The WORLD CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION was founded in 1999 by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and supports around 100 projects in 17 countries, focusing on prevention, intervention and education efforts. Childhood’s work is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), and is politically and religiously unaffiliated. The goal of Childhood 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.
Neuschwansteiner and H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria donated a ‘once-in-a-lifetime-experience’ personal guided tour by H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria around the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle. On behalf of foundation trustees, Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria, we would like to thank our partners for their generous donations.
