FACE believes that training and capacity building of staff is essential in order to ensure the best care possible for the children as well as staff motivation. For this reason, important resources are allocated to training. All staff, whether a director, social worker, cleaner, accountant… receive an initial full training on Child Protection and Child Rights as soon as they start their job. All trainings are interactive and concrete, through practical and recorded role play sessions.
FACE Training Program aims at ensuring continuous and quality capacity building for FACE teams in order to maintain high quality services and to support governmental institutions and other local NGO’s.
FACE created its own “Child Protection Policy and Procedures"
based on the Egyptian Child Law and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), Article 19. It provides a framework of principles, standards and guidelines to protect the child from all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect, exploitation, including sexual abuse. FACE is committed to put in place these procedures within all its programs and among its partners projects. UNICEF requested FACE to train the Egyptian “Child Protection Centers” in Cairo and Greater Cairo on Child Protection.
FACE participated in a national assessment of orphanages
in 2016, for the Ministry of Social Solidarity, as a preliminary step taken by the Minister to evaluate the situation of the institutions in Egypt and see what measures need to be taken to either close institutions, or drastically improve the others by technical support and training.
