Become a volunteer at Terre des Hommes! Volunteering at Terre des Hommes is a two-way street. You share however much time you can, when you can, we provide a pleasant environment and work that fulfils you.
The Netherlands wants to prevent child exploitation, to get children out of exploitation situations and to ensure that these children can continue their development in a safe environment. Terre des Hommes Nederland focuses on stopping sexual exploitation of children, the worst forms of child labor, child trafficking and migration, sexual and reproductive health and rights and child protection in humanitarian crises. For each of these forms of child exploitation, Terre des Hommes develops and implements projects and programs through local partners, mainly in Asia and Africa.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) has been implementing the Mica Programme since 2015, which aims to eradicate worst forms child labour (WFCL) in the mica supply chain. The programme is implemented in India and Madagascar, as well as having a Global programme component. In mica mining communities we eliminate child labour through child empowerment, education, alternative livelihoods and lobby and advocacy activities. In the Global component we work with downstream private sector actors and conduct lobby and advocacy activities.
The mica team consists of staff based in the India Country Office, Madagascar Country Office and Head Office (supported by the Regional Office East Africa and Regional Office Asia). The volunteer will work most closely with staff based at the Head Office, particularly the Programme Manager, Programme Coordinator and Technical Advisor.
