Project Manager for Climate Protection and Children's Rights

terre des hommes Germany is a non-governmental organisation that has been fighting for children’s rights and to promote equitable development without racial, religious, political, cultural or gender-based discrimination since 1967. Together with our partner organisations, we support more than 360 projects in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

Over the past ten years, terre des hommes has expanded and consolidated its political and programmatic commitment to children's environmental rights. Our work is based on the conviction that a healthy and sustainable environment is a basic condition for the development and safeguarding of all other rights of children today and future generations.
