Terre des Hommes

Terre des Hommes Foundation Lausanne decided to tackle the problem of undocumented child migration by launching a regional project in 2008 whose aim was to offer migrant children better protection. The project was implemented, through local and strategic partnerships, in five countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea, Mali and Togo. 

While mobilizing Governments, civil society, local communities and public opinion, Terre des Hommes and its partners will develop a protection system for migrant children, which will protect them all along their way, from their point of departure to their return back home, fighting against exploitation, trafficking and abuse.

This study is based on the participation of the child in its own protection, with a focus on labor migration which is one of the main cause of children mobility in West Africa.
