For millions of children worldwide, every day is a struggle, every day counts.

For children oppressed by the violence of war, exhausted by exploitative working conditions or assaulted in squalid prisons, every day is a struggle for survival. For babies who are born without access to primary healthcare, every day is a struggle for survival. For children caught up in migratory flows, each day is a struggle for survival, spent in fear, uncertainty and hopelessness.

Confronted with this inhumane and unacceptable plight, it is vital to act immediately in a race against time where every day counts. This is why at Terre des hommes, as part of our daily work, we are committed to making positive and sustainable changes impacting the fate of these children. Because every day in the life of a child is particularly precious, because every day counts.

Every day, in over 30 countries, Terre des hommes teams are making a difference for children and their families: in 2014, more than 2.1 million people benefited from our health and child protection initiatives.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who make this possible, whether it is through their work, their financial support or volunteer commitments in Switzerland and worldwide.


The year 2014 was a continuation of 2013.The Terre des hommes Foundation recorded a total income of 68.8 million Swiss francs (CHF) compared to CHF 67.5 million in 2013 (+ 2%). Costs have increased to CHF 69.4 million compared to CHF 64.9 million in 2013 (+ 7%). This limited loss allows the Foundation to keep intact its strong financial position and ensures its work to help children in the future.

Acting together, because every child counts.
