To protect the rights of children in developing countries, without racial, religious, political, cultural or gender-based discrimination: this is the mission of Terre des hommes Italy, a non-governmental organization based in Milan and member of the International Terre des hommes Federation.
Terre des hommes Italy assists directly almost 2,2 million people, mostly children, with 130 projects in 21 countries. The Federation is present in 67 nations and runs 816 projects, benefiting directly over 6.6 million people. With your help, we could do even more.
We carry out humanitarian relief and international development projects in the sectors of education, mother and child health, income-generating activities, water & sanitation, child protection and rehabilitation, to the benefit of thousands of children, their families and communities.
Terre des Hommes Italy in Jordan
TdH Italy has worked in Jordan since 2003 and it has been officially recognized by the Ministry of Social Development in 2005. The organization has implemented projects in the health sector (reproductive, maternal and child healthcare, non-communicable diseases prevention and awareness, basic health services provision), education sector (public school facilities rehabilitation, learning support services, and teachers’ capacity-building) and protection sector (child protection and early forced child marriage prevention). Most of the interventions have been implemented in the governorate of Zarqa, thanks to the long-term partnership established with TdH Italy’s local partner, the Soldier’s Family Welfare Society.
