The future of the world is in the hands of the children


Are you worried about global issues such as climate change, war and poverty? Children are always the first to suffer the consequences. Help the next generation build their future and change the world by leaving an inheritance for children! Your last gift will be the greatest.

With part of an inheritance or a legacy to Terre des hommes, you can lastingly support the future of some of the world’s most vulnerable children. We can assist you in your project and guarantee you complete discretion.
