Who we are


Children Win is a campaign led by Terre des Hommes, an international network of NGOs that develops projects to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged children.

Terre des Hommes is a member of the Sport and Rights Alliance, a group of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), sports groups and trade unions who call on international sport organisations to take an ethical approach to their work.

We call on sport governing bodies to ensure human rights, children’s rights, labour standards, respect for the environment, transparency and accountability are at the heart of their decision-making.

Terre des Hommes is also chair of the Mega Sporting Events Child Focus Bidding Criteria Task Force, whose aim is to have both FIFA’s and the IOC’s bidding processes focus on human rights, addressing the risks and opportunities for children before, during and after Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup™ competitions.
