The issue of sexual exploitation and abuse within development and humanitarian work and the need for charities to follow the highest standards in all their interactions with people in the countries where they work has been a matter of considerable public concern in the UK in recent years. It is an issue that HOPE UK takes very seriously. Whilst HOPE Ethiopia’s Country Director is responsible to HOPE’s head office in Canada, rather than to HOPE UK, clearly HOPE UK trustees need to be assured that the highest standards are adhered to in projects for which we are fundraising, and that standards are compliant with best practice and UK law. For this reason, we have worked closely with our colleagues in HOPE Canada to ensure that there is a sound policy in place which applies to all of HOPE’s work worldwide, and we maintain ongoing dialogue on this policy and its implementation.
