Protection

Intro-protection

Terre des hommes (Tdh) is actively engaged in protecting children against exploitation, abuse, trafficking and violence. Children with no parental protection, especially street children, migrant children and orphans, are particularly exposed to these dangers. Through reintegration with their family, school or a professional activity, Tdh gives them new future perspectives.

Tdh also provides psychological and social assistance to children in times of conflict or natural disasters. Games, sport and artistic activities help children to cope with the traumatic experiences and to rediscover a normal life.

Within the scope of its juvenile justice projects, Tdh delivers legal and social support to children in conflict with the law. Tdh supports legal systems to implement non-custodial measures focused on education and social reintegration.
