Yes, I want to help stop child abuse in East Africa


Child abuse in East Africa

Kindermisbruik in Oost-Afrika Terre des Hommes

Child abuse is quite common in East Africa. It is happening at home, at school, or - in the case of child labourers - in the workplace. In addition, children who live in child care institutions are often victims of abuse. With this programme we focus on the forms of child abuse that have the most serious consequences: sexual abuse and violence. This includes child abuse based on traditional and cultural grounds, such as child marriage and Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
