Founded by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden, World Childhood Foundation USA’s mission is to inspire, promote, and develop solutions to end sexual abuse, exploitation, and violence against children. Throughout the United States, Childhood USA works tirelessly to promote and develop solutions focused on both prevention and recovery. We support programs for children who are disproportionately affected by child sexual abuse and exploitation. We strengthen the safety nets supporting these children by identifying gaps and investing in projects that can bridge them, promoting long-term positive change for 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.
Childhood USA is one of four global World Childhood Foundation locations, with other offices in Sweden, Germany, and Brazil.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
