With the CHILDHOOD bracelet, you support the World Childhood Foundation’s fight against sexual abuse and exploitation of children. The bracelet is made of 10 beads in different colours that each highlights the articles the United Nations Convention agreed upon in terms of The Rights of the Child.
The World Childhood Foundation was founded in 1999 by H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden in close collaboration with 14 family trust funds, private investors and companies. The vision was and remains to protect every child’s right to a safe childhood, free from violence and sexual abuse. Since its beginning, the World Childhood Foundation has supported more than 1000 projects and has made the childhoods of thousands of children safer and free from abuse and violence.
