Terre des Hommes is characterized by its flat organizational structure with a management team led by our Executive Director. Due to the longer term illness of Albert Jaap van Santbrink, the Board of Directors has appointed Carel Kok as interim Executive Director. In total we count approximately 100 employees active in The Netherlands, and in the countries in East Africa and Asia where our programs are carried out. In addition, nearly 2000 volunteers in the Netherlands give us their time and energy to help us make our ambitions a reality.
So many children suffer while their childhood and by consequence their future are stripped away through violence, exploitation and abuse. Standing by is not an option.

There is still so much work to do. I have lived in the Middle-East, Africa and Europe, unfortunately child exploitation exists in all parts of the world

The mission of Terre des Hommes is to stop child exploitation. These are high ambitions, but I strongly believe in this mission
Manager Finance, ICT & HR
To make sure that we help as many children as we can for every euro that comes in. That's my job at Terre des Hommes and it keeps me motivated every day.
