CECI’s mission is to combat poverty and exclusion. In pursuit of this mission, the organization carries out international cooperation and assistance programs and strives to build development capacities among disadvantaged communities.
In doing so, CECI forges relationships built on the values of partnership, solidarity, collaboration and respect. Yet it cannot be denied that there are power inequalities within this work, and CECI is well aware of its duty to protect the populations with whom it works.
CECI also strives to create safe workplaces and programs by providing an abuse-free environment.
The purpose of this policy is to combat harassment, exploitation and sexual abuse, including all forms of sexual misconduct.
