This guide can be used by staff members in Ethiopia who will be sharing information with children about safeguarding. For example, this could be community engagement staff, a safeguarding focal point or child protection practitioners.
This guide focuses on talking to children about abuse, including sexual exploitation, that is caused by CSOs, NGOs and their staff. It does not include talking about Gender-based Violence (GBV) or violence against children within society in general. However, all CSOs and NGOs working with children should have reporting systems for children and should be able to receive reports from children on any type of abuse (including abuse that is caused by anyone within society).
