World Childhood Foundation was founded in 1999 by H.M. Queen Silvia. The organisation works to prevent abuse and exploitation of children, by supporting over 100 global projects, assisting children who are at risk of, or are victims of abuse, children in alternative care, homeless children, and families at risk. Childhood’s goal is that no child should be exposed to a violent or damaging environment, but instead have the opportunity to grow up with memories of a safe and loving childhood. Villa Dagmar supports the World Childhood Foundation and their global projects to prevent abuse and exploitation of children.
