The integrity charter was signed together with the other NGOs in Belgium. It means that FOS is committed to taking the necessary measures to enable prevention, detection and response/sanction in the event of a breach of integrity in the context of our activities.
FOS’ staff signs an Code of Ethics that emphasizes values and standards. The executive partners also sign a commitment to apply ethical principles in their activities.
The following principles are a central touchstone:
- Respect for each and everyone
A code of ethics is submitted to all participants of (service) trips, missions and (working) visits to partner organisations of FOS in countries where FOS operates.
A code of ethics is also submitted to the ‘visiting organisation’ whose staff, board members and/or volunteers participate in (service) trips, missions and (working) visits to partner organisations of FOS in countries where FOS is active.
If you are an employee of one of our partners, or you are a third person who participated in an activity of FOS or a partner of FOS – and you are a witness or victim of an integrity violation, you can contact these hotlines with your concerns, questions or complaints: [email protected]
