Queen Silvia awarded the 2012 World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child at Gripsholm Castle today.
Here’s an article about this prize, which 7 million children around the world have been voting for, and the quite interesting story of one of its winners, Anna Mollel of Tanzania:

Here’s an article about Queen Silvia’s visit to the Girl’s Home in Hölö for children and adolescents with traumatic childhood experiences of sexual abuse. First opened in 2003, Queen Silvia launched the expansion of the Girl’s Home which now includes a school on location.

Unannounced by the royal court, Queen Silvia went on from South Korea to Japan and visited the UN University in Tokyo today. In her capacity as the founder of the World Childhood Foundation, she delivered a speech at a seminar on child exploitation.
