Terre des Hommes’ (TDH) mission is to work for the rights of the child and for equitable development, without racial, religious, political, cultural or gender-based discrimination. To this end, TDH supports and implements development and humanitarian aid projects designed to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged children, and of their families and communities. The Convention on the Rights of the Child is the conceptual framework guiding the activities of TDH. Tdh’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene programme are governed by principles within the framework of a child rights approach to programming. The Tdh integrated approach consists of both the curative and preventative measures of WASH interventions, health care (primary treatment, nutrition, etc.), protection (psycho-social) and advocacy, so as to tackle the basic causes of the situation. The integrated approach, even in the limited scope of an emergency operation, is accepted by Tdh as the best practice.
