AGP Child Protection Policy
International Volunteer HQ (AGP) is committed to upholding the security, rights and freedoms of children and vulnerable adults at all times. While assisting developing communities through providing international volunteers to local organizations, the first priority of AGP is the safety and protection of the children and vulnerable people they are working alongside. AGP is committed to ensuring that the children and vulnerable adults are not exposed to abuse, exploitation, violence or neglect.
As a responsible volunteer travel operator, we understand the importance of having effective policies and processes in place to protect the welfare and interests of the communities and individuals that our operations interact with. We know that particular risks exist in relation how we interact with children and vulnerable adults and we’re focussed on ensuring that those risks are mitigated through the effective implementation of this policy.
The Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy is an organization-wide policy and statement of intent. It applies to all AGP staff members and our operations, the operations of our partner organizations and also the actions of our volunteers. The policy is written with the acknowledgement that every AGP volunteer and every member of our organization has a responsibility to support the care and protection of children and vulnerable adults.
It also considers that AGP does not hold sole responsibility for protecting these members of society and identifies that their protection is also incumbent upon other stakeholders such as government agencies, families groups and non-government organisations.
For the purposes of this policy, a child is considered to be any person who is under 16 years of age. A vulnerable adult is considered to be someone who may be in need of additional community support for reasons of disability, illness or socio-economic conditions. This includes older adults suffering from dementia, or adults through poverty are unable to care for themselves and avoid exploitation.
When this policy refers to placement participants the conditions are related to any individual or group of individuals who are the recipient of the placement’s services. This can include children, vulnerable adults or any other individual who volunteers interact with on their placement.
When this policy refers to abuse the primary interpretations is sexual abuse or other physical or mental harm deliberately caused to a person. Similarly, exploitation refers to an act of treating a person unfairly in order to gain some kind of benefit.
BEST INTERESTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL
All decisions and actions concerning a child or vulnerable adult will take the best interest of the individual as the most important consideration. It will be the policy of AGP that decisions or actions regarding any child, vulnerable adult, or groups of either, should ensure that the positive impact of the decision or action will outweigh any negative impact.
AGP is committed to enforcing a policy of non-discrimination at all times. All children and vulnerable adults who have an interaction with AGP and our volunteers will be treated with respect and equal consideration.
The guidelines set out in the Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy aim to protect both children and vulnerable adults from abuse, and also volunteers from false accusation of abuse.
It is the policy of AGP to:
IMAGE RELEASE FORM
I hereby grant Around Good People (AGP) its successors, assigns, and legal representatives (“AGP”) the irrevocable right to use my name, photograph, image, audio recording, video recording, and/or likeness (the “image”) in all forms and manner, including, but not limited to, photographs, videos, or other digital media in any and all of its publications, including Internet web-based publications, websites, promotional material, or for any other similar purpose, without payment or other consideration to me.
I understand and agree that all images will become the property of the AGP and will not be returned. I hereby irrevocably authorize AGP to edit, alter, copy, exhibit, publish, or distribute these images for any lawful purpose. I waive any right to inspect or approve the finished product wherein the image appears. Additionally, I waive any right to royalties or other compensation arising or related to the use of the image.
I hereby hold harmless, release, and forever discharge AGP, and its owners, officers, directors, successors, assigns, and legal representatives from all claims, demands, and causes of action which I, my heirs, representatives, executors, administrators, or any other persons acting on my behalf or on behalf of my estate have or may have arising out of or in connection with this authorization. This Image Release shall be governed by the laws of Nepal.
ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
AGP has appointed a representative in each country in which AGP operates to be responsible for ensuring that the Child and Vulnerable Protection Policy is distributed and understood by all associates of AGP and the program.
AGP actively encourages that this policy is also used by placements in which AGP volunteers work and is implemented by placement staff.
The Program Manager is responsible for advising and informing all local staff and placement staff of the Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy and is responsible for the effective implementation of this policy in country.
Senior managers at AGP are responsible for the development and implementation of this policy. They ensure that its content and the procedures that support its implementation are fit for purpose. They ensure partners understand and support the policy, and adhere to them it at all times. They also ensure it is communicated appropriately with volunteers and other relevant stakeholders.
AGP staff members are involved in periodically auditing the application of this policy by the partners who facilitate each of our programs. They conduct compliance checks as part of regular program visits and oversee the reporting of these checks back to senior management.
All AGP volunteers will receive a copy of the Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy during their program orientation and must acknowledge, in writing, their receipt and understanding of their responsibilities under the policy. They are made aware of the policy and the Code of Conduct within it throughout their engagement with AGP and any failure to meet the requirements of the policy is considered a breach of AGP’s Terms and Conditions of Service.
