PSEA Certification


HumanitarianHR is the only organization that provides certification solely to verify that an organization has met the highest standards to protect vulnerable people from sexual exploitation and abuse.  

A PSEA Certification from HHR demonstrates to donors, staff and other interested parties, including the people you serve, that you are not only serious about preventing and responding to sexual exploitation and abuse, but that you have a culture of safeguarding vulnerable people.  

You actively follow up on complaints and you investigate and deal with perpetrators.

HumanitarianHR will help you meet the highest standards of protection in the following areas:

  • PSEA Policies

  • Staff awareness

  • Recruitment & Selection

  • Complaint and reporting mechanisms

  • Investigations

  • Response

Certification involves an audit conducted by an independent HHR evaluator.  HHR staff will help you address any identified gaps related to PSEA and help with an implementation plan so you can become certified.
