Naples, 26th to 29th November 2012
In June 1989, 38 national organizations and networks operating in child welfare, encompassing about 300 NGOs all over the world, joined in the founding of the International Forum for Child Welfare (IFCW) in Haikko, Finland.
The IFCW, which was granted consultative status with the United Nations in 1995, is focused on working for children worldwide to improve the quality of their lives and enhance opportunities for the development of their full potential.
The broad theme of WorldForum 2012 is “Family, children and education at the core of the new challenges of social development: global scenarios, migration and active citizenship”. The event is being held in Naples, Italy, from 26th to 29th November 2012, supported by Regione Campania (Department of Social Policies), hosted by IFCW and Mentoring USA Italia, co-hosted by Fondazione L’Albero della Vita
