H.M. Queen Silvia’s Foundation – Care About the Children

HM Queen Silvia’s Foundation – Care About the Children, has now ended, and all funds have been distributed. This website will be kept open for some time to acknowledge all the fantastic projects and organisations the Foundation had the honour to support during its ten year journey.

The Foundation worked for a world in which every child’s most fundamental needs are fulfilled. Our objectives departed from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and sought to provide every child with access to education and healthcare as well as ensure their safety and happiness. In short, to let children be children!

The Foundation has now been active for the ten years it was planned to operate and terminated on 31 December, 2023. During these years, the foundation cooperated with established organisations in well-defined projects and in doing so supported some of the most vulnerable children in Sweden and around the world.
