Brac, one of the largest NGOs in the world, is planning to work on Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) issues to safeguard its employees.
Advocacy activities aimed at raising awareness among its employees will be done in future, said speakers at a Wednesday training programme in a Cox's Bazar hotel.
The Humanitarian Crisis Management Programme (HCMP) of Brac organised the four-day programme on 'Safeguarding and PSEA Training.' It will end on 13 June, said a press release.
Farzana Siddiqua, manager, human resources division (training and safeguarding) of Brac's HCMP, moderated the event.
She said Brac is giving importance to the issue of protection, capacity building and skill development of its employees, alongside the development of marginal people.
Hasina Akhter Huq, area director of HCMP of Brac, said safeguarding is not a matter of women now. Rather, it is an essential matter for keeping the work environment safe for both men and women.
Brac will hold more advocacy related activities in the days to come by raising awareness among its employees through training, she added.
Khondoker Shafiqul Alam and Nitu Barua of its learning and leadership development programme conducted the training session.
Sharmin Akhter and Sutanuka Barua Tupur attended as trainers on behalf of HCMP of Brac.
Some 40 trainees from different programmes under the Human Crisis Management Programme (HCMP) of Brac are participating in the 'Safeguarding and PSEA Training' programme.
The training aims at raising awareness on the issue of ensuring a safe atmosphere for employees, partners, beneficiaries, volunteers, suppliers, Rohingyas, and the host community of Brac, by protecting them from abuse and exploitation.
