Terre des Hommes

This study, commissioned by Terre des homes and co-edited by the Regional Working Group on Child Protection in West Africa, represents a summary of information available about locally developed (or ‘endogenous’) practices that have the effect of protecting children who leave home to earn a living away from home, whether the practices occur before children depart, while they are travelling or once they reach their destination.

Locally developed child protection practices refer to the local attitudes, behavior and actions that protect children, based on beliefs, knowledge and ways of doing things that have emerged from tradition or experience.
