Founded in 1965 Terre des Hommes Netherlands aims to improve the quality of life of children in difficult circumstances around the world regardless of race, faith or political orientation and uphold their rights according to the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.
The mission of Terre des Hommes Netherlands is that the rights of vulnerable children and their families are respected, so that children can properly develop their potential in a safe environment.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands prevents children from being exploited; removes children from exploitative situations and ensures these children can develop themselves in a safe environment.
Childs i Foundation (CiF) was founded in 2009 to focus on promotion of family based care for abandoned children, following the Children’s Act, NSPPI and the Alternative Care Framework.
