Our gift this company season is a a book about Childhood 20 years, which we have made together with World Childhood Foundation, about their work to give children a more loving and caring childhood. The book presents many of the projects that have received support – and you also meet Queen Silvia who explains why she founded Childhood.
In 1999, World Childhood Foundation was founded by Queen Silvia of Sweden, in order to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children. In the 20 years that have passed since then, Childhood has given support to over thousand different projects, in order to develop new methods and models so that more children can have a safe and loving childhood.
The book For a childhood free from violence (För en barndom fri från våld, Business History Publishing, 2018), which we have produced together with Childhood, presents many of these cases. Much work remains, but Childhood has shown over its two decades that with combined efforts, violence and abuse of children kan be stopped.
The book marks the beginning of Childhood’s 20-year jubilee in 2019. At a gala in December, a few days before Queen Silvia’s 75th birthday, the book was presented to the Queen as a much appreciated gift.
The book is currently available in Swedish. In February, there will be editions also in English, German and Portuguese.
