Frères des Hommes (FDH) is a development NGO founded in 1974 in Luxembourg, without political or religious affiliation. It bases its activities on long-term partnership with Southern interlocutors (non-governmental organizations, social movements, grassroots associations, etc.). This approach involves sharing ideals and objectives, supporting new or existing projects and co-responsibility.
The target audiences in the South are therefore involved in all stages of the projects supported by Frères des Hommes: from the conception to the elaboration and realization of its activities.

It also helps children and young people in distress with vocational training and protection projects against child trafficking or child labour in nine African countries.
