One Horizon recognises that by the nature of our work it is at risk of being targeted by those wanting to exploit or harm children and that the effects of abuse on children are both devastating and long term. Therefore, One Horizon will take the necessary steps to prevent this from happening. One Horizon does not allow impromptu visits by members of the public and all visits are conducted as organised tours under the supervision of One Horizon staff. We also do not identify the exact location of our centres as an additional protective measure.
In all circumstances of allegations of child abuse made against a person participating in a One Horizon program, we will invoke local country (Kenyan and/or South African) administrative and policing procedures to manage the process.
In these circumstances, One Horizon staff and guests will also be withdrawn from their project pending the outcome of the investigations.
