Terre des Hommes Netherlands focuses on Sexual Exploitation of Children (SEC), the Worst Forms of Child Labour, Child Trafficking and Migration, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), and on Child Protection in Humanitarian Crisis. For each of these forms of child exploitation, Terre des Hommes Netherlands is developing and implementing projects and programmes through local partners, mainly in Asia and Africa.
