Improve laws to protect and educate children


For many years, Planète Enfants & Développement has been leading advocacy actions in Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal and Burkina Faso to improve laws in favor of the protection of children and women, and to enforce them. The association relies on a network of local partners who share its fight.     

Its advocacy work in the field aims to :


  • protect children and women from domestic violence and human trafficking, as well as to improve migration laws.
  •  train local actors, including authorities, on legislative and regulatory frameworks
  • denounce the trivialization of prostitution and the risk of regulation.     
Defending children's rights with the french Groupe Enfance

In 2018, Planète Enfants & Développement joined the Groupe Enfance, a collective of 19 NGOs that are committed on a daily basis in France and around the world to ensure that children's rights are respected.
We share the conviction that constant and sustained attention to children and their rights is a powerful lever for initiating a virtuous circle and achieving the goals of sustainable development and peace. Groupe Enfance is committed to three missions: influencing political decision-makers; strengthening the capacities of international solidarity actors; raising awareness and mobilizing the general public for the realization of children's rights.
In 2020, the Groupe Enfance called on the French government to ensure greater effectiveness of children's rights in its international policy and to take specific measures to respond to the COVID-19 crisis (with particular attention to the most vulnerable children). The Group also called on the President of the Republic, in an open letter, "to move from the Convention to the Acts and to give impetus to a genuine cross-cutting policy for children's rights."

Fight against human trafficking

"The most difficult thing about being a victim of trafficking is the hold. It will stay sometimes in practice, and in all cases psychologically. The work of accompanying victims is one aspect." Geneviève Colas, coordinator of the Collective "Ensemble contre la traite des êtres humains".
Since 2010, Planète Enfants & Développement is part of the Collective "Ensemble contre la traite des êtres humains", alongside 28 associations. This collective advocates for the identification and care of victims of trafficking in France and fights against the commodification of people.
In 2020, the Collective is participating in the monitoring of the implementation of the Council of Europe Convention against Trafficking.

"Trafficking in persons" means the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation includes, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs."
