Safeguarding our Future Leaders

African Leadership Academy maintains a commitment to a leadership role in safeguarding children on our campus and in our programs.

The Academy endorses the principles and articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and is committed to supporting and respecting children’s rights and protecting children from harm.

The Academy takes its responsibility to protect children from all forms of violence very seriously and will not tolerate any form of abuse or exploitation of children in the programs of the Academy.

Our responsibility to protect children from abuse places clear expectations on every member of the Academy community, and obliges us to act in the best interests of children at all times, including preventing abuse, reporting suspected abuse, and creating a child-friendly environment.
