our mission

Terre des hommes Foundation, Lausanne, (Tdh) has focused on child trafficking since 1999. Resisting child trafficking is one of its organisational priorities. Terre des hommes has developed an understanding of child trafficking from its fieldwork experience in several countries, from its expertise in child rights and from the collective experience and knowledge of other agencies. From this accumulated experience and knowledge, Terre des hommes has developed its response.

Terre des hommes focuses on three axis of intervention: prevention (on both supply and demand sides), assistance to victims (withdrawal, rehabilitation, social integration), and advocacy. All Terre des hommes projects against child trafficking intervene on the outcome of the trafficking process - the exploitation or slave-like situation.
