From Budapest to Croatia kayaking down the Danube river (300 km in 3 days). Self-organised and full autonomy race. A sporting but also mental challenge. See my video on the timeline below.

On 30th June, my last day with Terre des Hommes before heading for something new, I will address again the governments at the World Forum on Migration and Development in Berlin.
An extraordinary “slice of life” which I started 17 years ago as program director and today, I am in my sixth year as Secretary General of the Terre des Hommes International Federation. Whatever the future will offer; I will always remain engaged on child rights.
9 days and 9 principles for the protection of children on the move.
A collective objective of 25’000 Euros on the Terre des Hommes websites of several countries.
To my 4'000 colleagues of Terre des Hommes working in 68 countries, why not a farewell gift by contributing to this challenge? 4 Euros for each of the 6'266 days of work at Terre des Hommes.
To my many friends and defenders of the cause of children on the move, collectively, 2’800 Euros per day and per principle for the protection of children on the move.
Thank you for your support, follow me during this challenge and share.
Too many children have to work to feed themselves and their families. Too many are exploited and abused. You can help get children out of work and into school.
