How to participate.
Go to CharityStars (www.charitystars.com) and donate as little as €5 to the Terre des Hommes and Indifesa initiative. The fundraiser will run from the 11 to 26 October 2015. The First Prize Winner will be drawn at the end of the 15 days, alongside the other winners.
“Indifesa”is an initiative that raises funds for girls who are being held as domestic slaves in Peru and Ecuador, to prevent the killing of newborn females in India and to support the education of girls at risk of arranged marriages in the Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and places of war such as Syria, Iraq and Jordan.
Thanks to “Indifesa” the lives of many girls has finally changed. Many girls who were victims of violence and exploitation, housed at Centro (Hogar) Yanapanakusun in Peru, have benefitted from scholarships which have allowed them to learn a profession. While in Mozambique, Terre des Hommes continues its efforts to protect and educate girls at risk of arranged marriages and in Italy, they have opened various investigations concerning the mistreatment of children. These investigations brought to light the damage caused by a lack of prevention, and gave doctors and pediatricians a greater understanding of how to notice the signs of abuse, resulting in the creation of a network of medical centers specialized in the treatment of the victims.
