child
  3. Initiate any sort of physical contact with a child that may make the child or any responsible observer feel uncomfortable
  4. Take the child to a private space which is away from the vicinity of other volunteers or children
  5. Give gifts or take photographs of children in a personal capacity
  6. Bring individuals who are not registered with Bhumi to any learning center
  7. Show material or share jokes or stories that are sexual in nature, or discussing such issues with a fellow volunteer in the vicinity of children
