For over 20 years World Childhood Foundation USA’s (Childhood USA), founded by HMQ Silvia of Sweden, mission has been to inspire, promote, and develop solutions to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children. A United Nations accredited NGO, Childhood USA has served over 90,000 children and their families in the United States – both directly and indirectly – through innovative and grassroots programmatic support, global advocacy initiatives, such as #EyesWideOpen (co-founded by H.R.H. Princess Madeleine), and high-level meetings with government, academic, civil society, and private sector leaders.
A world where all children are free from violence, sexual abuse, and exploitation.
To inspire, promote, and develop solutions to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children.
We work in three thematic areas – Child Supportive Environments and Relationships, Child Safety Online, and Child Focused Response to Abuse. The themes are chosen based on the areas where children are particularly vulnerable, the needs for our work are greatest, and where we as an organization have the greatest experience and knowledge and thus can make the most difference.
