In Haiti and Peru, our projects support a total of about 2000 children and young people. This support takes the form of activities to support their health and access to basic and vocational education. But also to artistic awakening, to the recognition of their identity (we ensure that all the children supported by our projects have a birth certificate), to their protection (especially with regard to minors in trouble with the law and street children), to their right to participation (notably via youth clubs in 10 rural communities in Haiti and Peru in Cajamarca where children and young people can, together, energize their communities, carry out activities to improve their environment and participate in change,...). The "Le Son d'Enfants" project is part of the same approach, it allows children to cultivate their critical mind, understand and act, in close collaboration with children from Togo, Benin, Haiti...
Adults who have responsibility for children are supported by the establishment of committed communities. This strategy provides an opportunity for existing associations to come together and reflect together on community development to improve the well-being of all people, especially children:

And because children must be protected by laws and state actors who have a responsibility to enforce them, our projects work closely with state actors. Whether in terms of the recognition of children through a civil status document, the improvement of the system of protection of minors in Jacmel (South-East Haiti), support for psychological and social care for the most vulnerable children (Jacmel, Lima), our projects aim to contribute to the improvement of the state system for the protection of children. This approach, known as the "rights approach", aims to improve the situation of children in the long term.
