Safe Kids Worldwide
Founded in 1987, SafeKids Worldwide, is a global network of 450 coalitions, 16 countries and multiple organizations. Our mission is to prevent accidental childhood injuries, a leading killer of children 14 & under. We bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, government agencies, and volunteers to educate and protect familes. While injury is a threat to children everywhere, significant progress has been to reduce the risks. Efforts are being made to help create a safety culture in every country where it is sorely lacking.
