ABOUT TERRE DES HOMMES
Terre des hommes (Tdh) is the leading Swiss organisation for children’s aid. Since 1960, Tdh has helped build a better future for vulnerable children and their communities, making an impact with innovative and sustainable solutions. Active in around 40 countries, Tdh works with its own teams and/or local and international partners to develop and implement field projects which significantly improved the daily lives of over four million children and members of their communities in 2019, in the domains of health, protection and emergency relief.
Through our Access to Justice programme, we encourage states in Europe to provide effective access to justice for children in contact with the law. We support the implementation of non-custodial measures for children and of stronger procedural safeguards. With our partners, we promote the use of restorative justice processes in cases involving children, either as victims or suspects/offenders. Through innovative methodologies, we engage with children to ensure that we understand their views. At regional level, we facilitate the sharing of best practices and learning, awareness-raising and advocacy for child-friendly justice. We also support the creation of the Barnahus multi-disciplinary service that provides care for child victims and witnesses of violence and abuse.
Tdh Regional Office in Hungary is leading the project “i-RESTORE - Better Protecting Child Victims Rights through Restorative Justice” (September 2019 until August 2021). The project’s main objective is to promote the use of Restorative Justice in cases involving child victims by improving knowledge amongst national stakeholders on child-victim friendly Restorative Justice and empowering children to advocate for better protection of child victims.
