Terre des Hommes Netherlands (TdH-NL) is a development organisation dedicated to children; it is named after a book by the famous French writer and World War II pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – author of “The Little Prince”. Even before this book was published, he wrote “Terre des Hommes” (Earth for Mankind) in which he called upon ‘the people of the earth’ to take their responsibilities seriously and to show solidarity.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is the cornerstone of all the programmes. This Convention represents the recognition by the international community that not only do children deserve to be protected, but that they have a right to be so. These rights have been enshrined in this almost universally accepted treaty and have subsequently been incorporated in national legislation in an overwhelming majority of the world’s nations.
The main theme of TdH-NL’s work centers on the issue of child exploitation, the most serious violations of the rights of the child. TdH-NL’s definition of child exploitation covers:
- the Worst Forms of Child Labour;
- Child Trafficking;
- Sexual Exploitation of Children;
- Child Abuse.
TdH-NL strives to prevent child exploitation, remove children from exploitative situations and ensure that they can develop in a secure, healthy and supportive environment.
