Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) is an international NGO committed to stopping child exploitation. In Asia, Terre des Hommes Netherlands works in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Thailand, and the Philippines,. We support child victims of exploitation and/or abuse with education, psychosocial support, legal assistance, shelter, job opportunities and medical care; while at the same time targeting highly vulnerable children, who are at risk of being exploited, in our prevention activities. We launch public and media campaigns to create awareness on our focus issues and carry out local research into the extent and nature of abuse and exploitation of children.

TdH-NL in Asia works within four child protection themes: the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC), the Worst Forms of Child Labour (WFCL), Child Trafficking and Migration (CTM), and Child Abuse (CA) specifically focusing on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights. 

Our Vision: Terre des Hommes Netherlands works towards a world where all children have a decent life and can grow up to be independent adults. A world in which children are no longer exploited. We will continue our work until this is accomplished.

Our Mission: Terre des Hommes Netherlands prevents child exploitation, removes children from exploitative situations and ensures these children can develop themselves in a safe environment.