AGP VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT, SCREENING AND ORIENTATION
CODE OF CONDUCT FOR AGP VOLUNTEERS
This Code of Conduct provides guidelines deemed to be appropriate and proper behavior for AGP volunteers when interacting with children and vulnerable adults. These guidelines are primarily designed to protect the individuals that volunteers work with, but are also intended to protect volunteers from false accusations of inappropriate behavior or abuse.
Social Media Policy
Around Good People uses social media in its work and recognizes that those who are involved in its work may also use social media either as part of their role or in their private lives. A written policy is therefore required for all staff, volunteers and stakeholders on the acceptable use of social networking at work. Primarily, the motive behind enshrining the policy is to ensure the safety and interest of the international volunteers .We faced a few avoidable situations in the past as some of AGP staff and the participating volunteers were engaged in private social networking interactions that resulted in unpalatable and unwholesome predicaments for the international volunteers, which was brought to our notice when it was beyond our meaningful intervention.
Around Good People encourages the responsible use of social media. The purpose of this policy is to set out what AGP expects from our volunteers when using social media. It is important to remember that we are all ambassadors for the charity and that social media is never private.
This policy is solely for volunteers and aims to:
The following sections of the policy provide volunteers with common-sense guidelines and recommendations for using social media responsibly and safely.
Volunteers should also avoid social communications that might be misconstrued in a way that could damage our business reputation, even indirectly.
We recognize that volunteers may occasionally desire to use social media for personal activities in the office or by means of our computers, networks and other IT resources and communications systems. We authorize such occasional use during rest break so long as it does not involve unprofessional or inappropriate content and does not interfere with your volunteering role. You should not use Around Good People IT resources and communications systems for any matter that you wish to be kept private or confidential. If using social media while volunteering, circulating chain letters or other spam is never permitted. Circulating or posting commercial, personal, religious or political solicitations, or promotion of outside organizations unrelated to Around Good People work is also prohibited.
KEEPING YOU SAFE AS OUR PROGRAMS RE-OPEN
Last updated: 4th April, 2021 Contact Us
KEEP CALM and CARRY ON –
The Enlightenment that speak to this time of coronavirus shutdowns and of health and economic fears.
Travel in response to COVID-19 continues to evolve rapidly. AROUND GOOD PEOPLE is closely monitoring the situation, following the advice of public health experts, and making decisions with our participants, staff, and global community partners at the forefront of every conversation.
As the world begins to re-open, your wellbeing is our highest priority.
Thanks to the incredible team effort of millions around the world, many countries are beginning to exit their COVID-19 lockdowns and re-open their countries for visitors. While some regions may remain restricted for some months more, we plan to restart our Dental Placement volunteer programs where the local health situation and government advice allows this, and currently it looks like we will be able to resume our flagship dental outreach volunteering projects by the 2nd half of November, 2021. Through these marquee community dentistry outreach AROUND GOOD PEOPLE’s volunteers provide invaluable support to our local communities around the underprivileged communities in Nepal. Now more than ever, our volunteers’ contributions of time, expertise and local spending money are critically needed to help these communities to get back on their feet.
Since long before COVID-19 began to spread, AROUND GOOD PEOPLE has followed industry-leading procedures to ensure the safety of our volunteers. As our programs start to re-open to volunteers, we will maintain our pledge to keep you safe. In addition to our standard volunteer safety processes, all of our local program teams will be following enhanced procedures we have developed to minimize risks from COVID-19 for everyone concerned.
Our volunteers should also take personal responsibility for their own health and the safety of others. Please do not travel if you are feeling ill or if there is a risk you may be an asymptomatic carrier of COVID-19 – for example, if you have been exposed to an infected individual within the 14 days before you start your AROUND GOOD PEOPLE program.
Most of our volunteers book their trips months in advance, so please take this time to plan for the future. With AROUND GOOD PEOPLE you can register for trips up to three years ahead.
Thank you for your ongoing support of AROUND GOOD PEOPLE and the communities we work within. If there’s anything we can do to help you with your travel plans during this time, please get in touch with us for further information, support and guidance.
If you continue scrolling down this page, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions the AROUND GOOD PEOPLE team are being asked, including details on which programs will open in the near future under different emerging scenarios.
Please stay safe, be kind, and protect the health of yourself and others, wherever you are in the world.
Co-Founder & Chief Executive,
AROUND GOOD PEOPLE
Before we continue, let us say:
Thank you to all those on the front lines, the doctors, the nurses, the pharmacists, the first responders, and other medical staff. You’ve risked your health to save us. You are the true heroes.
Thank you to everyone working to get us what we need. Without the grocery store employees, the delivery drivers, the warehouse staff, the manufacturing workers, and others who are supporting the relief operation, we wouldn’t be able to fight this deadly virus. Without teachers and childcare workers, we couldn’t support our youth. You all are the everyday heroes.
Thank you to everyone practicing social distancing and staying at home. You’ve done your part to prevent the spread.
