The Supervisory Board supervises the management and the general course within the organisation. The Board determines the main lines of Terre des Hommes' policy, supervises its implementation, acts as a sounding board and provides advice.
"I am honoured to join Terre des Hommes’ Advisory Board. There is no place for child abuse in this world. It is injustice done to the most vulnerable, and as a legal professional but especially as mother of two young girls, I am keen to support Terre des Hommes on its mission to stop child exploitation. "
"All children, no matter where they are, have the right to grow up in safety. Every child that is exploited or abused is one too many. I hope that my experience and background will help me to contribute to Terre des Hommes’ mission to eradicate child exploitation, and that I can thereby contribute something to improving the safety and protection of children in the Netherlands and around the world."
"A better future for vulnerable children in this world without exploitation and abuse should be completely natural. With Terre des Hommes we are committed with great conviction and dedication to give these children free and fair chances for a better world."
"Obviously, there should not be any child labour or child abuse in this world. Unfortunately, in many parts of the world this is not the reality. For 50 years Terre des Hommes has been dedicated to eliminate child exploitation: a goal that I feel very connected to."
"From the moment my children wake up, they have a plan, a goal. "Dad, today I'm going to build a hut, or make a painting." Trying new things makes everyone happy. Elsewhere in the world, children have one and the same goal every day: survival. On plantations, in mines, in prostitution. As long as this inequality exists, Terre des Hommes is needed. I am happy to be able to make a contribution. "
We think it's important to let you know what happens to donations. Through films, photos and written words, our annual report shows what we have achieved all year in the fight against child exploitation.
