PED : Emancipation & Development

Bruno Bara

Planète Enfants & Développement (PED) celebrates its 35th anniversary. Since 1983, the association has been working to protect and integrate vulnerable women and children who are victims of violence.

Present in Burkina Faso, Vietnam, Cambodia and Nepal, PED works alongside local organisations to set up sustainable projects that promote self-sufficiency.

In Nepal, for example, a country still suffering from the consequences of the 2015 earthquake, the economic and social situation remains precarious. Single women migrate from their rural areas to the cities in search of work. Isolated and destitute, 50 to 75% of them are dragged into prostitution. Their children are also often victims of violence.

Since 2015, PED has rebuilt three schools destroyed by the earthquake in Nepal, trained about 50 women in trades that empower them financially and reached more than 15,000 children. In the Kathmandu Valley, 192 parents have attended parent education sessions, 51 children have had access to school and 37 teachers have been trained.

Since 2014, the Insolite Bâtisseur Philippe Romero Foundation has been supporting PED’s activities in Nepal.
