The Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) is Switzerland's leading child relief agency. It is recognised as being of public utility. We are committed to bringing about lasting improvements to the living conditions of the most vulnerable children, while ensuring that they, their families and their communities are protected.
Tdh runs projects on a non-profit basis, and acts independently of political, racial or religious concerns. As a humanitarian organisation, it has a moral duty to run activities with the greatest respect for the populations with which it works.
For this reason, Tdh requires all staff, partners and volunteers to adhere to the highest standards of behaviour, at all times and in all places, in accordance with humanitarian principles and organisational values1. Tdh constantly strives to improve its practices to ensure that they meet the most stringent international standards in the fields of child protection (also called child safeguarding in this document) and humanitarian aid.
