What does Terre des Hommes do?

Terre des Hommes stops the exploitation of children worldwide. We prevent children from being exploited, take children away from exploitative situations and ensure that these children can develop in a safe environment. Education plays an important role in achieving these objectives.

Terre des Hommes supports over 200 projects distributed across four continents in seventeen countries which are conceived, designed and implemented by local project partners. In other words: our projects are well adapted to the problems of the locals.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is the foundation of our work. We offer help without distinction of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