So, in this note, we have highlighted dental volunteer projects in Nepal that you can join after the Coronavirus pandemic has passed and life returns to some sort of normalcy, which we are hoping by the second half of November 2021. See what projects catch your eye, bookmark them, and apply to one.
With these volunteer programs, we used a wait-and-see approach these past one and a half years. Due to the roll out of the vaccines in various parts of the world we can now anticipate the slowing down of the pandemic although some pockets are getting resurgent. The new normal is – just in case the situation becomes stable, and the international travels are eased, we are preparing for the year-end dental outreach projects in Nepal. If you’re interested in a specific program, stay in touch with us. That way, once things do settle down, you’ll be ready to go to Nepal for a life changing volunteering experience. To make things simpler for the student communities who still want to make it to Nepal projects, money matters have become the most vexed of the issues; despite of the vicissitudes of the Covid19, AGP will make full refund of the Placement Fees if any of the signed projects are cancelled due to covid exigencies. Our commitment and solidarity with the volunteering students and the host community in these difficult times are honest -to-goodness.
A RESPONSIBLE AND INTENTIONAL RETURN TO TRAVEL
After months of planning and preparation, Around Good People successfully ran two Nepal dental hospital based placements this Spring 2021. Although there has been heavy demand for in-person programming, we have followed our travel mantra to go slow and mindfully as we navigate the many considerations of programming amidst a public health crisis. This intentional approach has allowed us to develop, hone, and implement our COVID safe travel practices with the best interests of our staff, participants, and communities at center. Over the past year, Around Good People has been a leader in developing industry wide pandemic best practices, advised schools on COVID mitigation strategies, and collaborated with partner organizations to offer modified programming. With a strong and tested risk management foundation, we will be able to gradually return to international dental programs in the Winters 2021-22.
INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMING OUTLOOK
We have been heartened by the recent trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the US and Australia, we’ve seen a steady decline in numbers likely due to a combination of preventative measures, vaccination, and broader immunity in the population. Globally, travel restrictions have started to soften and countries are reopening their borders to travelers once again. We are not out of the woods yet, but we are headed in the right direction: we believe international programming will be possible by the year end 2021.
TO OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY
COMMUNITY RELIEF FUND
Many of the global communities and nonprofits that have made Around Good People programs possible over the past 10 years have been hit especially hard by COVID-19. In response, the Around Good People Fund —a nonprofit 501c3 and our nonprofit partner organization Mt. Everest Forest Botanicals Alliance—created the Community Relief Fund.
The Community Relief Fund provides direct support to our in-country partners who are particularly vulnerable. The fund has raised more than $6,000 which has been distributed through small grants, mostly aimed at providing food and essential supplies (like PPE) to households and rural community health outposts in our partner community.
FAQS: AROUND GOOD PEOPLE AND COVID-19
HOW IS AROUND GOOD PEOPLE RESPONDING TO COVID-19?
We are consulting regularly with our risk management team, regional staff, and a variety of global health experts and organizations including the WHO, CDC, and our partner in managing student health and safety, International SOS. In addition, Around Good People is in touch with peer organizations in order to share information and work collaboratively in the interest of our participants and partner communities. We have developed an in-field management and response plan and trained our staff to risk factors, prevention measures, and response protocols. As travel restrictions lift and conditions improve, we will engage international programming that take into account COVID-19 considerations.
WHEN WILL AROUND GOOD PEOPLE RESUME INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMING?
Around Good People has cancelled all spring 2021 scheduled international programs, although we are operating domestically for the dental hospital placements. While there have been a few positive developments at home and abroad, the persistent global uncertainty, risk of contagion to host communities, and unprecedented travel restrictions still make it difficult for us to offer international programming. This said, we are optimistic that we will be able to resume international programming in the near future; additional time, downward trends, interventions, & understanding will greatly increase the chances of programs running as soon as the year-end 2021. Once the global travel conditions improve, it will still be likely that certain restrictions and social distancing measures will remain in place and ultimately, that travel may look different until we have a widely distributed vaccine. We anticipate that the coming months will be a very telling time in determining the short-term trajectory of the response to COVID-19 as vaccine distribution, social distancing policies, and travel restrictions shift. We know that our participants, instructors, and in-country partners are eagerly awaiting definitive updates, and we are grateful for your patience and understanding as we collectively hope for the global situation to improve.
HOW WILL AROUND GOOD PEOPLE DECIDE WHICH PROGRAMS TO RUN?
We have been actively assessing programming feasibility on two primary areas in which we need to feel high confidence before committing to an international program:
The above is a very simplified summary of some of the key global switches that need to turn from red to green over the coming months in order for us to resume programming in the year end of 2021and early 2022. In each of these areas, we will be giving foremost consideration to the safety of our students and in-country partners, as well as the impacts on the overall quality of the experience. In addition, we may need to consider other program modifications and alternatives to adhere to public health best practices in the places we travel.
