The Queen Silvia Fund
“There can be no task nobler than giving every child a better future.”
The Queen Silvia Fund is an endowment which enables young handicapped people, all over the world, to benefit through Scouting. It was created as a lasting gift to commemorate the 50th birthday celebration of Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden.
The initial gift of over US$ 100,000 came from members of the World Scout Foundation's - World Baden-Powell Fellowship. Since then the endowment has grown to a quarter of million dollars. Even so this amount is insufficient to meet all the needs and more contributions are sought to further this special work. Her Majesty personally approves each project grant.
The Queen Silvia Fund currently supports a Street Children project.
