Study session on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA)

On August 20, JEN held a study session on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) for staff members in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Japan.  At the study session, we learned examples on the measures that humanitarian organizations should take to prevent people affected by disasters and conflicts from being sexually exploited and/or abused by humanitarian organization staff, volunteers, contractors and others concerned.
The measures we learned, for example, are to prohibit acts of  sexual exploitation, abuse, and sexual harassment in the Code of Conduct which is signed by all staff; and to implement programs safely by protecting children, women and vulnerable people and securing their participation.


JEN has implemented all program activities in compliance with The Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS) and respecting the ideas and opinions of those affected by the disaster.  JEN continues to learn the necessary knowledge and do its best so that JEN can always support the independence of the affected people and respect human rights.
