The future is in children’s hands 

Legs fille Liban

Include our foundation in your will 

Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, Lebanon, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Kenya, Afghanistan… emergencies are rumbling on, and expanding everywhere. In many parts of the world, children are facing humanitarian crises, conflict or chronic poverty that jeopardise their development and undermine their rights.  

But children have an amazing resource within themselves: they have tremendous potential, sometimes all they need is a little help to find the keys to their future and live it to the fullest. A future that you too can help to secure.

Making a lasting impact on children’s lives  

Bequests explained  

A bequest is money or property that you wish to bequeath on your death. In addition to your full contact details, the date and your signature, an official document must be drawn up which specifies clearly that you are designating Terre des hommes foundation in Lausanne as your sole heir or as a beneficiary. A bequest to an NGO is exempt from inheritance or other taxes and duties.

Would you like to leave a lasting impact on the lives of children like Ali, a young Syrian who has been living in a refugee camp since he was born? Or to provide Sharon, aged 17, and her son in Kenya the food they need to prevent malnutrition? Or to make it possible for Hamidou to leave his dangerous mining job in Burkina Faso? Or to give Yazid, aged 13, in Iraq, a way to achieve his dream of becoming an electrician? Or to help Hasina and many other girls in India avoid child marriage?

New inheritance law 

Amendments to inheritance law in Switzerland came into force on 1 January 2023. These reforms leave the testator or testatrix more freedom with regard to their estate. By reducing the legal reserve allotted to children (descendants) and eliminating that allotted to parents (ascendants), these new legal provisions make it possible to leave a bequest to, for example, a charitable NGO, such as Terre des hommes.
