terre des hommes - Help for Children in Need
terre des hommes works for children suffering from poverty, exploitation or violence in 39 countries. Along with our local project partners we seek solutions when children live in the street, work under inhuman conditions or have to prostitute themselves, and when a war has destroyed their health or their homes. We support women, families and communities in caring for their children and we help young people to build a future beyond violence and poverty. Such direct-help projects are very important. But they do not suffice in themselves: terre des hommes has therefore always tried to understand and tackle the root-causes of poverty, exploitation and violence. Other campaign goals therefore include respect for children's rights worldwide, more justice in international economic relations or a consistent anti-poverty policy.
