The pandemic threatens vulnerable families.


Pakistan is the sixth most populous country in the world, with 60% of its population under the age of thirty. The country faces many challenges including severe poverty, lack of basic services and political instability. Children, youth and women often lack access to essential services and see their rights denied. Tdh works in collaboration with local partners and governmental authorities to protect children that got in conflict with the law.

What we do

Access to justice

Tdh’s Access to Justice project benefits children in conflict with the law in the central jail of Peshawar. With our local partner, we provide imprisoned youth with recreational and sport opportunities, non-formal education and life skills. Tdh also organises free medical camps for monitoring the health of the young people. We train and sensitise the adult prisoners on child protection policy guidelines. We also engage key justice stakeholders and civil society organisations in policy dialogue to advocate and lobby for the right of juveniles through influencing legislation.

"I was 10 when my parents died and my brother and I left home to find work. I was treated like an animal and ended up alone on the streets. I lost hope."
