To help end sexual abuse and exploitation and educate to prevent such practices


The World Fund for the Dignity of Children was created by the Women's World Summit Foundation in August 1996 as a response to the urgent call for action launched at the first World Congress against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (Stockholm, August 1996).


To contribute in the eradication of sexual child abuse and educate to prevent such practices; support the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and empower children to claim their right to dignity.

The Fund supports annually NGOs, grassroots associations and groups working on prevention and rehabilitation of sexually abused children.

Project selection

Applications for funding are examined by a coordinating committee, which annually selects relevant prevention and rehabilitation programs based on strict criteria. The amount dispersed is dependent on contributions received from Fund members. An activity report is published annually.
