Sisters of our Lady of Apostles

Child Safeguarding

We, the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA), commit ourselves by the vows of religion to follow Christ as the Apostles did. We are committed to the promotion and protection of authentic human values, which are an integral part of the proclamation of the Gospel.

Inspired by the example of Jesus in showing great love, respect and care for children, we believe that each child must be cherished and affirmed as a gift from God and has an inherent right to dignity of life and bodily integrity.

We commit ourselves to do all in our power to ensure that the children who come in contact with us in any way will be cared for in a safe and enabling environment, where their holistic development is facilitated and where they are safeguarded against any form of harm or abuse. We do our utmost to ensure that the fundamental rights of these children are always respected and upheld.
