Numéro d'accréditation auprès du National CSR CommitteeN/1054

The association was founded some 30 years ago to provide relief to persons facing various types of hardships in society. The Fondation pour L’Enfance Terre de Paix grew up to meet the felt needs of people. In this process, the action, which is now more focused on children in the context of the family, gathered both momentum and respect from larger society.
Today, the action of the association remains in line with its original aim: to combat poverty and its resulting consequences on the most vulnerable groups of society, particularly children, in a non-discriminatory way through the child's rights approach.
