We have been ambassadors for over two years. In Cambodia and Lebanon we could see for
ourselves how Terre des Hommes makes a difference in children’s lives. We are therefore proud
of being able to contribute.
My parents wrote on my birth announcement card that they had sufficient toys and
clothes for me; those who still wanted to give something were asked to make a donation to Terre
des Hommes. So I literally inherited it from the cradle. For two years, I worked with them to get to
know the organization and to see if this is something for me. Well I’m clear about that: it’s a
I think Terre des Hommes’ national and international work towards ending child exploitation is smart and remarkable. Their use of the newest technology into their campaigns is cleverly effective. And even though I just started, I feel very proud to be part of this family.
I am ambassador because Terre des Hommes protects children against abuse and
exploitation by men on the rich side of the world; wretches who force children with money into
doing things they should not be doing. Sweetie 2.0 allows Terre des Hommes to address an
incredibly major problem.
I as a child was fortunate to receive support from nice people around me. But lots of children are not that fortunate. Can you imagine what it’s like for children who are exploited and have no one to rely on? That motivates me to support Terre des Hommes.
I am especially touched by Terre des Hommes’ thorough approach. They’re not treating
the symptoms, but they combat the cause. And I am impressed by the passion of the people who
work here. What’s more, Terre des Hommes is about the foundation of everything: children.
Too many talented youth in Mukuru (Nairobi) are slipping away. I have grown up there, and seen how so many of my agemates have been lost to drug abuse and crime, I want to give them a platform to appreciate and encourage them. I am still benefiting from what I have learned in the Nairobits training, organised by Terre des Hommes Netherlands. Without this training I would not have been where I am today.
