The Africa Annual report provides an overview of the work and impact of Terre des Hommes Netherlands in Africa in 2021.
2021 presented new opportunities as well as challenges. Together with local civil society partners and other stakeholders, we built our resilience to fight child exploitation (CE). We made tremendous impact in the lives of children. Through various interventions, we managed to protect 38,420 children from abusive, exploitative and dangerous situations, supported 51,885 families with income generating activities and trainings, mobilised 1,758 CSO representatives to lobby and advocate for children, strengthened the capacity of 2,178 government officials, 681 law enforcement agencies, and 718 private sector staff to ensure better coordination in the response to child exploitation.
With the trust and support accorded to us by our donors and development partners, we worked tirelessly to protect children from exploitation. We will continue to work towards building a better world, free from exploitation, for the most vulnerable children in Africa.
