This month (July 2019), our Thailand Child Safeguarding team partnered with the Office of Child Protection of the Church of Christ in Thailand (CCT) for an inaugural Code of Conduct for Child Safeguarding Writer’s Workshop. The two-day gathering made time and space for all communities in the “first generation” network to develop their locally-relevant code to ensure the children in their care – in schools, churches and hospitals – are safe. The workshop’s success is that each communities wrote its first draft code based on the details and dynamics of their CCT institution and leadership. In the coming weeks and months, the Codes of Conduct will be shared with communities who will have a chance to learn the details of ways to be sure they are followed so that no harm of any kind comes to children in Church affiliates: schools or congregations.
