Africa – Arrupe Jesuit University Organizes a Safeguarding Workshop


Arrupe Jesuit University started the New Year with a workshop on Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection against abuse. Fr. Arturo Sosa, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, in his letter to the whole society, “To Share the Suffering of Victims of Abuse and Foster a Culture of Protection”, encourages all Jesuit owned institutions to ensure that all Jesuits and their collaborators are educated to join the fight against abuse of children and vulnerable adults. It was in this spirit that participating in the workshop was compulsory for all members of staff (teaching and non-teaching), and students of Arrupe Jesuit University. The workshop was organized by the African Forum for Catholic Social Teaching (AFCAST) team headed by Sr. Anna Mandeya; the Child Protection Officer in AJU.
