Cooperation is at the heart of the success of Terre des Hommes. Together with project partners in developing countries and with strategic partners in the Netherlands, we stop child exploitation all over the world!
In recent years we have carried out various projects with the annual support from the Nationale Postcode Loterij. The Nationale Postcod Loterij has, for instance, enabled large and sometimes groundbreaking projects, giving our fight against child exploitation a huge boost. The Nationale Postcode Loterij was founded in 1989 to support charities. Meanwhile, 2.5 million Dutch play along with the lottery. They can win hundreds of thousands of prizes every month. By participating, they support charities as half the ticket price goes to 92 charities. Since the Lottery was founded, more than 4.4 billion euros has been donated to man and nature.
By participating in the lottery you support Terre des Hommes and many other charities. The ticket price is € 12,50. We highly recommend the Lottery. Follow the lottery via Facebook and @Postcodeloterij
Terre des Hommes and Fier Fryslân (Proud Friesland, a northern Dutch province) join forces to fight the entire chain of child and human trafficking. For instance, the organisations were founders of the Center for Child and Human Trafficking (CKM), a knowledge and expertise sharing platform aimed to ensure that perpetrators are quickly caught and victims receive better help. This center - which opened its doors in October 2014 - is partly financed by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
Other cooperation initiatives of both organisations include the development of a central knowledge database on human trafficking and the ‘Return and reintegration’ project.
Terre des Hommes, Plan and Defence for Children International / ECPAT work together in the Girl’s Advocacy Alliance. The alliance is aimed at combating violence against girls and young women and enhancing their economic participation in developing countries.
Terre des Hommes collaborates with the Liliane Foundation and the Foundation Kinderpostzegels in an alliance. They received 32 million euros from the development cooperation budget of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the period 2011-2015.De three organisations jointly carry out projects in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Nicaragua. The projects focus on education, health care for mothers and children and socio-economic assistance. Having their own separate focus and expertise, the alliance partners not only complement each other well, but also enjoy synergetic benefits.
The Samenwerkende Hulporganisaties (SHO) is a joint venture of Dutch emergency aid organisations which raises funds in the event of major humanitarian disasters to provide help to the victims. SHO also informs the Dutch public about the disasters. Terre des Hommes is permanent member of SHO. For each individual disaster, Terre des Hommes carefully determines whether to provide assistance itself, through its partner network or via sister organisations.
During the Goed Geld Gala, Terre des Hommes receives a over € 3.8 million to continue the fight against webcam child sex tourism.
This was announced by the Ministry last Friday. The alliance will receive a grant for an amount yet to be determined to combat violence against girls and young women and increase their economic participation in developing countries.
