MK Safety Net has created a list of Investigation Teams currently looking into reports of historic abuse that occurred in overseas boarding schools operated by various mission organizations. A list of criteria to evaluate the operating and reporting procedures of Investigation Teams has been developed by MK Safety Net for purposes of endorsement. Among the Investigation Teams of which we are currently aware, we are able to endorse G.R.A.C.E. (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment).
We are hopeful that other investigative organizations will also integrate these best practices for Independent Investigations in their operating and reporting procedures. This will help to ensure the protection and safety of vulnerable children and adults currently in the care of mission organizations, as well as enable survivors of abuse to be more fully supported in their healing journey.
