H.R.H. Princess Madeleine has accepted H.M. Queen Silvia’s invitation to join her as Deputy Honorary Chair at Childhood. This big announcement was shared during Childhood’s annual meeting and means that from now on H.R.H. Princess Madeleine will act next to H.M. Queen Silvia and her engagement in Childhood. This is a natural part of the organization’s long-term plan and vision for 2030.

“We are thrilled that H.R.H. Princess Madeleine has accepted the invitation and will take on a bigger role at Childhood. We see it as a natural step considering her long-term engagement for children’s rights and vast experience from working in several parts of the organisation” says Kenneth Bengtsson, Chair at World Childhood Foundation.

“I feel honoured and happy to be given this trust. These are some really big shoes to fill but I will do my outmost in my new role as Deputy Honorary Chair. The support from the entire Childhood-family makes me feel confident in taking this next step” says H.R.H. Princess Madeleine.

A Christmas greeting and message for the future from the founder of Childhood, H.M. Queen Silvia can be seen here.

Childhood works to protect children from violence and sexual abuse. We 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 can serve as an incubator and help new ideas and organizations to grow and become sustainable. Childhood was founded by H.M. Queen Silvia in 1999.

Ny avancerad teknik ska stoppa sexuella övergrepp mot barn.10.3.2022 07:30:04 CET | Pressmeddelande

Under 2021 identifierade LIBRA miljontals bilder av sexuella övergrepp mot barn och gav insikter om hur materialet rör sig mellan europeiska länder. Programmet lanseras nu i större skala på den europeiska marknaden. Det möjliggör en bredare ansträngning för att bekämpa sexuella övergrepp mot barn eftersom det kan användas av flera aktörer utöver de brottsbekämpande myndigheterna. LIBRA är utvecklat av det nederländska företaget Web-IQ och har möjliggjorts genom finansiering och stöd från det nederländska säkerhets- och justitieministeriet och World Childhood Foundation.
