Corporate walk (Marche des Entreprises), a new corporate social responsibility (CSR)
initiative in favour of children
Terre des Hommes Suisse is an independent non-governmental organisation, recognised as a public utility, with its headquarters in Geneva. For almost 60 years, Terre des Hommes Suisse has been committed to children and a solidarity-based development.
We work in partnership with local organisations in 10 countries to defend children’s rights.
We work on a daily basis to ensure that children have access to quality, context-appropriate education, are protected from all forms of violence and are empowered to participate fully in decisions that affect them.
