Protection is at the heart of humanitarian assistance

Protection in humanitarian and development contexts is about ensuring safety and wellbeing and encompasses respect for human rights. In a crisis or emergency, those who are most likely to have their rights violated are the most vulnerable and marginalised, often women, children, older persons, and those with disabilities. Protection is about empowering equitable access to services and opportunities. Protection principles value human dignity, encourage participation, and promote non-bias and inclusion in programming. We work to address issues that violate basic human rights, including human trafficking, gender-based violence, and lack of access to education through our innovative and multi-dimensional projects that promote access, prevent trafficking and violence, and address root causes.
