Children are the present,
let’s guarantee their future. 
End violence and exploitation!

The Global Action Month on Child Rights (GAM) was founded in 2014 by children and youth of the terre des hommes’ International Youth Network. On the occasion of the anniversary of the UN Children’s Rights Convention children and youth worldwide claim their rights in the action month of November. Last year all over the world there were 164 actions informing more than 40.000 people about their right of a healthy environment.

In 2017 the activities of children and youth are focusing on the protection from exploitation and violence. Worldwide there are more than 85 million children, who have to work daily under dangerous and exploitative conditions. Millions of children suffer from violence and war. Terre des hommes protects children from slavery and exploitation and cares for the victims of war, violence and abuse. The aim is to create safe spaces free from exploitation and violence, where children and young people find protection and safety, so they can stand their ground. Children and youth from terre des hommes projects want to contribute their part through their activities in the context of the global action month 2017.

Children are the present, let’s guarantee their future. End violence and exploitation!
