As an independent, private foundation, we at Childhood have a unique opportunity to support untested ideas, stimulate unexpected collaborations and invest in solutions and change agents that we believe in, but which have not yet been established. A large part of our work is about understanding needs and gaps related to reducing the risks and mitigating the consequences of child sexual abuse. We invest a lot of time and effort in seeking out, initiating and supporting innovative projects that in the long run can create sustainable change. With knowledge, funding and networks, we give strength to ideas and innovation that protect children in Sweden and in the rest of the world. This both contributes to long-term systematic change as well as improving life here and now for the individual child.
