This document serves to confirm that Abused and Abandoned Kids Educational Excursions (the “organisation”) holds a policy with the sole purpose of protecting the identities of abused/abandoned/orphaned children that it caters for.
The organisation is committed to ensuring that the rights of the children it caters for are protected at all times. Included in these rights is the right to privacy and anonymity. As the organisation likes to show the public, including sponsors, donors, and the community, its activities from month to month, it has opted to protect the identities of these children, instead of not publishing media/photographs at all.
In order for us to be able to publish photographs for a particular consignment/event that involves the children we cater for, we must first obtain written permission from the associated beneficiary.
Before we consign goods/services or hold an event where the children are to be present, we issue a Public Media Bulletin Acknowledgement and Consent Form to the associated beneficiary. This form contains all the contact details and other necessary information about the beneficiary, as well as information about the consignment/event itself.
It also asks the beneficiary if the organisation has permission to publish photographs to any or all of the following:
This form is then signed by the following persons:
Once permission has been granted, the organisation is then able to take the necessary photographs.
Any claim relating to this policy shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of South Africa, and in the appropriate jurisdiction.
If you have any queries about this policy, please contact us.
