Terre des hommes is actively engaged in protecting children against exploitation, abuse, trafficking and violence. Children with no parental protection, especially street children and AIDS 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. Within the scope of its justice for minors programmes, Tdh provides legal and social support to children in conflict with the law. In addition, each Tdh project has a system to prevent the abuse of the children within it and to swiftly take the necessary legal steps should this however occur.
