Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) works against child exploitation, removes children from exploitative situations and ensures these children can develop themselves in a safe environment. It is an international non-governmental organisation that works to create a world free of child exploitation. Since 1965 it has protected tens of millions of children from violence, child labour, trafficking, sexual exploitation, malnutrition, and other challenges.
In addition, TdH-NL offers humanitarian aid worldwide, focusing on children and their immediate protection needs in emergency situations, whether natural disasters, medical emergencies, conflicts or war.
TdH-NL’s programmes contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in collaboration with various stakeholders, particularly SDG 5.2 which aims to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls; SDG 8.7 which aims to eliminate forced labour, modern-day slavery and human trafficking, including (the worst forms of) child labour; and SDG 16.2 which aims to end abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence and torture against children and SDG 17, working in partnerships for systemic change.
