Planète Enfants ("Children’s Planet") is a non-political, secular and international NGO per French law, established in 1992.
Its mandate is the protection of children against trafficking, sexual exploitation and other forms of violence.
Planète Enfants works mainly in Nepal, a country where about 12,000 children and young women are victims of trafficking every year for sexual exploitation and which has seen an expansion in migration of at risk populations and hidden prostitution. Its programs aim to prevent trafficking by addressing the causes of the populations’s vulnerability (ignorance, gender discrimination, lack of education, poverty, violence against mothers, emigration ...) and to assist victims and persons in danger. Planète Enfants works with slum communities, likely migrants, and the most remote villages of Nepal as well as prostitutes and mother and child victims of domestic violence.
Planète Enfants also hopes to expand its programs to other countries of origin of trafficking including the Philippines.
