As the situation in the country is calming down after the "crisis" (the war), it seems obvious now that the situation of the children got worse during the last few years. Coming from the poor
villages in the Hills , the children whose parents might have died during the war or of AIDS, gather in Bujumbura. The street could be their home for the rest of their life.
Terre des hommes is protecting them and trying to give a future to these children. Most of all, Tdh is implementing a prevention program to protect youngsters against legal and illegal abuse.
