“I have founded an organization. My biggest wish is to shut it down soon.”
– Queen Silvia of Sweden
With these words, Queen Silvia founded Childhood over twenty years ago. Since our organization’s inception, we have worked persistently to implement Childhood´s vision: to ensure that all children have a safe and loving childhood, free from violence, exploitation, and sexual abuse.
In the United States, we have supported more than 90,000 children through innovative initiatives, projects and ideas that have developed and grown thanks to the support, knowledge, networks and encouragement of Childhood USA.
Childhood USA supports innovative, grassroots programs that prevent and address child sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children in the United States.
