Tailored to your interests

We recognise that foundations and trusts may have specific interests and objectives. That is why Terre des Hommes tailors its partnerships to fulfil those individual needs too. We help you meet your aims of your foundation or trust while ensuring our collective work achieves long-term, sustainable change for the better.

Foundations and trusts of all sizes can join our mission. Through a joint partnership, we can stop child exploitation.

What a partnership gives you

Terre des Hommes is an experienced partner. We have been fighting child exploitation since 1965. Partnering with us means sharing values with us. This gives us long-term vision to fulfil a long-haul mission. Together, we achieve greater lasting impact.

As a partner, you receive tailored proposals and regular reports about the results of our partnership. Plus, we share our efficient way of working with you. Partnering with Terre des Hommes positions your foundation or trust as a reliable and respectable advocate for child rights.

Our foundation partnerships team is always available to offer tailored advice or more information.

Annual Report 2019

Together we make the difference. A fitting title for our annual report 2019. We are proud of the results we reached this year.

We could only do our work for children with the support of our 64,944 donors, more than 1,800 volunteers, 44 shops, sponsors, institutional donors and the National Postcode Lottery.

In the annual report, you can find the highlights and results of our work in 2019.
