Childhood USA is grateful and proud to share our achievements in 2016.
NEW YORK, December 7, 2016 – Today the Consulate General of Sweden in New York and Consul General Leif Pagrotsky hosted The World Childhood Foundation USA (Childhood USA) to celebrate the organization and its global advocacy platform #EyesWideOpen (#EWO), designed to build greater awareness about and provide resources to address violence and child sexual abuse.
We are proud to share a wonderful thank you letter from Dr. Whitney Maynor, Executive Director at one of our most cherished programs, Bounce!.
Childhood has many partners who share our vision, including our newest, Hästens, who generously helped us raise money for one of our programs, Bounce!*, that works with teen survivors of abuse or neglect. Thanks to Hästens and its team’s creative initiative, the evening raised $64,000 for Bounce!.
On September 16th, the Stewards of Children Prevention Toolkit app was officially launched at a High-Level Meeting at the United Nations hosted by the Swedish and Italian Missions to the UN and Childhood USA in collaboration with The Andrea Bocelli Foundation and its partner, The St.Luke's Foundation for Haiti.