Student safety is always our top priority, and we would not hesitate to modify or cancel upcoming programs should it ever appear that student health and well-being could not adequately be ensured, or if travel restrictions inhibited us from delivering a high-quality program experience. This said, we are increasingly confident that we will be able to offer international programs in the year end 2021 and early 2022.
WHAT IS AROUND GOOD PEOPLE REFUND POLICY FOR UPCOMING PROGRAMS?
We have updated our Refund Policy to give you additional flexibility in making plans in these uncertain times. We will continue to proactively update our refund policy to provide you with added flexibility as new information comes to light. Our intention is to minimize financial commitments and risk so that you can stay with us as we wait for the global situation to improve. There will be full refund of the Placement Fees if the outreach project is cancelled by Around Good People pursuant to a travel ban or official lock down by either the governments of the host country or the country of residence.
SHOULD WE CONSIDER TRAVELING IN THIS NEW REALITY?
Around Good People core mission is to foster face-to-face human connection through experiential learning and sharing of skills, which feels more necessary now than ever. As restrictions begin to relax, we want to acknowledge that travel will continue to have inherent risks and the decision whether to travel is a very personal one. In a world increasingly eager to shut itself off from one another we fear that the pandemic may be another catalyst for increasing divisions and fear of difference. We hope that this trend will lessen as COVID is brought under control and that we can continue to build bridges and greater understanding between cultures. Ultimately, it’s not a question of if this global health crisis will pass, but rather when. And once it does, the need for an immersive and empathetic global education of experiential learning will be greater than ever.
WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT AROUND GOOD PEOPLE AND COVID-19?

WILL AROUND GOOD PEOPLE RUN DENTAL VOLUNTEERING PROJECTS IN 2021-22?
We are optimistic that we can resume international programming once the global situation improves, yet we acknowledge that certain restrictions and social distancing will likely exist for the near and medium term. We anticipate that the coming months will be a very telling time in determining the near-term trajectory of the global response to COVID-19 as social distancing policies and restrictions begin to shift. The reality is that we still need to wait for conditions to improve before reaching any conclusions about planned programs in 2021-22. We know that our participants, instructors, and in-country partners are eagerly awaiting definitive updates, and we are grateful for your patience and understanding as we collectively hope for the global situation to improve. For more information on likely travel scenarios, review our Fall 2021/Winter 2021-22 Programming Outlook page.
HOW WILL AROUND GOOD PEOPLE DECIDE WHICH PROJECT TO RUN?
Over the coming weeks and months, we are actively assessing programming feasibility on three primary fronts, in all of which we need to see significant improvements before running a AROUND GOOD PEOPLE program:
The above is a simplified summary of some of the key global and regional switches that need to turn from red to green over the coming months in order for us to resume our flagship dental volunteering projects. In each of these areas, we will be giving foremost consideration to the safety of our students and in-country partners, as well as the impacts on the overall quality of the experience. In addition, we may need to consider other program modifications and alternatives to adhere to public health best practices in the places we travel which are in line with the recommendations of CDC & FDI.
Student safety is always our top priority, and we would not hesitate to modify or cancel upcoming programs should it ever appear that student health and well-being could not adequately be ensured, or if travel restrictions inhibited us from delivering a high-quality program experience.
WHAT IS AROUND GOOD PEOPLE REFUND POLICY FOR UPCOMING PROGRAMS?
We have updated our Refund Policies to give you additional flexibility in making plans in these uncertain times. We will continue to proactively update our refund policy to provide you with added flexibility as new information comes to light. Our intention is to minimize financial commitments and risk so that you can stay with us as we wait for the global situation to improve. There will be full refund of the Placement Fees if the outreach project is cancelled by Around Good People pursuant to a covid-19 travel ban or official lock down by either the governments of the host country or the country of residence (where the dental/oral hygiene school is located).
SHOULD WE CONSIDER TRAVELING IN THIS NEW REALITY?
AROUND GOOD PEOPLE core mission is to foster face-to-face human connection, which feels more necessary now than ever once public health allows. Currently, global and domestic travel is not advised for public health as well as personal safety reasons, nor is it possible in most cases. As restrictions begin to relax in the future, we want to acknowledge that travel will continue to have inherent risks and the decision whether to travel is a very personal one. In a world increasingly eager to shut itself off from one another we fear that the current outbreak may be another catalyst for increasing divisions and fear of difference. We hope that this trend will lessen as the disease is brought under control and that we can continue to build bridges and greater understanding between cultures even as this emerging public health concern threatens to re-enforce borders and cultural divides. Ultimately, it’s not a question of if this global health crisis will pass, but rather when. And once it does, the need for an immersive and empathetic global experiential learning in community dentistry will be greater than ever.
