The 2024 United States Out of the Shadows Index, sponsored by World Childhood Foundation USA and developed by Economist Impact, shines a spotlight on state action—and inaction—to address child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA).

Childhood USA – Who We Are:

Winner of the 2024 International Impact award

“I have founded an organization.
My biggest wish is to shut it down soon.”

– Queen Silvia of Sweden

With these words, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden founded Childhood 25 years ago. Since then, we have worked persistently to inspire, promote, and develop solutions to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children.

Childhood USA supports programs for children who are disproportionately affected by child sexual abuse and exploitation, including children with disabilities, children who are homeless or in the foster care system, and children from the LBGTQ+ and other marginalized communities.

This year we have a lot to be thankful for.

Childhood USA is grateful for the amazing programs we support throughout the USA working to ensure that all children enjoy a childhood free from child sexual abuse.

We couldn’t do this without our supporters, donors, and partners.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
