It is quite unique for a foundation: more than 40 Terre des Hommes shops can be found throughout the country. They are run entirely by volunteers, who are invaluable.
From almost never worn shoes to games like Monopoly. The Terre des Hommes shops sell secondhand goods of good quality, brought by people. All proceeds, after deduction of costs, go directly to our projects. Last year that amounted to an average about €1.4 million: a considerable contribution.
The work of Terre des Hommes is the work of people. Every hand helps. Each day, hundreds of volunteers work across our shops. You too can contribute right here in the Netherlands by volunteering in a shop.
