Our work in East Africa

Our programmes in East Africa fight child exploitation in Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. We provide children the chance to empower themselves, going to school and living healthier lives.

We help children at risk of being picked up and sold by traffickers to work in mines, as house slaves or for sexual exploitation. 

To victims of violence or sexual exploitation, we provide a safe place, medical help, education and legal support.

To girls forced into marriage or at risk of genital mutilation, we provide shelter and education. This way they can be safe and finish school. 

Together with communities, police and governments, Terre des Hommes is helping build societies in East Africa that protect the rights of children.
