We act to prevent violence and sexual abuse of children

In Sweden, we support projects that complement the efforts of the responsible government agencies. Particular focus is given to identifying and supporting groups of children and young people who, for various reasons, have fallen between the cracks and are not receiving the help they are entitled to. Several projects also relate to refugee children and their experiences of abuse, trauma and separation. In spring 2017, we gave our support to two book projects: one that discusses work with traumatized children and the other about children’s right to determine over their own bodies/setting limits.
