In recent years, Ecuador has faced economic turmoil which has been further aggravated by the COVID-19 crisis and an important judicial system crisis. Children, particularly the ones from indigenous communities, still suffer from unequal access to health services and education, poverty, discrimination, violence and difficult access to justice. Terre des hommes (Tdh) strengthens the national juvenile justice system through the implementation of the restorative approach and the training of public officials. We also contribute to the development of legal reform, public policies, guides, and other tools.
