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.
Childhood has offices in Sweden, USA, Germany and Brazil with nearly 30 employees in our global family. Below we have presented staff members who are closely connected to our current job openings.
We're passionate about our work, and proud to be a flexible, gutsy organization, willing to come up with new ideas, to take chances, and to tackle difficult issues. Our work is sometimes very tough, but luckily we have a wonderful team and we take care of each other, making sure to savour the laughs. Our work takes us from flooded communities to sandy meetings to high-level roundtables, always with the same focus: to find as many ways possible to fight child sexual abuse.
Childhood works to protect children from violence and sexual abuse. We both initiate and implement projects as well as provide support to local organizations that are developing new and innovative methods to help vulnerable children and families. We also work actively to strengthen the quality and diessemintaion of tested models that reach children and families who have not previously received the support they need. With relatively modest investments, combined with close dialogue and support, Childhood serves as an incubator and helps new ideas and organizations to grow and become sustainable.
