In Greece, the needs amongst refugee and asylum-seeking children and families remain high. Terre des hommes (Tdh) aims to protect them from danger and to ensure equal access to their rights. We strengthen the child protection system for both migrant and Greek children and we promote child-friendly restorative justice approaches for children in contact with the law. We offer opportunities that encourage children and young people to express their views and influence decision-making.

Key results in 2020

  • 2312 children and caregivers were supported by our child protection teams
  • 759 migrating children were directly assisted
  • 90 unaccompanied children received 745 food baskets 

What we do

CHILDREN AND YOUTH IN MIGRATION

We provide child and family protection services to asylum seekers, including to unaccompanied and separated children in eight open accommodation facilities, through case management, legal assistance, psychosocial support and the provision of essential aid such as clothing, food and hygiene items. We work on advocacy to improve the reception and protection of migrating people. Learn more here.

CHILD PROTECTION

Tdh plays a key role in improving protection measures for children in Greece. We provide child protection and safeguarding training to professionals who work with children – staff members of national authorities and NGOs working in open accommodation facilities for refugees, primary educators and staff working in summer camps. We aim towards expanding our activities to address also athletic associations, sports clubs and other facilities that provide services to children.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Tdh facilitates the access of children and young people to child-friendly justice and promotes the use of restorative justice in cases involving child victims and offenders. Our projects improve knowledge amongst national actors who work with child-victims and offenders on child-friendly restorative justice. We train and educate professionals working with/for children and empower children themselves by teaching them their rights and by supporting them to advocate for their own better protection in the justice system.
