What we do


Each year, thousands of children and parents benefit from the activities implemented by Terre des hommes Romania in the following fields:

  • Protection and promotion of children’s rights by strengthening the protection system. We mobilize communities to prevent risk situations and we collaborate with social workers, teachers and other professionals to protect children. We seek to increase children’s and youth’s resilience; we help them participate in making decisions that concern them. We invest in education, health, social services and infrastructure in order to improve life of disadvantaged children in Romania. 
  • Supporting children affected by migration. Migration negatively affects children’s life in many ways: from parents who leave the country to children who migrate by themselves or with their family. In this field, our priorities are preventing children’s and youth’s unsafe migration, and making sure that children already affected by migration have access to their fundamental rights.
  • Access to justice for children. Terre des hommes believes in an efficient justice system where youth are not deprived of liberty. Therefore, we develop specific methodologies for professionals who work with children in conflict with the law and friendly practices for children, with focus on mental balance and resilience.
