The BRIDGE project is implemented under the lead of Terre des hommes Regional Office for Europe together with partners from Belgium (Defence for Children International DCI-Belgium and FEDASIL), Greece (ARSIS), Malta (Kopin) and Romania (Tdh Romania), and has the overall objective to strengthen the statutory response to GBV affecting children and youth on the move in EU countries.
