About Child 10
Sophie Stenbeck Family Foundation and Reach for Change have founded the Child 10 Award to highlight, support and connect bold leaders of grassroots organizations that work with innovative solutions to address urgent and pressing issues for children. Every year since 2014, the Child 10 Awardees meet in Stockholm for the Child 10 Summit, an exceptional opportunity for them to share best practices and to build on collective knowledge and experience to continue and scale their work for children.

Anta Mbow
Empire des Enfants, Senegal
Nearly 8,000 children live on the streets of Dakar. Many have been sent to the Senegalese capital by relatives in rural areas to learn the Quran. But instead of learning, they end up begging in the streets, where they are vulnerable to abuse. When Senegalese-born Anta MBow moved back to Dakar after living in France for decades, she was shocked to see the number of street children – and decided to open a shelter.
