Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH NL) is an international child rights organization committed to stopping child exploitation.

Our Vision: Terre des Hommes Netherlands works towards a world where all children have a decent life and can grow up to be independent adults. A world in which children are no longer exploited. Our Mission: Terre des Hommes Netherlands prevents child exploitation, removes children from exploitative situations, and ensures these children can develop themselves in a safe environment.

Our vision and mission are inspired and guided by international human rights instruments and standards, in particular the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Council of Europe’s Lanzarote Convention, the International Labour Organization Conventions and aligned with achievement of the SDGs, in particular Goals 5, 8 and 16.

Under our new Global Strategy (2021 – 2025), Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH NL) is redefining and refining its overall role as a child rights organization to engage more deeply in identifying, researching, exposing and responding to hidden, underexposed and emerging forms of child exploitation taking place all over the world.

In Africa, Terre des Hommes Netherlands is currently working in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Madagascar and remains committed to working in other geographical locations across Africa where child exploitation issues may arise.

In Kenya, TdH NL programmes are implemented in Central, Rift Valley, Coastal, Western and Northern regions of Kenya where we collaborate with other CSOs and networks in the execution of projects aimed at preventing child exploitation and providing assistance to exploited children and youth.

TdH NL is currently implementing two projects in Busia County with a focus on protecting children during the Covid-19 crisis and beyond under the JOFA Project and preventing and responding to child labour with a focus on the service industry under the Child Labour Project. We intend within our current Strategy to expand our programme with a focus on eliminating the various forms of child exploitation in the border county, and other neighboring counties.
