A commitment to child-friendly justice - Juvenile Justice Brochure
There are currently more than one million children around the world who are in detention rather than at school, mainly as the result of the environment in which they were raised; some have not received an education or have been victims of neglect or abuse. Sometimes these children are given heavy sentences despite only having committed minor offences. Terre des hommes fights for these children to be given the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions without ending up in jail, which is a real breeding ground for crime and should always be a last resort.
